Totally Hip

Good Tuesday morning! It is feeling like summer again here in the NorthEast; 80 degrees yesterday and in the 70's today. My poor mums are so confused; they like the cool weather and don't know whether to pop open or not! You can see them in the picture that I used for a challenge over at  Use Your Stuff. This is a fun new blog that my friend, Lynne, contributes to. For this challenge, you had to use Orange, Pink, Green, Yellow and Blue all in the same layout. My DD dressed as a hippie for Halloween last year and her costume had just about every color in it! I used paper from the We R Memory Keepers Nonsense stack that was a perfect match to her costume, embossed the orange paper with the Cuttlebug Bloom Dots folder and inked it, then added a transparency flourish (I think from Fancy Pants?) and a few retro buttons from my stash. I cut the flower shape on the Silhouette by enlarging it to 10" and then used the cutting tool in the software to chop it in half before actually cutting it out. I can't wait for the 12" Silhouette to come out to be able to cut full 12" shapes! Hope everyone has a Terrific Tuesday!
