10 Years Soulmates
(7 Dots Studio, Lindy's Stamp Gang & Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo Challenges)

I took some me time this weekend and decided to create just for me!  In all my DT requirements and deadlines, it's sometimes hard to be able to scrapbook just for the sheer joy of it.  Whenever I can, I try to play along with amazing challenges that have caught my eye.  Well, this time around, I was able to combine 3, each one as fabulous as the next!  INSPIRATION GALORE!!

A couple months ago, I saw this gorgeous new collection from 7 Dots Studio called Cotton Candy and it was love at first sight.  So I ordered it and hadn't had the chance to play with it until now.  The February 7 Dots Studio challenge was an easy one for me as 'LOVE' just happens to be my favorite scrapbooking theme.  I can never get enough of showcasing the love that Yves and I share! Other 7 Dots Studio products used include several stamps and chipboard.

Next on my list of inspirational challenges is the Lindy's Stamp Gang March Color Challenge. It is my first time playing along as my Lindy's stash collection is still growing.  To be frank, I only own 12 Lindy's sprays so far, but I love them so much that I plan on getting more! I just happened to have 4 that matched this pretty palette: Starbursts Wild Honeysuckle Coral, Starbursts Cape Cod Coral, Flat Fabios Kissin' Kenickie Coral and Flat Fabios T-bird Turquoise. I realize that my layout tends to be more on the orange side, but I did spray on all of my coral hues to try to tone it down a little,
and you can clearly see some bits of beautiful turquoise here and there! 

And last, but certainly not least, I decided to have a go at the Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo March challenge which was to use NUMBERS on a project.  Because of my love-theme, I opted to add a large 10 to document 10 years of being soulmates.  I also used a number stamp here and there on the background.

I am sure that you will agree that these 3 challenges proved to be the perfect inspiration combo!

Now let's take a closer look at my page:

I used some of the largest alphas in my stash to create the number 10.  I have a little confession to make... it is actually an 'i' and 'o', but who would have ever thought, uh?  They were also originally a bright shade of pink so I painted them brown and added some microbeads on them with dabs of white paint.

I mixed matched different turquoise, teal and peachy orange flowers to create my cluster, sprinkled with more microbeads!

You can see here stamped numbers on my background as well as numbers on a 7 Dots Studio die cut shape.

I was very pleased with the soft round splatters created with my Lindy's sprays.

10 years ago, my soul found its mate... and my happiness knows no bounds!
