the days of Wonder and Whimsy

I decided to try out a new challenge this month. The sketch for this L/O can be seen at Once Upon a...Sketch. Go see it for yourself then whip up something for these wonderful designers to see!

the days of Wonder & Whimsy

The patterned papers here are CTMH and Prima. The teal and rhinestone blossom is made from Recollections trim. The purple flowers are Imaginisce, and their gem centers are CTMH. The tiny type is Girls Paperie and the alpha is Thickers. I layered three colors of Tattered Angels mist on this L/O. They are Dragonfly, Patina, and Spanish Moss.

The paper strips on the left are Kaiser Craft and the twine is from The Twinery and Doodle Bug Design. The Liquid Pearls (Ranger) are Key Lime and I used a Pebbles Inc. stencil for placement. The butterflies are Melody Ross with Recollections gem strips down the center.

My journaling (on a scrap of DCWV, Mariposa) reads, "I miss the days we spent in Mayille, especially the long summer days spent with friends."
