Sunshine on my shoulders

This was a lift from a lady at -
I did this layout for a 'Sunshine' challenge, it had to have sunshine in the title or a sun layout or just outdoor sun fun. So this song came to mind-- Sunshine on my shoulders make me happy, sunshine in my eyes can make me cry..........
Anyway, I thought these pictures were the perfect match!
I used glitter paint in the flowers & on the white. I used a swirl stencil for the first time, I think it came out okay. The pen I used for the stencil was a white Signo Impact gel pen. I also used my Bo Bunny flex ruler, one of those tools I just had to have now & then rarely used it, glad it came in handy. :)

Silly faces

This was a fun one! I love the bright colors. I actually got these felt things from the summer aisle at Hobby Lobby. They were on a string, I guess you hang them for some kind of decor. But of course I see everything as something to put on a page!

The journaling says:
I have always taken lots of pictures of you &
had you posing for something.
Now you always come to me,
'mom take a picture of me or of this'
So you wanted pictures of different faces
& I think these turned out so cute!

I just love the look of this. I scraplifted it form a gallery on This lady has the most incredible layouts!!!

Anyway, I printed the 8x10 in sepia then printed a 5x7 in black & white, the background paper matched the sepia picture pefectly! (I think it is Basic Grey from the Scarlet Letter series??) I added flowers & some copper pearls as the flower centers & then also placed them around. I also cut out a flowery thing & put it on pop dots to make it stand up.
