Somewhere Over the Rainbow: Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Hello again!  I recently discovered the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog (http://heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com/), and since I made a layout using the rainbow-striped paper from the Stitched Together paper packet the other day, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share it with you! 

This layout is nearly 100% made of Close To My Heart products (the exceptions being the dark blue mat behind my picture and the gray string in my tag), and I had so much fun playing with my newest goodies from CTMH!

I used a mixture of paper from both the Stitched Together paper packet and the coordinating mix-in paper and cardstock.  Those rainbow stripes are so fun and playful!  The white flowers on the blue strips of paper are one of the zip strips from the paper packet; I just cut the strip in half and both pieces fit perfectly onto my page.  The zip strips are half-inch bonuses that can be cut off of the 12 x 12 paper and used for embellishment. 

Let's talk about my favorite part of this layout (besides that rainbow paper and my husband and daughter, of course!):  THE FLOWERS!  Aren't they just gorgeous?

My Stitched Together paper packet came with a sticker sheet, and the pale pink flower, small red flower, and dark blue leaves are stickers.  I wanted to layer some MORE FLOWERS (why not?) onto those stickers, so I pulled out my Beautiful Day stamp set with Thin Cuts.  You can see here that I've stamped the Lagoon small flower and green leaves and then layered them with the stickers.  I did this again at the top of the page with my journaling tag. 

To finish the page, I randomly stamped the small flowers and dots and created splatters with my Mint Shimmer Brush.  This is one of my favorite pages, and I think it is because the rainbow stripes compliment the gorgeous flowers so perfectly!
