It took me 2 days to complete this. I contemplated going simple or all out. I have a mix of both. I punched the border with Martha Stewart "Daisy" border punch. I thought it looked a little blah up top so I punched another sheet of card stock and attached to the top. I laid down my mat @ the bottom and started layering a few items on top. I used a collection from Recollections which mirrors Amy Tan Sketchbook almost to the T. I bet you cant tell the difference. Then I used Martha Stewart "Pinking" circle punch and layered over a half circle punched out using Marvy 2 inch circle. I stamped using Jenni Bowlin "Whimsical" foam stamp~ I did not know you could stamp with mist. I used Tattered Angels Chalkboard in Strawberry Shortcake. I also used Shimmerz in "Licorice". That's pretty much it. Thanks for looking and happy crafting.

Good evening everybody. Just wanted to pop in and drop off a layout. I took this photo in June just before Gabby and I got out of the car. Instagram has some cool features and I love anything that looks dated. I forgot the filter I used but I love it. Anywhoo I tried to go outside the box and use a different color base this time. It's by Bazzill called Butter. I love the dotted background. I picked up the color on a whim. I didn't plan on using it as a base, more like punched shapes. I think it matches the tone of the picture and the colors in her outfit, along with that sun-kissed skin.
