Yesterday was a new reveal over at Use Your Words, where the word was "sweet" - you'll have to excuse my tardiness for this post, as it was my birthday weekend and it must have completely slipped my mind in the excitement and celebrations haha..

Anyway, this word came with such PERFECT timing, as I've just recently become a member of the Sweet Stamp Shop Design Team - what a coincidence, right?? I'm absolutely loving working in that group of awesome people and designers, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to document this!! Here is the layout I made:

My favorite part of making this layout was the watercolor background -  I tried my hand at doing an ombre background, and I have to say, I think it came out pretty good! There are so many papers like this out now, but I thought it would be fun to try making the effect myself! I'll definitely be trying this technique out with other colors in the future. Then I had fun just layering scraps of papers together :)

Be sure to check out the full post at the Use Your Words blog, where you'll see inspiration from all the other DT members. And you STILL have a chance to win the exclusive September printable, designed by me!! Make sure you link up at the UYW blog with a layout using one of the challenge words, and you'll be entered to win :)

Thanks for stopping by today - hope you have a great week!!
