SRM Stickers and Lily Bee

Lily Bee recently came out with the cutest, happiest collection for summer called "Hello Sunshine."

I looked at the first artwork released by fabulous scrappers like Stephanie Howell and LOVED what she did with it but wondered if I'd be able to work with the bright blues, red and yellow. I decided to order some and find out and then used it on this page for SRM.

Our theme for this month at SRM Stickers was "Celebrate Life," which could lead to many options- of course you think about Pink and cancer and things like that, a very important cause for all of us, especially those of us who have been touched so many times by family members and friends with the disease. You could also scrap about birthdays and other celebrations. I chose to scrap about my family and titled my page, "Celebrate love, celebrate life, celebrate family."

I love to do titles that catch your eye and think that the big title on this page does just that with the mixed alphas (LOVE the big red ones by Pink Paislee and of course I love my Thickers). I also really like to handcut elements from my patterned paper, which I did with the blue and the red papers here (check the right side of the layout). And, I think I did justice to those cute Lily Bee papers ♥ ♥ ♥

I liked the look of the black and white picture with ALL of that color. The black houndstooth tape on the left is from Pink Paislee. 

UPDATE: I had to remove the full image because this page will be in an upcoming issue of Scrapbook Trends. 

Doesn't the blue SRM "celebrate" go so perfectly with these papers? The swirly on the right is also an SRM Sticker, as is the blue journal spot.I also really liked the look of the SRM Sticker right on top of those cute Pink Paislee red chipboard alphas. 

Oh, and it wasn't at all intentional but do you see the visual triangles in each color- the red, the blue and the yellow, how there is an element here and then another there? Totally not planned but I like the effect.

Have a great day!

p.s. WOOHOO!!! This is up as one of the Friday Faves on the Lily Bee blog today: 
and it's in the top 5 views/liked/bookmarked at 2 Peas as well. Thank you all so much♥

i LOVE this layout Becky and I'm thinking it is one of my FAVES that I've seen with this line! I agree those colors could be tricky but you knocked it out of the park! Beautiful!

Yeah - I'm with you. I think the Lily Bee papers are stunning and I love what I've seen others do with them, but I'm just not sure I could ever make them work for myself. But you certainly don't have to worry about that because this layout is just stunning. I do love that long title with all the different alphas, and what a beautiful photo too. Awesome work :-)
