Getting into the routine

Hello...I'm writing quickly since it's getting late and I wanted to get some kind of crafting time in.  So the kiddos are officially on a schedule, but I'm exhausted!  As I'm putting the kids to bed I'm ready to join them...lol.  I'm thinking it's an emotional kind of exhaustion with my kids growing up and my son not so excited to go to preschool.  I'm hanging in there though and reminding myself that this phase will pass...cross my fingers.

I wanted to join the next Lawnscaping Challenge: One Layer using inspiration of colors and pattern from the next Runway Inspired Challenge

Lawn Fawn Summertime Charm, LF Sophie's Sentiments, LF Bannerific, LF Belinda's Borders, Memento Inks in Rose Bud, Lilac Posies, Grape Jelly, London Fog and Tuxedo Black, Color Box ink in Bubblegum

Talk about a challenge because I had to stop myself from adding rhinestones or twine!  I used the negative space of a die cut flower as a mask and stamped away, also masking off the banner. Framed everything using LFs Belinda's Borders and there you have it...a one layer card!

 Here's the RIC photo...

Mahalo for stopping by!
