Some more blog hop layouts

Yikes, my coming back soon ended up taking two weeks!  Oh well, i'm sure you all aren't too surprised lol.  Ok, so here's a couple more layouts I created for the Noel Mignon crop a couple of weeks ago.

The challenge for this layout was to create a layout incorporating a rainbow.  This was pretty outside of my box, and I ended up having a blast with it!  I used my new Cameo (which I LOVE, btw!) to cut the splash, I backed it with polka dot vellum, and then I used my Heidi Swapp Color Shines to create the rainbow background. 

This layout was for an ombre challenge.  I've always loved the graduated ombre look, but i've never created an ombre layout.  Definitely loved having crop challenges to push me to try new things!  I used my Cameo yet again to cut out the chevron arrow strips, and then I added different shades of blue paint underneath.  Messy but fun!

Hope everyone is doing well and that Spring has finally arrived for you, no matter where you live!  It finally seems to be here now, at least more consistently!
