Scraptivations: Challenge 2

This time we had a really color challenge. We had to look at a photo and draw inspiration from it. I decided to pull the colors from it. Green, yellow, and brown. I have been trying to decide what I wanted to do with this inspiration and then today as I was going through photo's I came across this one of my oldest daughter Danielle. This was from a fun day when we went and took a ton of photo's for her senior photo shoot. This is the one we put in her graduation invatations. 
I pulled this design off of a horizontal 8 1/2 x 11 PageMaps sketch. I don't really do that size so I just motified it to fit my needs.

I popped up a few of the circles to add some deminsion.

some chipboard letters

and some buttons and my new favorite fiskars punch. I also did jounaling in a white gel pen. I also took my journaling to a new level. Normally I just journal about the photo's but here I decided to write a message about how proud and how blessed I am. I think I will try and do this more for each of my girls. I know I would love to have something like that from my mom. I know she feels those things for me but when it is in writing...well it makes me a little mushy.

Here is the inspiration photo.

Won't  you come and join us over at Scraptivations?

Stampin Up Papers and ribbon, Papertrey buttons, thickers letters, white gel pen.
