Maui Princess...CR84FN10 48

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, January 8, 2011 @ 10:00 PM | , ,

Hi there! Thanks so much for all your support and encouraging words on both Cupcake's Creations and on the CR84FN Color Challenge blog! There were an amazing 58 STUNNING entries and 187 friends already :)
Here's my take on this week's color combo:
I created a layout featuring my step-daughter Meredith while on a vacation on Maui in 2004! How time flies. I combined a LF-124 Grand Scalloped Circle and a LF-114 Grand Circle die template to create the white circular scalloped frame and the all the multi-layered flowers were made using multiple sizes of S4-249 Big Scalloped Circles LG and  S4-250 Big Scalloped Circles SM die templates. For sketch inspiration, I played along with Creative Scrappers:
I inked up a gorgeous image from Very Vintage Labels No.10 then using a S5-022 Labels Ten die template to cut/emboss the label. The decorative piece stamped in green under the PRINCESS sentiment is from Holiday Labels No.14 and the PRINCESS sentiment is from My Mind's Eye, Lost and Found Collection/Market Street Adore.

That's all I have for today. Thanks so much for looking and I sure hope you hop on over to visit this week's Guest Designer: Betty, and the CR84FN DT: Sue, Suzanne, Heather, Lisa, Deborah, Meredith, Stephanie and Andrea for some awesome inspiration!

Hope you have a great day and join along with the CR84FN10 challenge!
