{Scrap Factor Week Two}

Thank you so much to anyone who may have voted for me in Week 1. Here is my full size layout from Week 1.

The theme was to be inspired by a colour palette. I started off by flicking through my stack of 'to scrap' photos to see if anything matched - luckily I found this picture of my inlaws at a recent wedding taken in the park, both kindly wearing coordinated purples! Once the photo was sorted I matched papers to colour palette. I'm using a lot of plain cardstock in my layouts lately, for matting, layering elements and printing elements out. Once I pulled these altogether I looked at the hybrid elements. I knew I wanted to include some journalling and I have these amazing labels from two peas called swanky labels. You get some great sizes including this really large size which is great for getting a load of journalling crammed in. To pull in the green element from the colour palette I misted (new fave technique!!) including misting over the frame designed by SJ. The frame was in greyscale so the hint of sparkle really lifted it - plus with misting you can change the printable to match your layout colour scheme!The journalling reads : -These two people have been in my life for almost 10 years now. They have taught me a lot and I am very thankful for their love,support & understanding over these years. In a few short months they will officially be my mother in law and father in law. I hope they see me as a daughter .

Supplies used: Vanilla Cardstock, Papers My little shoebox & American Crafts, Swanky Labels (two peas download), Frame (Little Musings) and Family card (UKS Monthly download), Thickers and sassfrass letter stickers, Prima bling, Maya Road Lime mist, Martha Stewart Punches

I am very excited for the Week 2 voting which is now open. Take a look over at UkScrappers, where you can also play along with the weekly themes . & here is a sneaky peak of my layout in gallery right now!!

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter, I sure did and will be back soon with some pics of what me and boys got up too.

Thanks Again xxx
