For my project today, I created a layout!

I used a super cute file from Scrapping Bug Designs called I'm Walking On Sunshine. Here is the link to this adorable file: Walking On Sunshine 
Here is a close up of 2 of the cuts available in the file. When I did the cuts I did not change the sizes at all.
I did use a kraft colored cardstock and did a second cut a little larger then layered the cuts and out lined it with a faux stitching using a white gel pen.
 Now here is a close up of my dragonfly. To make it I used a beautiful Pinque Peacock Pearl Pin and 2 of the new colors of Trendy Twine that are available right now. I used Lime Orangesicle and Lime Grapesicle. I made a bow using both colors of twine and cut a small piece to tie it together in the center I pulled both ends of that piece up to create the antennas. I then wrapped the end of the beautiful pin with Lime Grapesicle and glued the pin to the top of my Trendy Twine bow. I added 2 drops of lime liquid pearls to the top of the antennas to hold them down. Now here are your links to these great products:
