Sweet Summer

HI ya ladies..
Here's a little something I've been working today.. I'm so glad I got it finished..
The colors are not as deep and rich as they are in this photo.. its late and the lighting is bad..
but the end result is still the same..
I found this photo of me in my grand mothers belongings.  I spend a lot of time with her at her summer cabin when I was little and those are the best memories I have of my childhood..

I have added some close ups of the layout..
The two birds represent my grandmother and I.. I loved making the tiger lillies and I wanted to use the colors that I have on the dress I'm wearing.. 70's child....

Supplies Used:

Cricut cartridge: Home Decor (flourish, dragonflies, birds, little flowers and leaves
Cricut cartridge: Accent Essentials (tiger lilys)
Cricut cartridge: Storybook (scalloped squares)
Cricut cartridge: Hello Kitty Font (title)
Papers: K& Co cut & paste Design
Cardstock: lime green, orange, brown and yellow
Stickles: cinnamon, yellow,orange and lime green
Tim Holtz distress ink: walnut stain and green
black marker (dots on the flowers)
Pop dots

Thank you everyone so much looking..
