You are my Sunshine

There is a new sketch this week at Let's Scrap and this is my one page take on it. I started out thinking I would do both sides of the sketch since I have so many pictures from this trip but then I got the sunshine idea from C's shirt. I used Bazzill Kraft and Sassafras papers for the layers and the flowers.

Here is Cheri's beautiful sketch: 

Some details you might be interested in:
The yellow daisy is felt, cut with my Sizzix. The orange and yellow flower is also cut with my Sizzix, then inked and layered. The pink, blue and yellow flower is a folded creation that I learned from the amazing Helen Croft. You can find Helen's tutorial here

I also used some fun and very bulky trim that I got at Joann's. Getting it to stick was quite the project but finally, with a little Beacon's felt glue, I won the war. I just went around the square turning and folding my edges at the corners.

The photos of C were taken last summer at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky. We really enjoyed our visit and I took the opportunity to take just a couple ;) photos of the kids. Here is my favorite layout from the trip:

I was so tickled with the MAMMOTH size of those chipboard letters!

Happy Scrapping!
