Spice Spice Baby

I am participating in the CTMH Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Spice of Life. You could do a project with spicy colours, a recipe or however you interpret it.

As soon as I read the challenge, this title and layout came to my mind immediately. No joke...that is how my mind works. The only problem was that my pregnancy photos were buried in one of the 25 boxes/totes left in my living room to go through from the flood 2 years ago.

So, a big thank you goes out to Aiden, Amy's boyfriend. Trevor was going to go through the boxes for me, but life got in the way. Amy messed up her back at the trampoline park and couldn't lift the boxes. I can't do anything because of my concussion. So, Aiden happily came over and helped me out.

We found the photos in the last box we went through...again no joke, but we re-organized the boxes and my living room looks a lot better now. More space and not so junky looking.

I used Close to My Heart's Chalk It Up Paper Packet with CTMH White Daisy, Black and Lagoon cardstocks.

To embellish the layout, I used the following CTMH products: Chalk It Up Assortment, Dot Embossing Folder, Black Sparkles, Art Philosophy for the flowers & title and Artbooking for the butterfly & recipe card. I also used Stampin' Up's Spritz Tool with my Black Copic Marker - 100.

I used CTMH's Brushed Scrapbooking Workshop (butterfly & "joy"), Confetti Wishes Scrapbooking Workshop (middle of flower) and Chalk It Up Scrapbooking Workshop (middle of flower) stamp sets with CTMH Black ink.
