Color Me Purple 7 Kids College Fund Challenge

Hi Everyone! I'm running a bit behind but I wanted to share with you a NEW challenge we have going on at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog. It just started this past Wed. and runs for 2 weeks so you have PLENTY of time to join in the fun! This week we're showcasing the color PURPLE.

Purple just happens to be my favorite color and I adore this Swiss Pixie Lucy stamp - she's adorable and perfect for this picture of my daughter when she was just a baby. Her middle name is Faye because when she was born, I thought she looked just like a little fairy. She still does actually so I think we gave her just the right middle name!

Seriously, how cute is this stamp? I colored her with copics after I stamped her on Copic Xpress It Blending Cardstock. I used a new skin color combination that I saw on the Copic Facebook page which is E01 and E04. I really love this color and it has that violet undertone to match the rest of the image that I colored with BV and V's.

I got these tiny envelopes from a sweet friend of mine in a swap recently and I just couldn't wait to use them. Then I was inspired by THIS layout by Lesley Langdon to use it on my layout. I added a little note to my daughter inside the envelope. When she first saw the page she just stared and stared at it with a smile on her face, I think my kids like me venturing into scrapbooking more as much as I am! 

Here is a close up of the picture of my daugther. I'm not so sure i should have fussy cut her out but once I started I was committed.

I absolutely love these yo yo's and flat backed buttons from Freckles & Pigtails. Helmar 450 Quick Dry is a must have for adhering these to my pages.

For my banner, after I threaded the twine (using a needle definitely came in handy) I used Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to add dimension to each banner and then I used Helmar Zap Dots to prop the image on top.

I hope you enjoyed my scrapbook page! I am really starting to love these 12x12 layouts! I'm even feeling tempted to break out my purple smash book. We'll see..... ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
