Vacation Layout Number 2

   I am going to have to eventually stop numbering these layouts as I am still getting pictures sent to me from others. I know that when they send me a picture they are thinking it is layout worthy. This may be quite the volume.
  This is one of 2 pictures that Ben took that absolutely were my favorites of all vacation. With all the great cameras there these were both taken with his iphone. I was so lucky to be able to watch the sunrise with dear Zade as he is  a morning kinda baby. And I am so very happy to have a layout to help me remember those special times.
   I was inspired by the challenge at Kraft+ mustard explosion. Since yellow is my favorite color and this is my favorite vacation picture I just had to go for it. I love to see all the amazing entries in their challenges. The talent that is there is very inspirational. I can not begin to create at that level, but I always find that I step way outside my box when I attempt the challenges. So though mine are a hot mess, I am learning and growing and ultimately I have a layout that I like.
  I am alsogoing to enter this at Jo's Scrap Shack. for Fun-Day Friday challenge. This is a new blog for me a nd I look forward to following along.
  Here is the inspiration piece 

Isn't this a wonderful picture. I really enjoyed doing this layout though it is definitely the product of many mistakes but ultimately it achieves  my goal:  to showcase this wonderful picture. I really love the sunburst and will use that method again for sure. Also learned that I have much to learn when stenciling on a layout. But I am armed with some youtubes and ready to try again another time. And found that if the paint drops just are not right you can always smear them everywhere while trying to clean up the mess.
Thank you for the challenge and inspiring me to stretch and learn.
 I hope that your day is full of inspiring moments.
