DREAMY

 Hi Friends! Well we almost have made it through the winter! I imagine everyone is ready for spring time!
The inspiration for my layout is my sweet niece Anna, & her dreamy ways!  At  family get together you always find Anna with her animal friends! If it is furry & has a tail she is usually off in some world with it! Anna is quiet & calming along with her fur babies... in their own dreamy world!
From my stash I  used Prima papers from the Strawberry Kisses Collection.. they were soft & spring-like! So I felt they were perfect!
 Lots of hand made flowers here! It took me 6 hours to make just the flowers!! I found it very therapeutic! I made the flowers using various punches & dies. The leaf portion was a Martha Stewart rose leaf punch. I inked all layers of the flowers with Distress Walnut Stain & Worn Lipstick, the leaf is inked with Peeled Paint.
 The large lettering is about a 5 year old purchase from an Archiver's $1 bin. I have not been in an Archiver's in several years, so I do not even know if they still have $1 bins! I added some ink & a bit of Petal Pink Liquid Pearls.
 The little droplets was made using beads & some awesome wire that I got at Joann's online. The product name is "FunWire" & is a translucent covered wire in various colors! I just added the beads, wrapped it around a lollipop stick, stretched it & attached!
Lastly, I added some corner flourishes made with a Bosskut die & added a beaded stick pen so it sorta looks like a butterfly!
This was a fun layout to do! I was off in my own dreamy world thinking of spring!
Thanks so much for dropping by!  You guys are the best!
