Challenge Me Monday!! Blue Skies

This Monday the challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is to use clouds and the color blue.

The other day while I was feeling the joy of folding laundry (insert sarcasm) I was watching the Gypsy A to Z video that I won months ago. I don't get too much tv time but since my baby was sleeping and my hubby was watching the NBA I decided that it was time to watch it. It is an awesome video!! It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a pro, it is so helpful!! Two things I loved specifically was the tutorials on doing borders and lace... Oh the lace... is too amazing, I'll share later. You'll see why I talk about Gypsy A to Z soon.

I did a layout of my daughter when she wakes up. 
I never wake her up unless is getting late because she wakes up so moody. I always wait until I hear her talking because that means that she is no longer moody. 

The butterflies are stamps from Close To My Heart 
and I connected them with doodles. 

Here is what I learn in the video. How to do borders and how to make them look good and not just do a line with things. 
I used my Gypsy to do the cloud border 
with Simply Charmed. The sun is also from this cart 
and I used just one layer and I stamped the face with my Peachy Keen Stamps the Wide Eyed Kids Assortment.

For the Title I used Cherry Limeade and for 
the "&" I used Rock Princess. 

This little bird is also from Cherry Limeade 
and the grass border also with the Gypsy technique using Paper Dolls Everyday.

I hope you liked my layout as much as 
I love the Gypsy A to Z!!
Take Care

I love all the details in your layout. Great use of the PK stamp for the sun. Great paper choices.
Cute story about your "moody" little princess, it sounds very familiar. I have a few here @ home, too. So funny, I wait until I know the coast is clear.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and I look forward to seeing more of your creations.
