The Paper Variety Challenge and The Color Combo Galore#189

Hi my blogger friends!!  I would like to show you these two pages that I made, The first one is for The Paper Variety Challenge.   This week is a Polka Dot Challenge, it was very easy for me because I Love Polka Dots. In my page I used a polka dot Prima Paper to make the frame and gave it little accents to my page. I took this lovely picture of my daughter Paola that was my inspiration to create this page. I used My April Limited Edition from My Creative Scrapbook, so Beautiful this kit.

 Our challenge this week is Polka-dots! Click here for all the details, see the great DT examples .......

More details of my page.......

Prima- Flowers and swirls
I cut my butterflies from a Prima Paper.

This is my second page that I made for the Color Combo Galore #189 and for  Frosted Design- Sketch Challenge #13, I combined both challenges. I love this Graphic 45 line...Once Upon a Springtime Collection are the perfect  paper for this color challenge.   I had these lovely photos of my niece Camila, she was looking for Easter eggs. I sprayed  SHIMMER on the flowers and some areas but the effect is not seen in the photos.
