A touch of Teal?


Another quick share next project using the November MCS Creative Kit

My little girl recently broke her arm at school.  It was a really nasty 24 hours, we had an overnight hospital stay and she had to go to theatre for surgery after 11 or so hours of waiting.   
It was hard waiting that long with a little one in agony.  
This photo was taken the morning after the surgery....She was exhausted

"Thinking of you"

I pulled out all the similar teal colours in the kit for this page, to give it a monochromatic feel.
I did some fussy cutting from a floral sheet in the kit and used the template to cut the ampersand out of the coordinating patterned paper.  I pulled apart the flowers and made them less dimensional, placing a string tied button in the centre of each.

Some doilies peeking out from behind, some punched stars, a splattering of Shimmerz Coloringz, 
a few stickers.....and a little layering!

My journaling was written on strips of cardstock and then cut apart and stacked on top of each other.

You know sometimes a page just feels good from start to finish...
the colours work, the embellishments work, and it just comes together?  
This was one of those.  
I loved working on this one. 
 I just wish they happened more often!  

I hope you will check back soon, for more fun projects using the MCS kit.  :-)

Have a good day!
