A few of my favorite things- You are such a joy!!

I haven’t done a sketch challenge at MME for such a long time. I saw it on their blog today and just fell in love with the sketch. 
I went and dug up some MME papers from my stash and got to work on this layout.
I started by mimicking the square pattern of the sketch using a CW mask. However after adding papers and embellishments, I sadly covered almost the whole squared pattern.  There is some of it left around the edges which I sprayed with Shimmerz:  Tuscan Sun and Cotton Candy. But you can’t really see the pattern in the center.

Ronda Palazzari MME May Sketch
I just ordered some new Shimmerz sprays including Tuscan Sun. I have to say that I’m in love with this shade of yellow. I’m not a huge fan of yellow, but this shade is just gorgeous. The name makes me want to actually go to Italy.
I use Shimmerz a lot on my projects and I really recommend them because they are light and shimmery. They are made for those people who are sometimes afraid to spray because theya re scared they will ruin a page. They are so light, almost translucent and do not overpower in color.
I want to remind you guys again that if you want to buy some Shimmerz  make sure you mention me when you check out. You will receive a free “Sample sized” Texturez or Dazzlerz product and you can even choose the color.
All you have to do is mention my name at the “Instructions to Merchant” during checkout. Make sure you specify which of product you want to receive for free.
Trust me you will not regret trying these. They are amazing!!
I have to tell you a little bit about this picture. When I took it, my heart almost melted with joy. It was such a tender moment which happens seldom, as my kids constantly bicker with each other. However on this particular day, my DD happened to get hurt and guess who came to the rescue. My amazing son sat down and hugged her. I was so lucky to have had my iphone handy and just snapped this photo.
I added some hidden journaling behind the photo.
I really hope my kids will always be there for each other the way my sisters and I are there for each other. I know they fight a lot now, but I know that will change.
I did a lot of fussy cutting from the MME papers and I used some matching Prima flowers and bling.

    Love the sunburst layout, but in such delicate colours… and those elements of texture in the background are wonderful! My brother and I fought like cat and dog when we were younger (with maybe the occasional moment like this too!) – but we're so close now – it's a relationship I treasure.

    Haha just read the entire post & yes I cover my work a lot too so have started photographing my mixed media pages before I start the page so people can see how they were before they got covered up!! I agree about Shimmerz – Maya Road are great if you want very definite strong coverage!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

    Some really fantastic content on this website , thanks for contribution.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
