A Note from Cristina
The inspiration for the colors I used on this page was drawn from the photo, in particular the green and orange of my t-shirt. I didn't really have anything in my supplies that matched those colors, so I created my own palette. In addition to green and orange, I chose pink and blue, and colored some of the circles on my background paper using watercolors; I customized the mistable embellishments with the same colors. Then I added some silver accents to have some sparkle.
Our last night together. Making the most of the time we have. I feel so blessed. June 19, 2013.
September Fun Fact
Summer has flown by especially fast for me this year.. but I am looking forward to the cooler weather! But with the fall approaching, it also means that I need to start working on the yearly calendars I give to my family as Christmas gifts!
