Challenge Me Happy #19

Howdy, scrapper friends! I want to share with you a layout I created for the latest DT challenge at Challenge Me Happy. The task is to create your own embellishment. I made the little blue ribbon flowers. They're so easy to make!

I loved this photo of Paige's little curls...I felt like it deserved a scrappy page all to itself :) I used some coordinating papers from Michael's...the Recollections brand. So many colors & patterns, and when I have a 40% off coupon, I'm definitely buying it!

I started with some Kraft paper and then added lots of drips & splatters of blue & green watercolor paint. I made it really watery so it would be kind of see-through. I painted around the perimeter of the page the same way. I like the way the color of the Kraft sort of dulls the color...I like that effect.

These little flowers are so easy...I just punched a circle and covered it with my tape runner. I start in the middle of the circle and just start adhering the ribbon while turning the circle. It becomes this little spiral flower...and then I just added a pearl to the center.

I loved this unique sketch from Page Maps, so I jumped right on it.

The amazing sponsor for this month is once again
