March 123 Challenge- 'Dream Big Sweet Girl'

Tuesday, 11 March 2014


When I saw this month's 123 challenge I decided to give it a go: even though pastels aren't always my friend! But I happened to have purchased this pretty peach/lemon/blue floral paper just days before and immediately knew I wanted to use it.

My take:

Washi tape covered wood elements are one of my favourite things at the moment, the little arrow just worked so much better on the page when covered in the peach washi! Also loving handcut script words, the word 'girl' tortured me for a little while being so small but we got there in the end.

And the challenge criteria:

I really wanted to keep this layout simple, soft and feminine to showcase the photo and sentiment and fit with the challenge. I LOVE how it turned out, it's a little hard to photograph all the layers so it's prettier in real life but I've posted a close up to show some of the dimension. It sure helps that my little cousin Maddie is such a beautiful girl!

Anywho, if you want to check out the challenge yourselves head over to:

Thanks for looking!
