Beats by Dr. Dre Layout {Purple Pumpkin} Echo Park





A new month is upon us & that means a new sketch is up at Purple Pumpkin HERE.  Head on over to check out the awesome spin on it from the Design Team - they did a stunning job with it this month.  We choose the best layout each month & feature the top 3.  You DO NOT have to use Purple Pumpkin stash on your layout although of course we ♥ it if you do :)


I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this layout!  I did this one evening when I was constantly disturbed so it happened in about FOUR different installments.  BUT I think it turned out great!  SO maybe there's something to be said for creating in itty little bits - have HAD to do that lately!!


Just loving that DYMO TAPE & all those happy, spotty Purple Pumpkin buttons! Yes, this page brings a smile to my face, just like that gorgeous girl who is happiest with her headphones on, at the age of 12!  Well I guess it must be the influence of 3 teenage siblings...


Crazy about that background.  I used mist - a TINY drop in the cap of my water jar.  Diluted with various amounts of water on a brush.  I am IN LOVE with water-colour backgrounds & finally I did one of my own!  Thank you KIM PRICE for your never-ending, awesome stream of drop-dead gorgeous layouts.  


Even my 'not too bothered' teenage son was impressed!  "It's the white" he said.  Good thing too, seeing as I have 35 sheets of the stuff in my stash!!  I ran out once & have never recovered :)  Before I forget - the sketch - right click girls, you know you want to!

Beautiful Helen...love your background and the super mix of papers and accents! Sometimes it helps to have interruptions, because when you get back to your desk, then one normally looks at the page with new eyes!!! ;-)

Loving the water color background. I decided that beats must mean headphones there. I was confused for a bit...We call them ear buds too....

I think it's awesome we have different words for things!!!
