Serendipity Kits June 'Focus on Photography' & 'Layout' Contests

One of my photos, which I titled "Spring is Here," made it into the final judging stage for the June "Focus on Photography" contest over at Serendipity Kits...very exciting!! This photo was taken at the very end of April on a day we went out to take advantage of some FINALLY nice weather to pick some dandelions and feed the ducks. I love the crop on this pic and the sense of of my favorites from the day. If you'd like, you can see more pics from this day here.

One of my layouts, entitled "roses," also made it into the final judging for the June Layout Contest.

Details on this layout:
Cardstock – Bazzill
Patterned Paper – American Crafts
Glittery Flower Stickers – EK Success
Chipboard – Scenic Route
Font – Albemarle Swash

Journaling/Title Quote:
A life with love will have some thorns, but a life without love will have no...roses.

Comments & Techniques:
I loved the unique color combination of the pinkish-peach on the teal mat and green background. I cut the PP into a curve to compliment the curve of the petals and added glittered flowers along the curve…even the font I chose compliments the theme as it has a ‘viney’ feel.
