While sorting a box from under the bed I found this sweet photo of my daughter. Her grubby little fingers, happy smile, and sunflower tell the story. Of course nothing would do but to abandon the real work and begin a bit of scrappy therapy!!!

I tried a few new things on this layout.
The first was making mist circles. I opened my mister, and used the end of the tube to draw on my paper. It took multiple dips back into the mist, but the look is JUST what I wanted.
My second exploration involved altering resin flowers. They were just a little too bright for my color scheme. I inked them with pigment ink (white or brown) then dusted with clear, glitter embossing powder. The pink flower I lightly inked a second time and used gold embossing powder.
I'm LOVING the way they turned out!
I will be entering this layout into a new-to-me challenge site.
