I Love This Face!

Happy Memorial Day! (if you are in the U.S., if not, Happy Monday instead!) :-)

If you follow me at all you know that I have been competing in the So You Think You Can Scrap Challenge at Colorful Creations for the last 21 weeks.  We started out with over 60 people competing and now we are down to the last 8.  And now for the last few weeks of the competition we will be given a sketch each week to complete and then our layouts will be voted on.  The two layouts with the lowest votes each week will be eliminated. 

Here is my layout for this week.

I really had fun using my stencils and two of my Dylusions ink sprays in Vibrant Turquoise and Lemon Zest.  I pulled out my new stamp set from Crafter's Companion, Sheena's Floral Fantasy EZMount Stamp Set - Bluebells & Daffodils.  I stamped out two daffodils and colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers  using CT1, CT3, CT4, BGR1 and CR1.  After I colored the images, I fussy cut them out and rolled the petals gently to give them a bit of dimension.
I have the Martha Stewart circle edge punch and I punched out a 6 inch doily and inked the edges with Ranger Distress ink in Peacock Feathers.  I also inked my wooden letters and some white alpha stickers with the same ink.  I inked the "arrow" with Ranger Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade.  I made the arrow by using the letter "V" and the lower case "L".   I actually didn't have a wooden "L" for the word "love" either so I cut off part of a "D" and made myself an "L".   This just shows you that you need to think outside the box sometimes and make what you have work for you.
I really like how this layout came out and I hope you like it too!!  If you do, I would be thrilled if you would go to vote for it on Thursday this week at Colorful Creations.   There will only be one day of voting and if you aren't already a member of this NING site you will have to join but this doesn't take very much effort if you want to help a sister out!! LOL
And if you want to see more of these gorgeous new floral stamps from Sheena Douglass that just launched this week you should rush over to Crafter's Companion and check them out!!! 
Thanks for stopping today and checking out my layout!  I hope you are having an awesome Monday.
Until next time...happy scrapping!
