Pure Joy – for the Page Drafts “Be Bold” challenge and July IAR Challenge

Since I played along with the Paper Stories challenge last month, I couldn’t help but notice that the sketch is by Page Drafts, so I decided to check them out. It just so happens that they have a challenge running and apparently Page Drafts also provides sketches for CSI. How cool is that? 😀

For the Page Drafts challenge, the theme is “Be Bold”…interpreted any way you’d like and there’s a sketch to follow. The small print says you can rotate the sketch, but to stay as close to the sketch as possible. For my take on the challenge, I picked a photo of Christian where he is literally laughing out loud while sitting on the neighbor’s porch. I don’t know what it is about those steps, but he loves them…maybe he just likes that it’s different or that they’re green? Anyway, along with his “living out loud” pic, I went with the bold patterns and bright colors in the Webster’s Pages, Citrus Squeeze collection. Since I’d normally go with a neutral background for such bright prints, I intentionally picked the boldest pattern for my backdrop.

I’m also entering this layout in the I Am Roses challenge. Their requirements are that you use tissue paper or vellum and at least 2 of their products. All 3 of the different flowers on my page are by IAR. 😀 Here’s what I came up with:
