{Oh Baby} - CMS and MSAM challenges

Hi everyone!  Popping in today to post a layout I created for the Color Me Scrappy challenge #61 and My Scraps & More sketch #80.  When I saw the CMS color scheme, I knew I had to use it...my absolute favorite color is purple, and I don't get to use it often since it's not usually part of collections these days.  <Insert sad face>

But I pulled out a Basic Gray collection called Kioshi!  Here's my chunky monkey at 5 months old:



Here's the sketch:


And here's the color scheme:


I followed the sketch pretty closely except I only had one photo to use.  The base is CTMH Smokey Plum.  I used the Basic Gray Kioshi collection, apiece of vellum to mat my photo, some CTMH Grey Wool CS, and some light green Bazzill textured cardstock.  


I inked the edges of the pieces using CTMH Smokey Plum and Slate ink.  I machine stitched using gray thread on the Smokey Plum cardstock and purple thread on the flower pattern strip as well as the top right corner of the polka dot piece.


I was lucky to find this cut file that had a flower that matched the flower on the paper.  I used my Cameo to cut several sizes of the flower from different matching papers to put on the top left and bottom right of the layout.


For the title, I used white chipboard letters for the "OH" and cut the banner and "baby" using my Cricut Imagine and the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.  I topped the banner with light green tabs which I stapled on with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher (*love* that thing).


I used Hero Arts Pearls & Gems for the flower centers, and journaled using an opaque white pen.

I hope you like my rendition of these challenges...see you soon!
