March to the Beat of Your Own Drum

Hello, lovely blog followers! Today I have a mixed media layout to share with you that brings back so many wonderful memories for me.  The photo is from our Disney trip last year (which was a complete surprise to my nephew). It was really the best trip ever.  Also, growing up, my great -grandparents had peacock feathers decorated everything!  Now, that may have been a bit of an overkill, but now, peacock feathers always make me smile.  These feathers started off as plain chipboard, and I added lots of inks and mists to create their coloring.

Thanks for stopping by!

Maybe you hoard pre-made flowers. Maybe you hoard flower punches or dies. Maybe you hoard flower stamps. "Dig" out those flowers and use them on your project! There are some great prizes, so be sure to head over and get your entry in!
