A very pink layout (and a green one)

First up, I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who left lovely comments about my sick daughter last week.  The good news was, she was only sick for a day, the rest of the family did stay healthy, and I did get my weekend home alone!

I've got two pages to show you today, first up is quite a departure from my February Counterfeit Kit (but don't worry, counterfeiters, the second one is from the kit).

I've combined two challenges for this page . . .

 . . . an old favourite - Scrapbook Boutique

Theme: "LOVE"
. . . one I've long been stalking but never attempted - White With One

Theme: White + Pink + Hearts

But I probably wouldn't have given them a second thought if it wasn't for this gorgeous inspiration from Wilna at Two Peas in a Bucket:

So let's not waste any more time, here's my page:

and some close ups:

I did the ombre painting on the weekend (when the family was away) then left it to dry.  I've been working on it in bits and pieces since then so it feels like it's taken nearly a week to finish!.

By contrast, this page for Angus came together in less than an hour, thanks to my Counterfeit Kit:

It's no secret that I tend to keep my boy pages pretty simple. With some stickers, washi, wood veneers and pre-cut arrows, I'm really happy with how this page came out!

Thanks everybody for dropping by!
