You brighten my day!

Another week, another challenge! This weeks Atlantic Hearts sketch looks like this:

I kept looking and looking at this and thinking what I could do with it. I could just make 4 simple squares but I wanted to do something a bit more and then it came to me!! (at 3am, while I was awake feeding Bethany!) A window frame!! I had to refrain myself from getting up and getting a piece of paper and a pencil to sketch my idea out, because with mommy brain, you never know if it will be there in the next 10 min or not! But I went back to bed and the next day during nap time ( yes both girls napped at the same time! A rare thing in this house!) I came up with this:

As you can tell, I'm obsessed with the Dream Pop paper! That's all I've been working with since I got it a couple weeks ago! The base page is one of the patterns from the paper pack, the flowers were cut from the cricut artiste cartridge in a variety of sizes. And because I also LOVE vinyl, I added a couple of vinyl flowers I had on hand as well. A friend makes vinyl for scrapbooking and pretty much anything else you want to put vinyl on. Check out her blog, Cut your Way
I wanted the layout to look like the sun shining in on some flowers in the window. It kind of looks like that right? And of course I had to add some washi tape, because what layout is complete without washi tape? 
I'm also linking this page to the CTMH Heart 2 Heart challenge blog for the May flowers challenge. This is my first time submitting to that challenge, so I'm excited!

I hope you enjoy!
