Daughters are angels

Dear scrappers,

last month I had a beautiful hot summer in my small town. A little bit too hot though for me, but for my daughter, she had really good fun. Being back home after holiday, made her so happy. After all, home sweet home applies for everyone, doesn't it? 

This month I would like to make this layout for 123 Challenge Blog mid month. I got accepted to be one of their Creative Team, yeaayy... :) (can't believe it myself as well). Thank you Alicia Redshaw for accepting me to be one of the Creative Team. It's my first to be in any Creative Team so wish me luck that I can do good (⌗finger cross⌗).

So, here's the challenge COLOUR = Baby Pink WORD = Love TECHNIQUE = Stripes

here's my layout...

The chipboards are ours (alphabets and hearts), except for the frames. It's Creative Embelishments.
I painted black and I used twinkling H2O and Lumiere Acrylic Paint to let the color blended nice with the background. I picked the sentiment 
"Daughters are angels sent from above to fill our heart with unending love"
after googling what would be best to fill in the bottom left side. I finally was happy with the results.

For the background, I didn't do as much as I did with my last layout. I added some gesso and structure paste to created a "rain" like stripes. I used  Prima Marketing "Finnabair" Vintage Vanity No.4 to created the sun rays. And I rubbed Twinkling H2O to add more color for the background. Then I finished it off with some flowers and hearts.


I would like again to thank 123 Challenge Blog Owner, Alicia Redshaw, for giving the opportunity for me to join her Creative team. And don't forget to check out the blog and join the challenge....

At last, I would like to join this layout as well on a challenge that Just Add Ink have for this week with a theme "Just Add Chipboard" and Tando Creative Challenge Blog with "Lovely Layers". Thank you Just Add Ink and Tando Creative for the challenge.
