Smelling the Roses

Hi there,
I have a layout to share which was submitted at Sketches in Thyme
for their sketch challenge #93.

Here's the sketch:

And this is what I created:
Our son when he was 2 years old.  Hard for me to believe he's now 20 years old!!
He loved these roses and had to sit right beside them, smelling them and touching them.
It was so cute!

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok, DCWV
Distressing w/Scissors
Folk Art Glitter Paint/Toothbrush
Cork board
Perfect Pearls Mists
Sharpie Marker
Pop Dots
Font: Cricut Stamped

A toothbrush was dipped in glitter paint and splattered onto the page and hexagons
using my thumb.  Sometimes it's fun to get a little messy!  :)
The journaling block is on a larger hexagon and the edges distressed.

Each hexagon was distressed.  For some reason I had a hard time to arrange these
where I wanted them and where they would look best.  Ugh!
This is what I finally ended up with.

It was harder to adhere these letters with no straight line to follow!  I had to use a 
ruler to help me out, but then the ruler moved.  So much for that, right?
They're a bit crooked but oh well!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you will return!
