Sunshiny Days

I apologize for the late post this Sunday morning.  I endeavor to have my Bugbytes guest designer posts up on time but occasionally I get a bit behind schedule.  With that said, I am excited to show you the first two page layout I have done since, well, I think Christmas!  It's based on a sketch from another new sketch site that I've sound - Sketch Support with Allison Davis.  There are more pictures here than I think I have ever used!  I spent a good bit of time in PhotoShop Elements 10 to re-size all of them and then I printed them using my Epson Artisan printer.  Have I mentioned how much I love this printer?  I really love this printer.  Because of the size of the number of pictures I stayed pretty true to the sketch and all of the elements.  I'm trying to do less with more.  Enough jabbering.  Here is the finished page.









All of the die-cuts were cut using my Silhouette Cameo.  I did something a little different though - I actually used the stickers on one of the eighty-five thousand stickers I own.  I was reading on a blog somewhere (wish I could remember where, sorry) that a good way to use these elements is to put them on cardstock and cut around them.  The flowers you see are from the Jillybean Soup's Chicken soup collection and the kite is from Echo Park's A Walk in the Park.  Sometimes I think it can be easier doing this than finding an image, picking out paper, then spicing it up with some other embellishment.  I seem to be in the mood for quick, quick, quick, lately and this certainly fits the bill.  

Recipe:
Paper:  My Mind's Eye Lyme Twist, Jillybean Soup:  Tomato Sauce, Dutch Mustard, Apple cheddar, Chicken Soup, Ehco Park A Walk In The Park
Silhouette:  Die cuts & title
Bling:  Imaginisce
Other elements:  October Afternoon labels & rub ons, Heidi Grace Epoxy Stickers, Daily Doodles flowers

Thanks for stopping by!
