Here comes the sun...doo, doo, doo, do...

What an apt choice of layout after a rained out bank holiday. Well rained out may be a slight exaggeration - itermittant showers is a more realistic term. So this is my layout for this weeks scrapping the music challenge (gotta love that blog!) I chose the lyric "Give me Sunshine" I was going to use the following lyric - when all I see is gray, but it didn't fit on the page! I avoided going for the obvious yellows and felt that green and pink were very spring time and bold. I used white paint to create the masked title and to replicate rays of sun coming from the green thickers. I must apologise for the quality of the close-ups. I am criminally impatient (as Nigella says in her cookbooks) and so just wanted to get the pics up. I like the bling on the "i".
The green felt flowers were spiced up with button blooms and blinging petals.
The journalling on the right reads exploring Roundhay Park. On the left the circular journalling reads:
You are the cake in my cup,
The down when I am up.
I then realised this sounds a bit negative so added-
(to no good!) as he is very good at telling me to behave and to be nicer about people.
Aren't these flowers just gorgeous? My fav colours and a bargain from Asda.
So hope you enjoyed my bright, blinging page. It has lots of sparkle and even a cut out border from a patterned page - something I rarely do.
Thanks for stopping by. I have seen lots of good challenges around so I will hopefully be posting some more treats soon!
