I found a great new challenge blog for layouts. It is called
Black with Two For September the challenge is to use DOMINANT BLACK CARDSTOCKWITH YELLOW AND BLUE and no other colors. At first I thought black cardstock? -but I leafed through my pics and found these of my granddaughter Katie when we took her to the park and came up with this idea. This was a really fun challenge and I am really happy with the way it came out. I am also entering this in The Paper Variety challenge which is to use your favorite embellishment. Well I love using buttons!!!!!
Recipe- The swing and slide are cut at 3 inches from Pop-Up Neighborhood. The title is cut from Nursery Rhymes at 1 1/2 inches. The sun is cut at 4 inches from Hello Kitty. I rotated the top cut with the shadow. I also embossed and added stickles. I removed the face with my Gypsy so I could use a Peachy Keen smiley face. The sand is from Paper Dolls. I then added paper mats using blue and some gingham paper which is light and bright yellow. I finally embellished with blue and yellow buttons and Stickles on the sun.
