Color Me Scrappy DT project - challenge #3

It's the first of the month which means it is time for another challenge from Color Me Scrappy. This was the beautiful color palette we had to work with.
...And this is what I came up with. I used quite a mixture of different companies...October Afternoon (Ducks in a Row), American Crafts (Dear Lizzy Neapolitan), Authentique (Delightful), Crate Paper (Emma's Shoppe), Bazzil Basics (Vintage Marketplace), and Thickers & Bella Blvd (Alphas).
I really wanted to put the Dear Lizzy Jars to use but I was never sure what to do with them. I remembered having this picture in my stack of photos. I've always thought my daughter looked like she was dreaming, making a wish, or looking to the future. That's when I came up with the idea of putting 'wishes' into the jar and making a list of wishes that my husband and I have for our daughter. I made the confetti using the bits that fell out of my scallop dot edge punch. I scattered the confetti to make it appear as if it were flying out of the jar.
And what's a challenge without a good prize? The above kit from Peace, Love, & Scrapbooking is what's up for grabs! Isn't it beautiful? If you'd like to win it - come play along with us. In addition for a chance to win this beautiful kit - we have a SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT. The person for this challenge who is chosen as the DT's favorite will earn a spot as a GUEST DESIGNER for the June 1st reveal. Such a great opportunity! What are you waiting for? ;)
Come play along with us!
Also - feel free to "like" us on Facebook.
Hope to see you soon!
