Pastel Rainbow was a design trend that inspired this page for the Get It Scrapped creative team blog contributions this month. I had to use stars for Stella and the template had those "cosmic rays" that I used to place my pastel rainbow in this tribute page to my Mom. Thinking of her especially since her birthday month was October.
I had also chosen to do the "inspired by" challenge since those are my favorites. This month it was Corrie Jones. I'm including here a layout that was published and another that was not, both inspired by Corrie. There are good templates of Corrie's designs available for members at Get It Scrapped as you may recall from my Gram and Her Sushi Roll page. I encourage you to consider membership as there is a lot of value and fun at the site.

I had a lot of fun with these. As you can see, I did a mix of digi and paper layouts. I like digi but it's not stopped my love of getting "down and dirty" with my paper crafting supplies. I may have a couple of both layouts going at once since I like to work in small segments and come back to my project. I do submit my layouts to the critique page at Get It Scrapped and get helpful suggestions. In fact, I think the changes I made to the layout I featured in my last post are a nice improvement. I am happy with the suggestions I got. That extra orange helps move your eye down the diagonal flow.
Hope you are getting a chance to listen to some of the episodes of the Digiscrap Geek Podcast. The latest episode should be up in a couple of days. We are discussing trends. You'll note the concrete /texture with flowers and doily from the Vinnie Pearce kit I used with the Fiddle-Dee-Dee template.
