You Are My Sunshine **TCR**

TGIF!!! Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. I have some exciting news to reveal today. I have been asked to be a RDA for the next four palette releases at The Color Room…I am pumped and just so thrilled that they asked me. **Internet Scream!!!** I love playing there weekly and the palettes are always just so amazing! For TCR #81 palette it is based on His Room..and these colors are just gorgeous together. I created my layout with Prima papers and goodies and few pieces of Dusty Attic. I also used the BAP sketch this month. The photo is my daughter and grandson when I went to visit over Thanksgiving weekend. They just moved by the ocean and this was his first time down to the shoreline close to their house.


I distressed the outside paper and fussy cut the inside one from a template I have. I inked the edges and added a few layers of goodies and of course one of my favs…DA chicken wire J

This is my new Martha Stewart punch…love it! I added a DA border on top of it and some Prima swirls.

For the big flower cluster I used all Prima flowers, the gorgeous DA ferns, some other goodies and I tucked in some gauze for texture.

Here is another close up of the cluster and you can also see some masking on the card stock behind the photo.

Ok well that is it for today. If you want tonnes of inspiration come on by TCR, each week there is a new gorgeous palette to play with. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
