Gorgeous Pastels with Laurie Schmidlin

Good morning!  It's my turn to share my take on this month's Focus - a lovely and inspirational photo!  Here's the photo Lea chose for us...
  Jan Focus
 Isn't this photo beautiful?  Because I live in Montana, and cold weather lasts way longer than I'd like, I decided to focus on other aspects of this photo than the obvious snow theme.  :-)
GD You Are My Song
For my first card, I used the banner in the photo above as my inspiration!  I also used a yellow background (like the photo).  I combined lots of colors and textures (all products are from Glitz's Dance in Sunshine and Vintage Blue collections).
GD Sweet
For my second card, I used the inspiration photo as a sketch.  I combined several papers (all from the Beautiful Dreamer and Vintage Blue collections), a Whatnot, a Glitzer, and an Epoxy Word sticker!
Thanks so much for joining me here today!  ~Laurie
