Happy 'stache Memories

So today is my official first day of duty for American Crafts and I am sooo excited! I thought it would be a great time to show you this layout I created with the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook collection! I know it's a bit bright but neon is in and this collection is living up to that fun trend.

This layout is from a baby bash some of us threw for my cousin Kim, I am soo excited for her and her hubby Jose, who are having a sweet baby boy this fall!  I'll share photos of how we decorated for the shower very soon but in the meantime, here's a little peek at part of the theme - mustaches!

My other cousin, Veronica made these cute mustaches and a frame for our party guests to pose with. My youngest daughter and I had a blast playing along. We got a cute this shot of us together.
Supplies: American Crafts Amy Tangerine Sketchbook collection.

Creative How To: I used the grey and black neutral paper as my background to offset all the color I was intending to use. I misted over the sheet and then layered paper and bits of fussy cut elements, tags, brads and more behind my photo. I knew when I looked at the paper that I wanted to add more pops of color and lucky for me, there is another paper in this collection exactly like this neutral sheet but the cameras are colored in. Naturally, I cur out some of the cameras and placed them around the page. I then added fussy cut popped-up flowers and brands on some of them to add dimension.


Journaling reads: We had an absolute blast playing with our mustache disguises at Kim's baby shower. Reese & Mommy August 2012.


Thanks for stopping by today! There's more American Crafts projects coming soon!
