Bright Future – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

Ready for something new and twice the chances to win a $20 gc to the Creative Embellishments store? Well, CE is ringing in the New Year with just that! Not only are they having a January blog challenge, but they’ve added a wonderful new facebook challenge too! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll share details on how to enter the facebook challenge towards ย the end of this post.

For the Creative Embellishments January Blog Challenge, there is an inspiration image and the twist is this topic: wishes, hopes and dreams for 2014. Link up your project (new as of Jan 1, 2014) to the January InLinkz widget on the CE blog to enter! ๐Ÿ˜€ Here’s the inspiration image for Jan:

For my example, I chose a photo of 2 of my children taken on the day I pulled them out of the local brick and mortar school after enrolling them into an online cyber school. This was done primarily to improve the quality of their education as well as removing them from an undesirable environment at school. My take on the challenge reflects my dream for a brighter future for my children. ๐Ÿ˜€ I was also inspired by the Monday Mojo sketch at Flying Unicorn. Here’s what I came up with (the background is actually a deep purple, but photographed as blue):
