Design Team Member Stacy submitted this layout for the April Bring in the The Challenge. She said: Here is my take on the April's Bring in the Sunshine Challenge.
When I first found out about this challenge I was a little disappointed because I had just made a layout with the theme "sunshine". (I was disappointed not in what the challenge was but in that I had already made and posted that other layout)
But I saw this awesome sketch at Pagemaps (March 2009) and I loved the idea of using a large photo. The sketch had this half circle which was just calling out to become a sun.
The Sassafras Lass Sweetly Smitten paper was the perfect fit with what I had in mind. It had "fake" stitching but I wanted to turn that half circle into a sun so I got out my needle and embossing thread and got busy sewing.
I'm really into stapling on ribbon so I dragged out my ginormous stapler and stapled away at that piece of green ribbon I chose from my stash. I added the title from some Cosmo Cricket Delovely paper and those sweet flowers are Puffies from KI Memories. I had to ink and stickle it too. I just love how it came out. So happy and sunshiny!!
