Pink Plus One

Hi friends,

Long time no see huh? I've had some crafty time lately but not enough to get things photographed and blogged about! :( Busy, busy time - I always think the beginning and end of each school year are pretty close to insanity! :D

This week over at Crafty Creations we are creating with Pink Plus One...this was a fun one and I went all psychedelic with this fab paper! I have had this paper for YEARS; it's in a small self-stick pad from DCWV; all the designer paper is from the same pad giving several different pinks to work with and black - FUN!

The flower was made from re-purposed tissue paper that has black and pink polka dots - how perfect is that? I actually edged them in a bright pink color but it sure looks off in the photo - BOO!! Sorry 'bout that!

The brad in the center is from MME and has been around for ages too. Yeah for using the stash! Layout is Deconstructed Sketch #99. I decorated the inside with plenty of room for writing a personal message. The white flag was hand cut, I stamped the sentiment and then used PTI's Polka Dot Basics to create my own range of polka dots in various colors and sizes.
