“Inspired By” with Neela Nalam

Inspiration can come from everywhere, but we especially love being inspired by the awesome projects created by our design team each month in the Design Team Inspiration gallery posts. Today, Neela Nalam was inspired by fellow teammate Susan Brochu, and we love how she made her page her own! Let’s take a look:
It’s Neela here, and this month I was very inspired by Susan Brochu’s “Good Eats” layout with the little envelope in the corner of the layout and the photos spilling out of it:

I loved the original idea so much and I am glad to have the opportunity to scrap lift this awesome layout!
For my layout, I changed up the size to be 9″ x 12″ instead of 12″ x 12″ and I to punched all of my photos into two inch circles. Here is my layout:

I decided to document the month of March so far. Not much of it has gone by, but a lot is happening. So it was fun to put all the details in this layout. I used the March Labels as little journaling tags for each of the photos. I wanted the layout to be an explosion of color and the Rainbow Acrylic was perfect for that. The labels and the Little Acrylic Hearts helped spread the color across the layout too.

I also punched a few butterflies from the 3″ x 4″ rainbow striped journaling tag and added them to the layout, and sprinkled Enamel Dots for some texture and color. I added a wood veneer bunny because we have these brown bunnies running around in our backyard at this time. I balanced it with two more Wood Weneer Icons.

The Big Moment Phrase Stickers were perfect for this spread: both the colors and the phrases. I added them alongside the photos as they helped me convey my message perfectly.

Thank you Susan for the wonderful inspiration!
