Paper Sweeties August Inspiration Challenge #22 - 'Let's Celebrate'

Hello there!

Welcome to the August Inspiration Challenge and Blog Hop for Paper Sweeties!!!

Paper Sweeties is celebrating their second birthday!!!  Lots of fun, lots of designers and best of all.....
lots of prizes!!!!


Here is the lovely inspiration photo for you to use when you create...

Lovely, right? This should be easy!!!!

I went a little crazy with all the amazing dies Paper Sweeties has to offer!!! The banner die and wagon are from Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts set is one of my favorites! The present, bows at either end of the banner, and the balloons ( not really balloons, but are ornaments) are from Homespun Holidays Sweet Cuts.  The tiny flowers at the bottom of the wagon are from Home Tweet Home Sweet Cuts.

The sentiment is from the set Beautiful
All cardstock is from Papertrey Ink. I used Copic Markers to color the images and inks from Hero Arts in wet cement, soft blossom and field greens. The enamel dots are My Mind's Eye. I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen. The alphabet stickers are from Snap, baby girl.

I am entering this into the Addicted to CAS challenge...celebrate


Grab a cup of coffee and hop along with us!!!
