Fiesta Moments 2015

It was fun actually scrapbooking this past weekend.  I have so many pictures to scrapbook and I feel like I'm so behind. 

My Creative Sketches has a monthly sketch that helps me when I'm having a creative block. 

Here's the sketch:

Here's my take on it:

LOVE all the paper layers.  I was browsing through this website's DT and I just love Kris Berc's style.  Check out her blog HERE.  I love how she has only one or two photos but tons of layers of paper.  Using patterned paper scares me.  But I remember I took a class years ago and the instructor's tip was to treat patterned paper as if it's a solid.  Look at the color and density of the design versus just thinking of it as patterned paper.  Also, if you use papers from the same kit, they are designed to work together. 

At first I wanted to grab all the orange and blue paper I could find, but I didn't have much orange and the orange I had didn't feel right.  So I went to blue.  I have a paper pad that I received for my birthday a few years ago.  The blue was just right.  Once I selected that sheet, the rest just fell into place. 

The man/woman embellishment and heart border came from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.

I hope you like it as much as I do!
