The theme of our on-going challenge is "Somewhere Over The Rainbow". You don't have to include a rainbow in your project, you can if you want to but why not think outside the box and let your imagination soar.
Here's my take on the theme - a patchwork rainbow background for that summer in the country look. I was inspired by the song San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers in Your Hair) by Scott McKenzie...
|The background papers are from the bumper Sugar Birdies Collection. For embellishments, |
I used flowers from Bonbon Belles and I finished the project with a few pink & blue blings.
The sentiment is also form the Bonbon Belles CD.
|The image is a pre-coloured digi called Anya from the Fredericka Mini Collection. |
I fussy cut her and popped her up on foam tape. LOVE the way her hair is flying
in the wind....
|Here's the inside. Clearly Anya isn't just sitting about and thinking of you |
for no good reason. :-)
