Good Morning Everybody!
Thanks for coming over! Today, please join me over at Graphic 45's blog as they reveal several incredible layouts by fellow DT members, the totally talented and amazing Tara Orr, Jane Tregenza and myself. Of course I have been paired with two of the BEST layout artists around! Good Heavens!
If you read yesterday's post, I was saying that this was my very first layout EVER! Out of all the things Graphic 45 asked us to create for their booth at CHA this was the doozie for me! I mean DREADED DOOZIE with sugar on top! How many YouTube videos can you watch to find out how in the heck this is done! Seriously, if you did a YouTube video on a layout, chance are I saw it! LOL! I stand totally amazed and in awe at all you layout artist in the world! I totally stared at 12 x 12 pages for hours! I was assigned Bird Song to make my layout, which you may not know this, but it wasn't even in print yet. We used the sample paper which meant simply...NO MISTAKES! LOL! That added a little more pressure huh? GREAT! :) I do want to say this, once I glued just one little piece on top of the main page, I was off. My mind started to work and it was OK. So lesson learned for me...Just start!
So here's what I came up with. I hope you like it....
I have to give you a bit of background real quick. I knew I had the gorgeous Bird Song collection to do my layout in, however, I had NO picture to use that was even close to looking Asian themed, (probably didn't need the Asian themed picture, but that's what I had on my mind.) so I called my incredibly awesome sister in a panic and asked her if she could round up the kids and take some shots in anything Asian inspired. Y'all, as always, Kim came through with the magic! Within two hours she sent me 30 AMAZING pictures to choose from. My niece Molly Jane, who might as well be a professional photographer, had my other beautiful niece Liya Kate perfectly framed in a bed of tissue balls and paper lanterns! Thanks Kim, Molly Jane and of course Liya Katherine for being such a sport and helping Uncle Bubba out! :)
Please take a moment and check out the other AMAZING layouts on the Graphic 45 blog today!
Thanks For Coming By Y'all!
