MCT ~ Designer's Challenge

Good morning! Today starts a new Designer's Challenge over at My Creative Time. Emma and the design team will being using a photo for our inspiration.  You can use the water, boat, color palette or all of the above as inspiration. Click here for all the details and we so hope you play along with us!
Obviously you can tell I used the color pallet because there is no plane in the inspiration picture! LOL! But I was inspired by the picture and the boat. You see, our family will be going on vacation this year to a beach and it will be our sons first plane ride. I figure I will be taking pictures or us with him on the plane and this photo totally inspired me of that day. I really can't wait for our vacation especially since I have been starring at this breath taking picture! Sigh
I chose to do a smash kind of layout. I tend to want to add everything but the kitchen sink to my creations and I really loved these colors! My plan is to add any extra pictures and scanning our boarding passes into the Scalloped Stitched Envelope Die.  The I am so excited because I actually have a layout done before an event instead of years behind! Whoo Hoo!

Materials Used:
Happy Thoughts
Paper ~ PTI, Echo Park and some from my stash
Ink ~ Versa Fine and Archival

That is it for me ~ hope you all can join us in the fun challenge!
Have a great day!


  1. Kimberly this turned out so cute. I love your take on the inspiration. My oldest just left for my parents and this was her first plane ride. I have so many pictures of her and boy this is great idea and inspiration. AJ

  2. Super Smash LO...and you're so have to take a pic of his first plane ride!!

  3. Your smash card project is AMAZING! I love the fun 3d clouds, camera and plane! It's filled with so many fun details and how fun to have it done ahead of time! Yeah!! I have always wanted to do that but never seem to have my ducks in a row, lol! My pages are usually done 2-3 yrs later! I think that might be something I may have to work on, hah?!
    What a fun inspirational photo and challenge! I am crossing my fingers to have time to play! Enjoy your trip my friend and take pictures! I am sure little Ryan will have a blast! I am looking forward to our trip in Oct...can't come fast enough!
