Bright coloured cardstock and hexagons...

I love the recent hexagon trend in scrapbooking, but I haven't tried used hexagons in my own layouts.  A while back I bought a Couture Creations hexagon cutting die (with a prize voucher from Scrapbook Fantasies) and until this week I hadn't tried it out.

This layout was inspired by Sketch #133 from Sketches in Thyme.  I turned the sketch 90º right and used only one photograph:

What I did:
Confession time:  I actually started creating this layout on grey cardstock, but when it was almost done, I hated it...  so I pulled it apart, fussy cut around the block of hexagons and photograph, and mounted that bit on new cardstock.
I used some old alphabet stickers on some of the hexagons to carry across the rambling text theme of the wall in the photograph. 

Bazzill Basics cardstock
Three Bugs in a Rug Coco - Polka Dot patterned paper
Couture Creations Honeycomb Strip cutting die
Heidi Swapp Ghost Shapes pink flowers
Alphabet stickers

While I had the Cuttlebug out, and a pile of brown paper scraps, I cut a few extra strips and played around with them.  I made another layout just because I love fussy cutting and I love finding a way to use the scraps on my desk, and because Scrapbook Fantasies has a challenge to create a layout using fluro colours:

Warning - it's a bit bright...
