Tropical Colours to the Front

Miss C started back at school this week. It's been VERY early mornings, trying to get myself and then her out of bed. The summer really played havoc with our sleeping patterns and you could find me nodding off halfway through the day. I'm such a night owl to begin with, so having to adjust and be in bed before 11pm is actually quite difficult.  Miss C adjusted much better than I did, thank goodness, but it's getting better; I don't feel like I've changed time zones so much now.

Oh, and she's in Year 2 now. I can't believe how fast the time has flown. It seems like only a year ago she was playing with toys in playgroup, and now she's such an independent, decision making little person.

So, here's another layout from the holiday. I just love this outfit Miss C is wearing. Combined with the lighting, this photo turned out stunningly. The paper collections are from two years ago, but are just so eye catching, I had to use them.

I love the bright sherbet colours of the papers that bring out the colours in Miss C's dress. I distressed the edges of everything but didn't ink them so the white core would show.
Cutest little turtle chippies and the beach accents with the swirly frame pull your eye into the photo.
The rough texture of the large orange letters make it feel like sand. The "princess" was cut from my new eClips die-cutting machine. I cut three of the same words from cardstock and layered them up to give it more of a chipboard feel.
I felt the layout was missing a little something to tie it together, so I added splatters give the layout an extra dimension.
