First Candy Apples

Here is the complement to the last layout I did. Here I used the remaining piece of Calypso Hope, on the bold patterned side this time. I placed that on top of Limeade Green Cardstock and covered the edges with the "play, dance, laugh" ribbon. I used one of the Calypso Cut Outs to create my tittle. With "first candy" with the mini alphabet rub-ons and "Apples" in the Sew Simple Cardstock letters. I added some rub-on dragonflies and a branch that looks watermarked!

Calypscile is now available to purchase!

I used so many elements of the kit for this page. I started with the solid apple red cardstock and put a strip of Calypso Hope in the center and pictures above and below. I cut the tickets and journal box out of the Calypso Cut Out page. Then I used the cardstock Sew simple letters for Benny Birch and then (it's hard to see in the photo) but used the candy shoppe rub-ons for the birthday party 2009. Lastly I added two flowers and a brad, just to hide the fact that one of my letters was over top of one of the words. The new collection is now online and can be purchased at Created With Paper!
