The moment I opened my Happy Day kit, I knew the first layout I wanted to make would be on this gorgeous deep cornflower blue paper! I just adore that shade so much.
I'll admit that I was in two minds about going as mad as I did on this one... part of you wants to be free and experiment, but the other part wants to produce something 'good' that people will like! It's sometimes tempting to play it safe.
Not very much safe about this one, ha ha! But I love the end result. And I love the story it tells of the special bond between Kitty and her Dad.
This panel started with the idea that I would 'layer up some papers and distress them' - I love layouts where there's lots of areas of detail and interest to look at. And aren't they often the most fun ones to make too?
