(Sorry this picture is a little off kilter. Took the pic with my phone)

So this is a LO I made in the wee hours this am. I used Echo Park paper pack Summer Days. This collection is soooo freakin' cute! I love all the papers so much. They are so festive and bright!
Anyways, let me tell ya how I made this! I used a piece of golden Bazzill cardstock for the background. Then I took the BoBunny Mamarazzi paper that has that shape, traced around it on the back of the diamonds paper. Cut it out delicately and glued down. Next I used more bazzill cardstock in green, purple, and white. Cut out the sizes I needed and matted my pics. All the embellies used are from this line- chipboard stickers, regular stickers, and titles. I wanted the whole thing to pop a little bit more so I used Smooch bright pink and colored around the diamond sheet and placed little dots here and there. Wrote my journaling and all done!
