GCD Studios Blog Hop - Sunny Days

It is gloomy and raining at my house today, so I was grateful for some Sunny Days!! I love the bright colors and I love that the "B" side offers a coordinating shade of solid paper.

One of my favorite ways to use patterned paper is to create flowers so that I always have the perfect matching embellishment for my layouts. I had so much fun making all of these lollipop flowers! I dug into my stash of brads to create easy centers for the flowers.

I decided to use the hole punch that I have in with my office supplies. I love the perfect little circles mixed in with the hand cut unevenness of the larger circles.

I hope that you are having a sunny day!! Head over to Renee's blog to see what she's up to! Happy hopping!!
