Make it Monday #311

It's been ages since I made something for a Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge but I really wanted to color these tulips for the 30 day coloring challenge and I decided to make it work for this week's Make it Monday Challenge too :)

I didn't have a ton of "other papers" to choose from, I used to have a couple books for ripping up, but I'm guessing they didn't make the cut last summer when we moved because I couldn't find them anywhere, so I used a coffee sleeve and a paper doily for my different papers. I stamped the jar and flowers with black memento ink on Neenah solar white cardstock and colored them with Copics (there are about 10 shades of pink on those flowers!) and fussy cut them out. I die cut the coffee sleeve with the Mix & Mat Pretty Brackets and then layered that, the doily, and the flower jar together. I stamped my background on Rustic Cream Cardstock and assembled everything. I finished it all off with some twine and a stamped sentiment before I adhered it to a Kraft Card base.

I'm deeply in the middle of fighting a losing battle with Bree's hair. She has really fine, kind of thin hair and she has a chunk of it that will. not. stay. out. of. her. face. It drives me crazy, she won't wear hair clips or headbands for long so I've been trying extreme hairstyles since she started school with the hope that at least one of them will keep that chunk of hair out of her face for the whole school day. no such luck. I've french braided pig tails, I've done two french higher french braids that meet the rest of her hair in the back for a pony tail, Today I did a french braid little crown but by the time we walked in to her classroom it was already coming out. I really don't want to cut her hair, It took a long time to come in and it's still not long or thick but it's maddening. 😏
