My Two Boys Layout Berry71Bleu February Challenge

I'm truly starting to enjoy creating a layout with a solid black background.  I really love how my embellishments & colors 'pop' on my page!  This is my interpreation for the February challenge going on over at Berry71Bleu.  This month's host is Dana & she picked a beautiful mood board to go along with this month's challenge which is: My Inspiration, My Loves - basically create a project about things or people that inspire you or that you love...simple as that.

My husband took this photo of me getting love from my two boys.  Even though my son doesn't look too happy here--he had just finished giving me a big hug.  Nothing warms my heart more or puts a smile on my face than getting love from my two boys.  My four legged eldest fur child always gives me his unconditional love & my son is at an age where he gives you hugs & kisses 'just because'.

This is when I ask Father Time to slow down a bit--during these wonderful moments...

Here's this months soft & creative mood board.  I love the colors & images used...

I used washi tape in my page again as part of my layering. I have several rolls of washi tape collecting dust in my stash.  I figured I'd clean off the 2 inches of dust & try using them into my work!  :-)

I used several digital images provided by one of our sponsors this month the CAT File Store on my page.  I primarily used thier printables as embellishments & layered them around my photo.

In Photoshop I was able to add one of their digital images 'the cutest' right onto my photo.  Since I don't have a Silhouette or any other compatible die cutting machine--I printed their digital images & used them to enhance my page as embellishments.

The contrast of the embellishments I added to my page against the solid black background adds a splash of color to my layout that I honestly really liked.

The gray tulle seen on my page is attached to a white tag that contains my journaling.  It's stored in a white glassine bag that I tucked behind my photos & most of the embellishments.
