Sonshine

Project #30 of 100
---------------------------------

This layout was supposed to be for two challenges - the Authentique Color Challenge and the Unity Friends with Flair Challenge. But I missed the deadline for Authentique. It was Wednesday : (  I guess since FWF is on a Friday I just had today in mind to post this. Oh well. *(more excuses at the bottom of post)*

Here it is:


Authentique's challenge was to use pink, blue, and yellow. (Way out of my neutrals and earth tones comfort zone!)

 I cut my title using my Cricut.
The flowers were stamped and fussy cut from the You + Me = Bliss set from Unity that also happens to be a co-brand with Authentique!

The tags and stickers are Authentique's as are the 12x12 paper and the patterned paper making the rays. Those were punched with the SU ribbon trim punch.

This turned out way different than I had intended. But I like that I have pink and flowers and a doily on a layout about the boys.

------------------------------
*I think I seriously worked on this layout for almost two weeks. Only for like 5 minutes at a time, but still.  Baby has been teething like forever now. Nothing like a grumpy needy baby to keep you from getting things  done. Then the kindergartener decided to catch strep and miss 3 1/2 days of school. Nothing like a needy baby and sick 5-year-old to keep me from getting things done! Then baby also decided to spend an afternoon vomitting on me. Stomach bug? IDK. Luckily it didn't last too long. I haven't posted anything in 2 weeks : \  That feels like so long. But we all appear healthy now*

LOVE the layout, Amber! The sunrays and the flowers are so pretty--great colors against the blue. Great pictures, too! I am so sorry to hear you've had sick kids (and teething counts as sick, too)--ugh! Glad everyone is better now. :)
