Let's get close, shall we??

Hi Mosh-Posh'ers...Amy, here, and it's my turn to get you excited about this month's rockin' kit!!

I just love the color combos this month (Pink Paislee has done it again with Harvest Moon) and chose to go w/ the sun coral cardstock as the base for this 8.5x11 LO. My title is "bright eyes" and corresponds nicely to the photograph of my oldest daughter, Olivia. The Fashion script stickers are awesome - the font is just so cool. But to make the letters stand out a bit more against the turquoise of the Jenni Bowlin crepe paper ribbon (folded over to make ruffles), I decided to outline them w/ my trusty white Sharpie. I cut a circle out of the middle of the Blue Moon die cut paper leaving just the scalloped edge. It makes for a perfect "boundary" for this LO. My journaling strips were cut from the bottom of the Night Owl paper (which means I can still use Mr. Owl for another project!). Here's the whole LO:

Kristen also included two sheets of the Cosmo Cricket Fleruiste blackboard - so many different shapes and flourishes it was hard to choose!! I ended up using a few swooshes on the bottom right corner of the photo. Then I took one of the Bazzill flowers and grabbed it in the middle to gather it all up. I stapled the center then placed it, flat, on the cardstock (the flower looks completely flat in the pic above b/c I scanned that image. IRL, the flower is nice and poofy!!). Finally, a Chatterbox artsy-licious Splendid Treasure finishes off the accent:

To tie it all together, I added another Bazzill flower in the upper left corner with a piece of the blackboard and a Chatterbox epoxy button on top with a piece of hemp string to add some interest:And there you have it - one of my favorite LO's in a long time. It was quick and easy and turned out fabulous thanks to this great kit!!! Remember to upload your creations to the Member Gallery. Can't wait to see what you create!!
