live everyday... 37

Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of my dear daughter Angie that I took while we were hiking around Torrey Pines State Park located in Southern California a few weeks ago. I combined beautiful patterned papers from the Pion design Shoreline Treasures collection:
I took on the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #5 which is all about Distress Watercoloring and created the light blue layered blossoms using Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Markers, Tim Holtz Watercolor paper, Heartfelt Creations stamps and coordinating Spellbinders Paper Arts dies. I also used the Distress Watercolor technique to color the Tim Holtz Blueprint Seashell: 
I wanted to join along with the Sunday Stamper challenge which is to create a project featuring WOOD and stamps, so I found a neat piece of wood in a bag of pot-pourri in my stash and put it to good use as a banner topper ;)
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with Let's Get Sketchy Week 4 sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting!
Be Sweet ;)

Mona...your layout is simply elegant and stunning. I love all of your layers of collaged papers. The machine stitching adds that special little touch that you do so well. I love your dimensional flowers, too. They give this such a sweet feminine quality. Your colored sea shell in the center really pulls the seascape picture into your layout beautifully.
