Moody Monday - 1/20/14 - Pretty in Pink!

As you know, I promised every other Monday I would play with a mood board and create a layout or project based on that board.  This Monday, my inspiration comes from a beautiful mood board that I found on Pinterest called Pink Ladies.  I loved the amazing textures, flowers, color scheme, and I knew the perfect pictures to go with it. 
And here is the layout that I created of my beautiful daughter going to Homecoming for the first time!  Obviously I was inspired by the lace flowers but I also created the trim from muslin and dyed it a light shimmery pink to represent the dress in the mood board.  I loved the camera embellishment and couldn't resist adding a camera chalkboard label.  I also added a bit of blue and mint to go with the inspiration mood board.  I hope you like it!

Moody Monday 1/6/13

Who isn't moody on a Monday morning??  Well I recently fell in love with mood boards (little collections of inspiration) to spice up my layouts.  My layouts seem to be a bit blah lately and I felt that I needed to include more textures, layers, and frankly some spice.  So I decided that every other Monday - twice a month - I would share with you a special mood board and inspired layout.  This week's inspiration comes from two places.

1.  I loved the colors and textures in this mood board from
2.  The second piece of inspiration revolves around the CUC DT Board.  Our challenge this month is to use our stash and scraplift another.  So I chose to scraplife Annie C.'s beautiful Be Brave layout.  I rotated the design to fit my layout.

And finally, here is Queen Coco.  All hail the queen!!!  She truly is the queen of our house.  She sits on a furry pillow, gets carried everywhere she goes, rules the cat (and her food might I say), and honestly has a fluffier bed than I do!!!  :)  So again All Hail COCO!!!

I was inspired to use the sheer ribbon similar to the invitations, the flower inspired my fluffy flowers, of course there was color inspiration, and I loved the addition of the "book print" in the fan so I included that in the patterned paper and flower.  I couldn't resist a little bling like the earrings in the center of the flowers and gems on the crown.  Hope you enjoyed my little mood board inspiration.  Check back soon!
