:: you are my sunshine ::

I am up on the Paper Issues Blog today with a layout using Pinkfresh Studio's Up in the Clouds collection.
I've had this photo printed out and ready to scrap for several years. When I saw this awesome watercolor paper, I knew it would be perfect for this photo and this story.  Look how little she is!  YIKES!  Time flies, doesn't it??
I loved the "rain" look of this paper so I decided to go with that -- and enhance it a bit.  I stitched with my machine at various lengths, and added an enamel dot to the end of each stitched line.  I really love how it turned out!  I've also been waiting for just-that-right layout to use those awesome hearts!

It may be difficult to tell in the photos, but there is pink tulle behind the cut out title.

I am linking this up to Paper Issues current issue: Enamored with Enamel sponsored by Paper Camellia.

Here are some ideas for what could you link up to Enamored with Enamel:

  • Use enamel embellishments, like enamel dots, hearts, chevrons, words, etc.
  • Do you love stars? Let them take a starring role on your project.
  • Are polka dots your thing? Go ahead, go dotty with dots.
  • Get things pointed in the right direction by using arrows, geotags, globes, etc.
  • Is punctuation your thing? Add punctuation symbols to your project.
  • Share the love by using hearts.
  • Show us something you absolutely love, whether it be a person, flower, food, thing, place, movie, song, etc.
  • Use Paper Camellia's kits.

Here's what you need to do to be eligible to win Paper Camellia's March Main Kit:

1. Link up as many projects as you'd like. They can be new OR old.

2. LINK BACK to Paper Issues between now and March 22nd.
