Challenge #156 at FCCB, April Showers

This week the challenge at FCCB is to use an umbrella on your project.  I have decided to submit a layout page from a scrapbook I have been working on for my niece.  I am sooo! behind. Her baby is a year old and I am just getting around to making this scrapbook from February last year. This challenge motivated me to get started and I am almost done. Yeah!

I used two Cricut cartridges for this layout, Celebrate with a Flourish for the umbrella and Country Life  for the banner. The umbrella was cut at 4" in three different colors and paper pieced.  I accented it with Stickle's in baby blue and turquoise.  The banner is cut in two sizes to layer and strung together with Martha Stewart twine in blue and white. I also used felt blue letters by Martha Stewart.  I got these for only a $1.00 at TJMaxx.  Needless to say I bought all three sets they had which was good since I needed that many to complete the scrapbook.  The invitation is from the baby shower.  Throughout the scrapbook I incorporated little memento's from the baby shower.

Here's the tip for this project.  I ran out of O's so I took the Q's and removed the tails to make O's.  When do you use Q's anyway? Not very often.

Join us this week with your umbrella project and as always have fun.
Bye, Bye for Now,
