Blossom CTMH Paper Pack Focus Blog Hop

If your arriving from Melissa Davids' Blog then your on the right track! Blossom is the paper pack we're using this month for our hop. It's got beautiful spring-like colors that are so yummy you could just eat them!

Again, I'm using Studio J for my creation. I changed the color of one of the B&T papers because you can do that in Studio J! I thought the Smoothie was a better color for my photos than the original Sunset. I also adjusted the color intensity to be a little lighter. The original layout had 3 photos with a portrait orientation. I liked the way the paper strip lined up on the pages so I didn't want to turn the right page. I made the 2 photos into 1 photo and it's so easy to do! Just change the size in the photo box and you're good to go! But, of course, I needed more than 2 photos to tell the story...I just love how Madalyn used the bottom of her shirt to store the little blossoms that she was picking. So, I added a small photo spot and rotated it just a smidge to fill in the area where the fence was looming large in the first photo. But, none of the pictures I had used showed her pretty, I added another small photo to the left page. Voila! Cute layout in just a few, short minutes!

If you'd like to try scrapbooking the Studio J way, then, Click Here.  Or, if you'd like to try your hand with the paper, then, Go Here! I'd love to have you shop with me for all your Close To My Heart purchases!

Now, hop on over to Aggie Peter's Blog  to see what she's be up to!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you here again, soon!
