Friday, January 25, 2013 Anupama Choudary

Hi there, this is Anupama Choudary all the way from India with my first DT layout for Berry71Bleu. I want to thank Marivic for giving me this wonderful chance to design with her beautiful tags. 

The January challenge - Celebrate me - couldn't have come at a more opportune moment for me as I approach a landmark birthday next month and embrace my 'One Little Word' for 2013 - Believe.

This page came together effortlessly even though this is my first time working with a tag and this color palette! Looks like my OLW is already making magic happen :) 

Working with our sponsor 13 arts "Frosted Life" collection of papers was a pleasure and I hope that Aida forgives me for tearing them up !

I even printed my picture on one of the floral papers for the subtle pattern to show through.

I loved adding 'strings' of liquid pearls randomly as a finishing touch!
There are still 6 days before the challenge closes.
