I have really been enjoying working with my November Cocoa Daisy kit. It had a bit of a celestial theme with a few of the papers and the fun embellishments. It reminded me that I had some photos of my nephews sleeping and sprawled out on my Mom’s living room floor when they were visiting last March.
I printed the photos and got to work.
This layout comes almost entirely from my November Cocoa Daisy kit. I added some washi tape, a journaling card and some black Thickers from my stash.
I knew that blue astronomy paper would be my background. At first glance, looking through the kit, I was less than thrilled with these Basic Grey papers from the Persimmon line. Of the whole line, they were the two I liked least. But upon a second look and pairing up my photos, I realized these prints sort of compliment the crazy print on the sheets in the photo. So I just went with it!
I really loved the fun wood veneer elements included in the kit. I took advantage of that dark area in my photo to add the circle embellishments. The grey chipboard alphabet came in the kit and I just added in a contrasting font for the rest of my title. I added a couple of spots of washi tape to bring some black into the right side of my layout. I actually used the We R Memory Keepers washi tape sheets here. I think I’ll do a review of this product soon too. Lots of fun things you can do with the sheets.
My Cocoa Daisy subscription will be up in another month. I’m trying to decide if I should extend it, find a new kit or do away with it all together. I’ve been having fun working with products I didn’t select myself. I think I want to continue with a kit of some sort, but I’m going to start exploring other options. I’ll let you know what I end up with.
Thanks for stopping by today!
