Sunkissed Collection: Layout Inspiration by Melinda

Hello and Happy Easter... it's Melinda with you today and I'm finishing the week off with one final project using the gloriously bright and funky 'Sunkissed' collection.

A dear friend of mine had some amazing photos taken of her boys in their new pool and I couldn't resist creating a layout for her using Sunkissed... it just seemed to work in perfectly!

I've commited myself to making sure that every layout I do from now on has some form of story, no matter how brief and it must also contain a date. I have been a little slack worrying more about design than actually paying attention to the details that will matter in years to come.

However, in saying that... I still want to play around with fun designs and I'm hooked on using all the little embellishments to create fun mosaic styled backgrounds for my photos. And how cute are all the 'Sunkissed' bits and pieces? Doodlebug's standard colour palette means that no matter what collection you are using, all the embellishments will match... no matter what! Love it!

I love hand stitching on layouts because I truly find it relaxing and it means I can sit and catch up on a bit of television whilst I'm at it... it's my therapy!

Thank you for stopping by today and again I would like to wish you all a happy Easter!
