Fairy Sweet.....Reflections....Blog Hop...Glitz Challenge!!!!!

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great Friday! Thanx so much for stopping by today....We have a fun blog hop going on for SOUS.....you will have so much fun visiting all the fun blogs and seeing all the creative stuff our DT has in store for you....and a bit of candy as well!
For this weeks challenge we had a sketch by Beggahuna and some fantastic Glitz papers to create with~ We all used the same sketch and the Maya collection for our layouts this week...I love to see what different ideas each of us have when using the same products...so much fun. My submission is a double layout of my grand niece and nephew.....Fairy Sweet Reflections of my little sweeties, Donny and Carsyn.
For Carsyn's page I used the hot pink as my accent color choosing to use the dark blue for the background on both pages. The fun green paper was a perfect complement to the pinks and blues~ I used my photo impact to make the pics b/w and add the pink to make her little tutu and flower pop.
The large circle is from Lyrical letters, the photo mats from A Child's Year and accented with pearl paint.
I fussy cut the flowers from one of the patterned papers from the collection, spritzed with glimmer mist and then added some silks in the soft green and hot pink. I used 2 MS punches for the centers and the leaves. The font is from Lyrical Letters.
The wings and butterflies are from Sentimentals and are accented with adhesive pearls as are my flower centers.
For Donny's layout I used some of the bold green and striped papers along with the patterned green and blue paper. My train, tracks, tree and fence are all from My Community.
My sun is from Graphically Speaking the clouds from Zoobaloo. The dragon is cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and and it's wings from Indie Art. The train and dragon represent the toys Donny is playing with in the sweet photos.
I chalked the fence with lots of yellow to fade the pink to more of an orange....matches his shirt so well!
Once again my circle and font from Lyrical Letters.
Hope you enjoyed what I've created this week. I will have a bit of surprise candy available to a random winner so please leave a comment to be eligible for that!!!
Now hop on over to Nanne's Blog....I know you will love what you will see there!!!!
