Blueberries Aren't Blue - Elle's Studio

Hey there!

Ever think to yourself, 'how can that possibly be?'  Well, my mom and I had a recent discussion after getting purple blueberry ice cream.  We both know that blueberries can be blue, but mostly they are purple.  So, we decided they shouldn't be called blueberries.  Maybe purple berries!  Who came up with the work pajamas?  Or scrumptious?  I could go on.  It would take all day and with all the amazing goodies in the April Kit and add-ons, we don't have time for that, do we?!

I knew I wanted to create a play on colors with the blue and purple.  So I made sure to layer both colors every time I used them.  Behind the Large Jane Alphas, around the entire layout as a base and under the Mom Heart Cut file.  

About the Mom Heart cut file... I only wanted to use the heart part of the file. So, I released the compound path and only used the outer part of the heart.  Releasing it from the text on the inside.  I cut the heart 3 times, decreasing in size by 1/4 of an inch each time.  

Along with the blue and purple, I added the beautiful raspberry color that is throughout the April kit.  The Butterfly and Flowers Puffy Stickers had the cutest florals so I had to add them to the date clump at the bottom of my page.  Adding this, lead me to adding the 3x4 floral tag from the April Kit.

I trimmed down the floral tag and tucked it in behind my photo.  Then, I layered with the Days of the Week Phrase sentiments for a little more detail for my story.  Not only does my title depict a story, but I added journaling to the top left corner of the layout to remember the moment for years to come.
