Road Trip Niagara Falls & TCR#72

So I got some time to play this weekend with some new Jillibean Soup, Apple Cheddar line for an upcoming Scrapjazz.com article and The Color Room's color palette. Here is this weeks tidbit of inspiration from The Color Room:

So I had to dig a little deeper in my stash than usual to come up with the colors but Joy Ride by Cosmo Cricket paired up nicely with bling cardstock and a little Jillibean Soup. I also turned the sketch a 1/4 turn to the left and added extra photos too. Here is the result:

I think it turned out perfect for Gabe's album, a sweet layout for my little cutie. 
Let me know what you think!

The Color Room Palette #69

Just wanted to share the layout I did for last weeks palette at The Color Room. The sketch this week is perfect for summer and the palette is too! Here is the inspiration:

So I took it in my own direction but did stay true to the sketch and colors. I created a layout that features my top 3 dream vacation destinations:
Materials Used: Basic Grey/Recess; Bazzill Swiss Dot/White; Jillibean Soup/White Corrugated Alpha- #3 & brown mini kraft alphas; Making Memories Alphabet Stickers/Glitter Bling & Shimmer Alpha; Hero Arts/Stitching stamp; Art Warehouse-Ribbons & Lace/Stripe line stamp; Stampin Up Ink/Chocolate Chip & Sahara Sand; Fiskars border punch/Upper Crest

We can all dream right?! Ahhh to float down a street in Venice, to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef or explore the art of Paris....  maybe someday. I used lots of stamping, a border punch and paper pieced the  sunburst. I was happy with the result, let me know what you think! In fact I am going to make a coordinating page with my top 5 U.S. vacation destinations. So stay tuned for that one.

Have a fantastic weekend, we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Scott's parents! Looking forward to time with family and a trip to Niagra Falls!
