Life is Good

This is another LO I did at the Cardinal Colours retreat with SJ.
The papers are Echo Park - Life is Good - Floral Dress, Seeing Spots and Grandma's Quilt plus Alpha stickers.
We created some flowers and cut others from the floral paper.
A template created the shape with a strip added of another pattern.

I added some faux stitching with a white and black gel pen.

This was one of the flowers we learned to make, I did mine with a scalloped edge punch.

The pearls were in the kit along with the buttons.

A also punched some leaves and added them for dimension.

And a punched butterfly.

I used the title "No more photos!" because on this particular day, Jess kept avoiding the camera and his expression seemed to say just that!
One of his favourite things was to come in and sit on the stairs looking through the bannisters until we began to tickle him. He used to bang his head against the posts and through the gaps to get more attention.
