AYSI 179 Happy Bee Day

Happy Friday, peeps!  Hard to believe that June is almost over....July will be here SOON!!  The As You See It  DT has a fun challenge for you today...check out these gorgeous colors!

No automatic alt text available.

At first these colors stumped me, but then I found this piece of My Mind's Eye paper (I couldn't find the cover of the pad, so I don't know the name) and it had almost all the colors on it already!  How convenient!  It had a rose-colored floral already printed on the side so I created a different one in Flirty Flamingo to cover it up, then added a few more embellishments of my own:

Everything on the right side of the paper was stamped with images from Darcie's Heart & Home, except for the honeycomb, which is from a retired My Favorite Things set.  Even the little sentiment in the center was added on!  The flowers are from W+9's Freehand Florals:

I added some sequins and a shabby seam-binding bow, then I diecut a circle from the bottom of the panel, flipped it over and stamped the sentiment, then added the black lace and bee images, stamped in Basic Black:


I had a strip left from the original page, so I adhered that on the inside and added a sentiment from Perennial Birthday, stamped on Gray Granite.  I used a square Stitched Shapes framelit to cut a rectangle!!!  I positioned the square die at the top of the sentiment and ran it through once, then re-positioned the die so that it was at the bottom of the sentiment and ran it through again, laying it on the plate so that the uncut edge would go through first.  I turned the crank, but only until I heard the first "clunk", signifying that only the bottom portion of the die went through the BS, then turned it back.  Clear as mud? I'll have to take some pictures to show you sometime!

The design team has some marvelous creations to show sure to stop by the AYSI blog and share your creations with us as well!

Cassidy is with her daddy all next week, so I will get a little vacation!  We did do a little art project today; she painted her little wooden tooth fairy box (she was using it as a first-aid box!!!).  She painted it white, then added some other colors to the top.  I have to learn that my idea of a good paint job and hers are a little different, but she was proud of it (even though she refused to smile for the photo!!!)!

 Enjoy your day and be blessed!
