Tropical Continental

at least mine is :)

Studio Calico July kit - Continental - is LIVE! As soon as I opened that box, I know I'm in love. Corny, I know. But really. I think these layouts are my favorite EVER, so far! :)

I got myself La Salle and Magellan add ons and am still having a blast creating with them all!

ILY

ILY, my pretty girl.

Misted the alphas with two shades of yellow. Lemon and Cream Mist.

Droplets of mist - Cotton Candy Metallic and Turquoise.

Khai

Khai Island. I miss that place. one of these days, I'm gonna post larger photos of those on this layout. That place is beautiful, in every single way. Carla and I, we're gonna go there for fun, someday. *grins*

Red Baker's Twine. I don't know what'll happen if I run out of them. Pay no attention to off-balanced loopy bows.

Lots of mist here. I wanted to re-create the 'sandy island' look and I'm very happy with how it turned out :) I used Fern Green, Cream, Hydrangea and Turquoise.

priceless

Now this one, is inspired by a layout in Lisa Dickinson's ebook! Do you have it? It's very inspiring and you really wanna grab a copy!

Yes, I used Turquoise *again* and Lemon for the masked and misted frame. Beautiful, if I may say so.

For the 'insides' I used Cream and Bubblegum. And a bit of Bumpy Road love as well.

So there, my three most loved layouts for now. Very tropical, don't you think so? and very misty as well. And I'm foolishly infatuated with Turquoise as you can see :) Let's hope the other colors won't throw a tantrum. Heh.

Speaking of mist, Studio Calico has all five new colors in stock now. I got mine, you might wanna run there before they run out. With names like Seafoam Green and Pink Lemonade, the girl in me can't resist.

I just cannot help coming back to your blog for inspiration, I just love how you do the droplets of colour, I am going to buy all the colours you have mentioned when the next kit comes. Also you mentioned you spritzed the alphas, was just wondering what colour they were underneath to start with. I love that gorgeous twine and just love how you find ways to use it, gee I wish I could just pop into your head for 1/2 hour. lol Melxxx
