you are my sunshine

I hope you enjoyed the blog hop yesterday.  It is so fun to check out everyone's work.  The TeamWorks girls are all so talented.

Here is what I have for you today.  I took this photo of my granddaughters one night this past fall.  It is so hard to get them in a photo together with both looking at me and smiling.  Sugar Pie (aka Dinara) just doesn't stay still for long.

I was scrapping with my friend Jacque and she was finishing off a layout that featured a sun burst and when I pulled out this photo and thought about a title it came to me, I needed to try to make my own sun burst as these two girls are my sunshine.  I used Studio Calico papers from Take Note.  These double-sided papers gave me the flexibility to make the burst.  I used Marvy Uchida punches for the circle, scalloped circle and McGill punches for the heart and tag.  I stamped the frogs with a Stamps of Life frog stamp on patterned papers from the 6x6 paper pad and cut them out.  The "notes" card is from Lily Bee and the alphas are Sn@p.  I inked almost everything with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and used  red and kraft scraps to mat my photo.  

Go get happy and scrappy,
