I absolutely love how this layout turned out! I struggled a bit with my color choices by it quickly came together when I found several papers from an old Martha Stewart Scrap Pad I had laying around. They work perfectly with the pictures don't they?! The only thing I am regretting is the yellow flower brads. After I had them in place I had a D'oh moment and thought I should of used rain drops instead! Oh well!
I love this cute little umbrella that was a last minute add. I cut out a circle in my patterned paper and them cut in in half. Then using a border punch I punched along the flat side to give it the scalloped look. I then added some stitching and a button to the top. The handle was a pin that I threaded some beads on and then added underneath the umbrella top. Turned out perfect if I do say so myself!
