Traveler's Inspiration Challenge {4}

Hello everyone! Sorry I didn't post yesterday, we decided to start back to school shopping! We went yesterday to get all the school supplies! I started shopping for my son's school supplies, and was almost finished, when my daughter says, Momma your getting 2nd grade, Chace is going to third! :) I knew that, but trying to get two kids school supplies at the same time, and they are both wanting you to do theirs first, I guess it slipped my mind! :) So after putting all the supplies back, I had to start over! :) Then my son started football practice yesterday, and my husband is helping coach, so he went with him, and I got to do Tina (aka TravelingMama's) Traveler's Inspiration Challenge. I have gotten to play in all of them so far, and I am glad because it has gotten me motivated to do some layouts again! Thanks Tina! The first challenge I had a card, here, but the other two I did a layout, here and here. This challenge I made a 8.5 X 11 layout first, then with the scraps, I made a card too! The inspiration picture is from the talented Savitri. I loved this picture and all the amazing colors in it, so that is where the inspiration came to me! I love this picture in the layout, my kids look like little models or something! :) The picture really just shows how much they love each other! That's where I got the title for the page, "Blessed". I am truly Blessed by them! :) I wanted the orangey background paper to look like the stucco wall, so I wadded my paper up and then smoothed it out and rubbed VersaMark watermark over it, and added some black like the hardware in the picture and of course the pop of red (my favorite part), and they had blue clothes on , but I added another little pop of blue too, and stitched some ribbon! And for the card I just used some scraps, with the same color scheme! So here they are! Supplies:

Paper-My Mind's Eye, white, black, & red cs
Stamp- Stampabilities-Polka Dot Background, Target $ spot-alphabet stamp
