A Little Taste of Summer and A Recycled Flower

Good morning! Lisa here with you again. I don't know about you, but it gets to be this time of year, and I am ready for summer. Although the weather has been really mild so far this winter, I am still thinking (and dreaming) about wearing capris and flip flops. lol.
So, to go with the wishful summer theme, I decided to pull out my Echo Park Summers Day collection. I love the bright, fun colors of this line. Here is a layout I made using:
Clouds patterned paper
Icecream patterned paper
Scallops patterned paper
Rainbow patterned paper
Journaling cards
You can check out the entire Echo Park Summers Day line in the store HERE
I stamped the fairy images and used watercolor pencils to color them and added Stickles.
I also made my flower. It is made out of a recycled dryer sheet. All you do is cut 3 circles, each one a little smaller than the first, add color with a mist:,
let dry, add Stickles around the edges of the circles. Let dry. Stack them from biggest to smallest and hold the three layers together with a brad or button. I squish mine up a little to give it more dimension.
Hope you enjoyed my little bit of warm weather and sunshine today:)
