Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #3

Dawn posted another great Color Challenge last weekend and when I first saw it I thought I was going to really struggle with this one!!Then yesterday as I was browsing through the Going Going Gone retirement sale over at Sweet Shoppe Designs I came across a digital kit using that exact color scheme!! Butterfly Kisses by Eva Kipler and Jan Hosford is 50% off right now too!! Cha-ching!! I downloaded the kit, printed out a few digi papers and whipped up this little number using PTI's Mega Mixed Messages stamp set and some Kraft CS....soooo simple! I added some Stampin' Up ribbon and Basic Grey buttons for embellishment.I thought, well hell, while I've got the kit open in Photoshop and I have this adorable photo of my friend Heidi's daughter Sam just screaming to be scrapped....I might as well make a digi layout while I'm at it. This photo of Sam is so stinkin' cute that I really wanted to keep it the focus of attention, so I kept the layout VERY simple with almost no embellishments. One of Sya's digi templates from Stripped #4 and a photo overlay from All Worn Out by Penny Springmann made that easy!! I removed a layer and rotated the template, then had my page done in under 10 minutes!!!
