My friend Tracee from the UK and I decided to do the XOXO Challenge again since we had so much fun doing the April one. So she threw a couple of names in a hat, so to speak, to decide which one we would lift. The first one pulled out didn't work for either of us....lol neither the 2nd ha ha ha so funny, although you probably had to be there. Another was pulled and we decided that one as well really wasn't our style, and no we wern't cheating...lol This left us with two to pick from. Tracee's placed one in each had and I chose a hand, giving us Michelle's Pretty Tulip layout to lift.
Since Tracee and I have completely different styles, we like to do a challenge like this to see what each of come up with. So here is my take on Michelle's.
Products used for this are Bazzill bling for the background and paper scraps are from Cosmo Cricket & Fancy Pants including the banner. Chipboard journal die cut is a Dusty Attic. Umbrella sticker and decorative swirls are K & Company and the flowers are a mix of prima and kaiser. K & CO and Basic Grey letter stickers and I have used Tattered Angels Creme de Rouge Glimmer mist with a prima mask.
Thanks for looking and for any comments that you may leave they are always appreciated.
Oh!!! And don't forget to come back later as I will have another layout for White + 1
Bye for now Fi
