Teddy Bears' Picnic Layout - GD Lasting Memories

This was one of those perfect summer days. I biked to the park with my daughter in the bike trailer and enjoyed a beautiful day at the Teddy Bear's Picnic. My daughter liked the stage shows the best - highland dancing and bagpipes, ballet, drums, etc. She was drumming my head and doing ballet moves all over the place. The MASH tent line was too long so we checked out some smaller tents and the police car (middle picture of the layout).

I chose three pictures from our day to make a layout for Lasting Memories as their guest designer. This week's theme is ink splatter and mixed alphas. I splattered the paint but then also painted the center of the doilies and the chipboard circle for contrast.

I chose a fun sketch from STUCK?! Sketches.

This month's challenge is paired with Scrap Our Stash challenge #30.
I used the following:
L - letters
A - abandoned coral paint
Y - year
E - eyes (google eyes on the bears)
R - ribbon
S - stripes
Paint - Tim Holtz Distress Paint Abandoned Coral
Blue Paper - DCWV: Violet Lear Stack
Stripe Paper - Sei: Lovebirds - starry eyes
Ribbon - Scrapabilities
Doilies - Michael's
Chipboard - DCWV: Green Stack Chipboard
Letters - Thickers: American Crafts
Thanks for stopping by!
