Dream...CR84FN69 41

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, December 29, 2012 @ 9:55 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great weekend! After a holiday break, we're back creating with color at the CR84FN Color Challenge! Please help me welcome the talented Lisa Snowdy of Adventures in Paperland, who will be joining along as our Guest Designer for the month of January! For nearly the next two weeks, we will be playing with the pretty color combination shown below:
Yep, I am one proud Mom and I'm still celebrating my son Jerry's college graduation. :) I made a layout of Jerry and April that was taken after the ceremony. I stamped a sentiment from MFT Inspired by Knowledge on a die cut made using Die-namics Framed Greetings die.
I made several flowers using the following Die-namics: Die-namics Layered Rose, Die-namics Large Royal Rose and Die-namics Plentiful Petals along with some flourishes made using Die-namics Fancy Flourish and Die-namics Medium Fancy Flourish.
Using Die-namics Butterflies and some corrugated cardboard, I made a pretty little layered butterfly embellishment: 
I also made a card using the left over patterned paper. The sentiment is from MFT Finishing Flourishes.
I die cut a Kraft cs heart using Die-namics Hearts a Plenty then added texture using an embossing folder. I finished the card with a trio of die cut flower embellishments made using the following Die-namics: Die-namics MINI Rolled Roses, Die-namics Mini Royal Roses along with flourish made using Die-namics Leafy Flourish
For the layout sketch inspiration, I joined along with another freaking scrappy challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to stop by the CR84FN blog to see the awesome samples that Lisa and the CR84FN DT has created! Hope you join along in the fun!
Be Sweet ;)
