Lulupu BlogHop 2013 & my first layout

Sooooooo excited that I'm finally ready with a few layouts to share. So, what better way to connect with fellow scrapbookers than joining a bloghop and a few challenges.

Lulupu has a very generous stash of scrappy yummies to giveaway. Read all about it here and also join the Lulupu BlogHop 2013 to see the amazing creations by their DT. This month Lulupu is running a recipe challenge. For my layout, I chose from the Lulupu Recipe Challenge #22: Image (Stamp), Diecut and embellishment (ribbon, brad)

There is so much inspiration available on the  net, this has become my fav past time these days and came across this really lovely Mood Board by Zaneta Glowa aka Zanka at Scrap Around The World. The first thing that struck me about this picture is the soft, delicate look and pastel shades. The more I looked at it, more ideas popped into my head - vintage frames, script stamps, flowers, emerald..... but I didnt have any of these in my stash so I stuck with my first thoughts.

The inspiration for the layout came from the AAB-December 1 Sketch Challenge over at Boy Meets Girl

Technically, this isnt my first layout - its my 4th but well its the first Im sharing on my blog. Armed with all the inspiration from the net, I dug through my stash and coudnt find any soft pastel coloured background paper! Why not create some yourself :)) 

There is no pattern paper used at all in this layout. The background was created on a peach color DCWV cardstock using acrylic paints and stamps.

I also stenciled a mirror image of the heart shape die-cut onto the top right corner.Then for layering my photograph, transparency sheets were painted using some old alphabet cutouts as stencils. I sewed them onto the page as I didn't want the glue to show through the clear sheets. The ribbons came from gift hampers I received for my baby boy. Finally, some journaling and the title.

Entering this layout into the following challenges:
