The Studio Challenge–May Mood Board

How Cute! – a layout for The Studio Challenges


Start: We were given this Mood Board for the May challenge:

May 16 mood board 
Style: What caught my eye from the mood board was the gorgeous pink bloom, the glitz of the gold and “YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE”.  I paired a large floral paper with a smaller triangle print for the basis of my page.  I used blue for an offset mat along with two different transparencies that also had triangles – as a subtle repetition.  You will notice the placement of the elements also forms a strong triangle on the page.

I added gold with stitching and buttons and glittered hearts.  I had been saving the Studio Calico “You Make Me Happy” card because a gold block covered the line where the “Happy” should be.  At least, I assumed that was what was there, but could not be sure.  Luckily it was, and instead of scratching it clean, I left a bit of the gold on it.  The other accents are cut or punched from tags which I had left over from another layout.  I will add a little sappy journaling in that blue spot to the right of the face.  That face – how cute!!

That large rub-on has been in my stash – for-ev-er!!  It is by Karen Foster and I am happy to say that it rubbed on like it was brand new.
Stash: Most of this was from my May Counterfeit Kit.


  1. I loveeeeeeeeee this! LOVING that photo and the floral background!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Isn't it great when something old works perfectly? I think the older rub-ons were made better than the ones today. Love all the color on this page and that cute photo too!

  3. Loving your layout. That floral paper is wonderful and I think you chose wonderful elements from the mood board.

  4. Love this! The floral background paper is gorgeous!
