Well Hello There - Scrao Our Stash - Pick Your Side Challenge

Hello and Happy Friday! Are you ready for the weekend? I know I am! We will be celebrating both our boys' birthdays this weekend. The oldest is 21 and the youngest is, I feel old!

I am up on the Scrap Our Stash blog today with my take on the new Pick Your Side Challenge. For this new challenge, we are given a double page sketch and we are to pick a side of it to base our layout off of. There is also an added challenge to go along with the sketch challenge and this month it is to add flowers to your layout. Here's a look at the sketch:

For my layout, I have used the left side of the sketch. For the flower part of the challenge, I stamped a couple of different types of flowers in the same colors as my papers and used a die to cut them out. I then clustered them together.

I used Close To My Heart's - Heart Happy - collection for this layout. I knew I was going to love this collection the minute I saw it! The flower and heart stamps are also from CTMH - Prickly Pear Scrapbooking Stamp and Thin Cuts (Z3338). The title is a mix of Elle's Studio stamps and the block alpha dies from CTMH.

Here are a couple of close ups:

A little about these photos of Ada at nine and a half months old - she had been sitting on her blanket, just playing away and looking cute. The minute I pulled my camera out she got all excited and started kicking her feet like crazy. It was hard to get a photo that wasn't blurry from all of the movement! I just love the photo that looks like she is waving.

Be sure to stop by Scrap Our Stash for more design team inspiration. Have you played along with our new challenges yet? I would love to see your take on them!
