You Are Wonderful
(Scraps of Elegance "Sunshine & Sweet Tea" kit
& Words & Paintery challenge)

Have you seen the brand new kits from Scraps of Darkness and Scraps of Elegance?  They are gorgeous!  Click HERE to see them and find out how to subscribe to either or both monthly kits!

Over the next few days, I will be sharing with you my DT projects created with the Scraps of Elegance kit called "Sunshine & Sweet Tea", the perfect kit name for July!

As you can see, this kit features the beautiful Butterfly Kisses collection from BoBunny combined with some Blue Fern Studios papers, chipboard and flowers.  Along with the different add-on kits are also included flowers, wood icons, twine and stamps from Prima, more flowers from Petaloo and even more pretty embellishment pieces and mixed media products!

When I saw this challenge at Words & Paintery, I found that the colour palette matched this kit to a T so I decided to play along.  Click HERE for details on this challenge.

And now let's take a look at some close-ups of my layout which is all about my niece Ella who is truly wonderful.  She is growing up so fast... the picture was taken at her 5th grade graduation.  Her story is just beginning!

I added some stenciling with modeling paste on the right side of my page and lined up the 2 different paper patterns with fussy cut butterflies from the BoBunny papers.  I sprinkled a bit of Imagine Ink glitter on the wings and added a Prima wooden heart into the center of each.

 Ella looks so sweet in her coral Summer dress with which some of the kit papers and flowers match perfectly.

I hope you've enjoyed this glimpse into the SOE "Sunshine & Sweet Tea" kit.

Come back in a couple days for more!
