Sunshine & Bluebonnets

Hi there, everyone! I sure have missed blogging the last 10 days but I've been making memories with the family, Spring cleaning and creating lots of goodies for upcoming assignments and publications! I wanted to show you this layout I did of my daughter a couple of weeks ago. We ventured out to the country for a huge craft/thrift festival and on the way home we stopped and snapped some photos in the bluebonnets fields. We snapped a gazillion of our own photos but there was a photographer there and she snapped a few photos of my girls while we were out there. Thanks to Crystal D Photography for the photo in this layout!

I used the new American Crafts Mayberry collection! I LOVE, love, love it! To create the border, I drew triangles in Silhouette Studio around the outer perimeter of the design software. I was able to measure how big to make them in the actual software. I just placed 6x6" sheets from the 6x6" paper pad and cut them out. The hardest part was deciding which pieces to put where!

I just love the new Thickers that came with the Mayberry collection. They look like they are covered in sugar crystals!

Rheagan saw that they had a chalkboard and wanted me to write Peace, Love, Lions (her school mascot and their slogan this year) but she also liked the idea of Peace, Love Bluebonnets so we went with that! There's also a peek at my journaling. The back just tells the rest of the story about how much fun we had in the bluebonnets fields and closes with how beautiful I think she is. I tell her a lot but I also want it documented!

Thanks for visiting me today!
