A Little Cheer!

Hi everyone!

I've got a word to describe what's been going on in our household the past week: bubonic...
as in, you know, the in, it's been totally bubonic in our home...!!

Anyway, you get the picture. It's been a bit rough but everyone seems to be on the mend now :)
How about something to cheer everyone up?

Just looking at that photo cheers me up! But I'm a tad partial ;) So how about a challenge? That's right, a new challenge is up at True XOXO and it's based on the timeless, classic Audrey Hepburn. Show us how she can inspire you!

She has a quote that starts "I believe in pink." And that (and this photo) became the inspiration for my page. That's my baby girl all glammed up in her sunnies and I really could not get this song lyric by Pink out of my head all last week so I went with it!

So what's my latest craze? Feathers! I'm seeing them all over the crafting world and I love it! I cut my feathers out with my Silhouette and colored them with my other new favorite thing...Derwent Inktense Watersoluble smooth people, so smooth! Add a little doodling and voila! feathers to match any page!

I'm pretty proud of myself for using patterned paper as my background.  Most of my pages are on white CS but I'd given myself a small challenge this year to use my patterned goodies and to layer those papers together too. I think I'm working it out alright. To add a bit more interest to the background though, I layered with gesso, watercolors, and acrylic paint. Watercolors create a lovely effect...give it a try!

That little banner is made out of washi tape. I found the colors too bright so I sanded it down, stamped my sentiment, taped it on cardstock and cut the edges. 

Well I hope that added a little cheer to your day...see you over at True XOXO!
