This is for the July color challenge. We had to use the colors of fire...red, orange, yellow and black. This is also for the sketch challenge on the Swirlydoos website.
This is made with alot of the July kit, "Summer Sorbet" from Swirlydoos. The pp is Bo Bunny "Love Shack", the shaped chipboard is Bo Bunny that I painted and stamped with the Opus, Prima stamp, the fancy scroll diecut, the compass stamp, the rub-ons and the sketch were from this kit. The cardstock and the game spinners were either from this kit or previous kits from Swirlydoos.
I also added a few Primas and used corrugated cardboard that I had in my stash. The font is from the Stone Script cartridge that I used glossy accents on....I really liked the effect. It kinda made them like the puffy Thickers. I inked, stamped and stickled the grungeboard bird. The fancy corner diecuts i purchased at the scrapbook expo held recently here in Orlando from a company called Scherenschnitte....they had some of the most gorgeous die-cuts. I forgot that I had them....found them looking through my stuff for something else...LOL
This is a photo of my brother Tim and my husband taken in July of 2007. This was taken while Tim was here on vacation just a few months before he had been diagnosed with cancer and as some of you may remember from a previous lo I did of him, he passed away about 5 months later. We spent the day visiting a museum, had a nice lunch al fresco at a nice restaurant downtown Orlando, then ended the day on the dock on Lake Apopka watching this beautiful sunset....it was indeed One Fine Day!
