Friends Are The Sunshine Of Life Layout

 Good morning to all!  First off, I want to apologize that I have not visited your blogs much this week.  My mom has been ill and I've been stopping by her house every day after work and spending the evenings with her.  I hope to be able to catch up with everyone over the weekend.
It's Friday and time for a new challenge over at Frosted Designs, and it's to use a quote on your project.  I created this layout which I want to put in a 12 x 12 frame. 
 The September sponsor for Frosted Designs is Robyn's Fetish Stamps and More. The designers were given digi stamps to use on our projects.  I used her cute Daisy Days digital stamp on my layout.  To be honest I have never used a digital stamp before.   What was the hardest for me was how would I color my image.  I don't have a nice set of markers, so I opened the stamp in my PhotoShop program and went to town with the paint option.  After I added  my colors, I texturized the image to make it look like canvas.  I printed out two copies, as I wanted to cut out portions of the image and give Daisy some dimension with some pop up dots.
All of the papers and flowers on my layout are from the Little Yellow Bicycle Clothesline collection.   I purchased the picket fence at Michaels.  I dug into my stash of trims and used some eyelet lace that I accented with some colored pearls, and also added some yellow lace trim around the sun.
I used my new Melody Ross Chip Art tools that I won from Paper Crafts Magazine blog on the oval frame.  
Don't you just love those cute little flowers on the frame?
I also used the new Fiskars grass border punch.   Fiskars has several  new border punches out and A Cherry On Top had a promo, buy 2, get one free.  Besides the grass punch, I bought their new postage stamp and notebook border punches. Just loving all my new toys!

Thanks for stopping by!

Debbie, I am so sorry that your Mom is ill but I hope that she is on the mend. I know how stressful that can be!

But, wowee, look at that adorable layout. How clever of you to use your Photoshop. No need to buy markers but I'm sure this might be a future purchase, huh? Your Daisy is adorable with all her layers. I couldn't wait to see what your something different was going to be and was pleasantly surpirsed! Hope the weekend is a little more stress free.
