I Love Hello Sunshine Head to Toes!!

PS: The design team information is in the previous post (thanks to Jon) in case you're looking for it.

I will admit that I am not an amazing scrapbooker. Most of my layouts are average to mediocre. But, once in a while, I get lucky. I love this layout. Don't Jack's baby toes look so cute! I have to thank Tami Comstock for that photo.

In case you were wondering, the blackboard flowers came from the Honey Pie Blackboard shapes. The letters for "head to" are from the Get Happy shapes and "Toes" is from the Vintage Mix alphabet. All the journaling and titling cards are from the Hello Sunshine paper pad along with the photo mat which I cut off the original border and added one from another page. The Get Happy ribbon works great with this line, so I used it through the Buck Naked chipboard heart that I covered with the matching die cut. Put all that on the backside of Hula Hoop and you're done.

I think this is adorable. I can't find Hello Sunshine at my LSS but I found it online. I can't wait to play with it!

Cute!!! I wasn't a good scrapper when my kids were babies and wish I had pics like this!!

I'm working with this line right now and love the colors. I think the green is my favorite!!!

Awesome layout Julie! The blackboard chip elements are totally stunning. Very nice blending of supplies from Cosmo lines!

Couldn't you just smooch those sweet little toes?? Its a neat feeling to look at your work and say "WOW I actually like what I've done here" It's a rare occasion in my scrappy little corner of the world. But you should be very proud of this page. Everything works so perfectly together..but then again, with a photo as adorable as that, how could you go wrong?

Great layout, Julie! I just picked up those blackboard chips today!

I can never say what my final opinion of a LO is going to be... sometimes when I'm done, I think it's not so great but then later realize I like it a lot... other times, I am in love with it when I finish and like it less and less as time goes by. *shrug*

Gorgeous! Just got my 'Hello Sunshine' yesterday ... will be playing this weekend. I never know how a LO will turn out - or whether I'll like it ... difficult to go wrong with cosmo tho'

There is just something about tiny baby toes and fingers that is so sweet and darling - I luv this photo. I have not seen this paper yet, must find some! I like the alpha as well, that is right up my alley. I'm alreayd a huge fan of the blackboard books. LOVE those.

I need to run out (to an online store) right now and get me some Hello Sunshine!!! I love this!

Chris said...

Totally adorable! I have yet to see the Hello Sunshine collection anywhere (heck, I can only find parts of Storytime, Love Notes, Souvenir and Wanted in the store).

And love the blackboard -- totally need to get me some of that!

I love bright colors and Hello Sunshine is one of my fave lines ever of CC! You did an awesome job with it - love all the blackboard. Wish my LSS had had more of it in today.

The photo is as precious as can be!

Ohhhh!! this is beautiful!!! I just recently gave the blackboard shapes and try and I LOVE THEM!!!! I used them with the co-ordinating die-cuts and loved the results!!

Susan Goetter said...

I must admit that the first thing that caught my eye was that adorable photo! I love what you've created! The red and green are so perfect together...I haven't seen this line yet...but I'm going to start looking...cause it is so cute...and I just happen to have some photos that would be perfect for it!!!

This is so cute Julie! Love the photo. I may have to try something similar since I just got one of those baby things myself (born June 6th). I also think I may be getting Hello Sunshine in an upcoming kit from My Creative Scrapbook. Yippee - thanks for the idea.
