Colorful Creations + Scrap Africa + C'est Magnifique

Yes, it's a mouthful!!!  I found this GREAT sketch at C'est Magnifique blog for their December Sketch challenge and I used it for the Color Palette event at Colorful Creations.  The new Scrap Africa challenge is up as well and FILMSTRIP is the main focus of this challenge, and when I saw the sketch I knew I could easily incorporate the filmstrips in my layout.  Here is a look at what I created . . .

Products:  MME, Silhouette Cameo, Studio Calico, Bazzill, Hot off the Press, StazOn
Here is the color palette that was given for the challenge at Colorful Creations . . .

And here are a few close-up's . . .

I'm really am loving the end result of this layout!  Perfect to capture this memory for my daughter and her family!

I want to take a moment and thank all of you for your kind e-mails and messages on the move ahead.  We are all packed and most of the final arrangements has been done.  Leaving Saudi Arabia requires quite a bit of paper work, and all of this is taken care of and we have our final exits in hand.  The cargo company will pick up the boxes on the 29th and we will get on the plane heading for South Africa January 1st.  Thank you for all the well wishes, hugs and thoughts from all of you!  I cherish them all!

Wishing you all a great day!!
