Celebrate Today Layout

Hi Everyone! 

Thanks for joining us for the Spring Inspiration Pink by Design Blog hop.  If you came from Lori's Blog then you are in the right place.  If you would like to start at the beginning then head on over to Pink by Design.  The theme is Spring Inspiration and Create any one project using the picture below. 

Isn't it such a pretty picture?  I was inspired by the little yellow flowers on top of the cupcakes and the peaches.   I made a layout of my sister and I at her wedding last spring.  I have to say this is my favorite layout that I have made this year. 

This sentiment is from the Giant Greetings stamp set by Pink by Design.  I made the little flowers and pennants from the CTMH- Art Philosophy cartridge

The yellow border is from the Paper Lace cartridge.  I found these butterflies at my local scrapbook store and when I saw them I had to have them.  I think they are so pretty. 

To make the damask I used the Damask Decor cartridge.  I cut out the damask on page 51 using the Silhouette feature and then laid it where I wanted it on my paper.  Once I did that I sprayed it with my Silver Foil Smooch spritz.  I let it completely dry and then I finished my layout.  I also used Vanilla shimmer Smooch spritz on the grey floral patterned paper.    

The Cricut cartridges I used were Damask Decor, Elegant Edges and CTMH- Art Philosophy.  The paper I used is from Authentique's Blissful collection.  I also used Konnichiwa & Plumeria by Basic Grey.  The card stock is from Bazzil.  The Colorbox Fluid Chalk inks I used were Yellow Citrus, Rouge, Pink Pastel and Creamy Brown.  The yellow & cream buttons are buttons I had in my stash.  I also used my Epiphany Crafts Round 14 tool. 
The stamp I used was from the Giant Greetings set.
