Madison, When Life Gives You Lemon's Make Lemonade

The challenge was to use a fruit, or fruit colors, and make a layout using them. I chose "Lemons", since I wanted to use this photo of my granddaughter Madison, and the face she made reminded me of someone who had just taken a drink of something sour!

I used a lot of my older stash to make this layout, including the black "Makin Memories" stickers, the background green pattern paper, and the lemonade die cuts! It always feel's great, to use thing's that I have had for a long time.  
The lemon featured in the top right hand corner, was really a refrigerator magnet, that I removed the magnet from. The tag was supposed to be a gift tag, but I just dressed it up with a few drink stickers, and then added the journaling block, and pipe cleaner. 
The "bling" squares on this layout came off a Christmas  ornament, that I had bought just for that purpose.  It probably had over 50 of the square's, on it for $1.00! I just peeled them off the ornament, and then stuck them right on my page, they didn't even require anymore adhesive!
To make the banner I actually used part of some previous packaging, that I cut into strips.  The part that I used was the portion that showed you which patterns were included in the packages.  

The journaling reads: On vacation in Florida, Madison had just taken a big drink, when we snapped this photo!  I love the look on her face, it was priceless! 

I hope you enjoyed this layout today! Happy Scrapping, Love Penny
