Hello :) This layout is from LOAD1016 Day 6: challenging you to make a paper-pieced embellishment. That I did, pinwheels was a suggestion and that is what I went with :)
These were pictures from the summer last of the flowers we bought to dress up the flower bed out back. Of course we have to stop at times and play with Buddy :) The pinwheels was a fun embellishment to make and thought it gave a whimsical look to the layout. I used last month's counterfeit kit: Flower Power for this, it's also one from the 100 Patterned Paper Challenge and I had used 4 papers for the layout.
I had also used a sketch for the layout. When I had seen this sketch I knew I had to use this pattern paper:
This sketch is from The Memory Nest: Make it Monday No. 73. All I did was flip it to left for the starting on the banner. I used 3 photos inspired by one of the designers had done.
The journaling I put directly on the layout :) It was a pretty good day :)
