New mini notebook featuring entry one documents my paternal relatives

6.5" x 4.5" size notebook type journal is being filled with snapshots taken at a family reunion in 2004

The kit I put together with the vibrant colors seen in the color board further down in the posting:

[#1] I've tried to follow a color palette challenge and sketch design for the 1st entry:

[#1-A] Lisa's challenge is this sketch design=
Lisa's "half" of the TN Time link:

compare to my interpretation: on L page= no bow; butterfly instead of daisy; strip or header has been moved down some; lined paper and it's paper behind it has been subbed with 2 tag stickers with 'tails' to use for journaling; and the date or year has been made super bold with the puffy stickers

on R page= at the top I only used 1 strip of cardstock with flowers on it due to height of cropped photo; snapshot was layered on top of 2 papers; title area was shifted a bit and the tape pieces reduced to a small section just on the right corner

[#1-B] Lori's color board challenge (which I've got 4 of the 5)= peachy orange, mint green, robin egg blue, and bright pinks
Lori's "half" of the TN Time link:

[#2] APTS challenge blog's mid-month April prompt is Anything Goes (there is an optional twist to do 3 of 5 suggestions: tag, vellum, watercolor, die, and/or flower)--but just AG for my layout

Stay tuned to see the 2nd entry using the same mini kit, colors, and sketch!
