Scrappy Canary | May "Sweet Treat" Scrapbook Kit




I'm back with another layout share using the May "Sweet Treat" Scrapbook Kit.  I challenged myself to use a pink/red/grey/gold colour palette- colours that I would normally never use together- and I also decided to try a 12x12 page which is not my preferred format.  As well as all that, I was scrapping a photo of my littlest boy!



My colour scheme was derived from this XOXO chipboard piece....



I used a die to create a tab from red paper and gold embossed the date.  



I added a couple of pink and gold labels I had leftover from a previous kit and layered chipboard elements from this month's kit on top. 




My title came from one of the cut-apart cards on one of the patterned papers, and to this I added a gold glitter heart from the kit and sequins from my stash.




Some machine stitching and red ink splats were the final touches.  I don't know that I will rush to revisit this colour scheme but it was fun to step out of my comfort zone for this layout.
