Favourite Quote - Crop Suey Challenge

Hello, HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! I am so happy this week is over. It has been one CRAZY week. With a stressed out boss, Parker sugar's high/lows because of a growth spurt, stress at work, and still fighting a sinus infection I am SOOOOO happy it's Friday!

So with that being said it is also time for a new challenge over at Crop Suey! This challenge is about your favourite quote. I have many and couldn't decide on which one to use so I picked a pic of Parker and went with the quote that best suited the picture. I also wanted to use some new embellishments that I made on this page so this is what I came up with. Not sure if all the elements work with the picture but I like how it turned out.

The flower was so easy to make. I was inspired by Prima's flowers (see picture of blue flower) and thought that I could make my own since they are a little too expensive for my wallet. So I drew out three different sized flowers with thich petals (5 petals) cut them out and then rolled the petals to form the point. Then I used some dimensional foam stickers between each layer and punched a hole in the middle using my crop-o-dile. I had some stamens and taped some together and put them through the hole and adhered the back of the stamens to the flower. Used some stickles for some sparkle and that was it. Easy peasy!  Also made some more of the butterlies and love how they turned out. Got to use some old paper I had and lots of scraps.
