Today's layout was done for two challenges. First, I completed it for the Ebony & Ivory challenge in Julie Wickens' Christmas Countdown Facebook group. (Excuse me for the pops of green you see behind the black flowers.)
The second challenge is the December Double-Page Sketch Challenge from Stick It Down.
Even though it's freezing here, I know that spring will come again and we'll be hitting up our local park and playground. These pictures were taken at the playground on a day when it had been raining really hard in the morning, and I told my daughter that if the rain had stopped when she woke up from her nap, we'd go to the playground. Well, wouldn't you know it? The rain stopped. We managed to get enough playtime in before the rain started again!
I pulled a lot of product from my stash for this one. The papers are from an old paper pad, and I've got some Vicki Boutin Mixed Media stickers on there, plus some random flowers from my stash.
As I've done with some of my other stashbuster layouts, I just picked embellishments without regard to whether or not they really "fit" with the theme of the pictures. If they fit with the scheme of the kit or the challenge, then I was going to use them just to finally use them!!
Thanks for looking!
