Fairies Do Cry layout

Hello! :) I have been fortunate enough to have been able to scrap every day this week. It's not often that happens and I have enjoyed all the creative, hands-on work.

I have another layout to share created from the January Sketch-a-thon happening at Memorable Seasons this month. This layout is based off of sketch #3. The sketch is fantastic! My layout did not turn out quite like I had envisioned, but that's OK. I very much like the end result. I did struggle with the colors- green has always been a huge challenge for me to work with, and I think that made it difficult for me to finish it in one sitting. I slept on it, and was able to complete the details with fresh eyes and a more open mind. I know that not every layout needs to be perfect, but I also think it's important to end up with something I like enough to call done.
I dug deep into my stash to create this. I used pp from Prima, October Afternoon, MME, LYB and Pink Paislee. Flowers are Petaloo and unknown. Bling is Doodlebug, and alphas are AC Thickers and Basic Grey.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I am looking forward to a weekend of creating and football. I do have to work for 3 hours on Sunday, but that's OK.

  1. Raechelle your layout is gorgeous! My difficult colour is yellow or orange.....I love green and your chosen shade of green is just beautiful. I definitely agree that you sometimes need to walk away or sleep on it and comeback to complete a layout to your liking. Good on you for using a colour that challenges definitely should be pleased with the result!


I thank you so much for your kind comments! :) Have a beautiful day.
