Hi there,

It was a beautiful sunny day today... and the sun was even melting the snow!  Woo hoo!  We're getting closer to Spring!

Today's layout was submitted at Colorful Creations for their Member Spotlight Sketch Challenge (gdtmar).  Here's the sketch:

This is what I created:
Andrew created these flowers and smiley faces from recycled cereal boxes.  They're so cute!  He painted everything after and even the "flames" on the orange and black rose, which was inspired by our school's colors.

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok, DCWV
Sizzix Leaf Die
Vellum & Plastic Leaves
Gold Cording
Perfect Pearls Mists: Blue Smoke
Mister Huey's Color Mist: Shine
Cardstock Title
Ink: Color Box Blue Lagoon
The edges of the title was inked and matted on pp.

 The leaves were cut from gold patterned vellum and plastic (what was wrapped around a photo album when purchased).  I layered one over the other for some added interest.  The background paper, large single banner and smaller banner were misted with two different mists.
The banner was made using triangles from pp and cotton twill, wrapped around gold cording and misted.

Here's a closer look at the banner.

Thanks for stopping by!
