Patricia Roebuck = Where You Are Now

I'm sharing a layout I did using Alphabet Junction.  Our friend, Merrin, was celebrating her birthday, and two of the other little girls who were born in the same Province in China got to come down and celebrate with us.  So that is why we call them "Spicy" girls because they were born in the Province of Hunan.
 I LOVE these colors...lots of complimentary colors.  So this layout was all about color and layers.  I cut out flowers with the Silhouette and layered those with the stickers from the collection.
Did lots of fussy cutting and layered those with more stickers and chipboard pieces around the photo...some messy mist splatters and stitching. 
I wanted to have one main photo of the girls playing dress-up...that photo was taken with my good camera.  The other two were taken with my iPhone...but I like to include more than one photo sometimes to tell the story.
Don't forget...leave a comment on each Design Team members blog for a chance to win a collection kit...you have 5 chances to win.  Good Luck!
