3 in 1

I love it when you can combine multiple challenges on one it happened to be three challenges.  The lo is based on Sketch 228 from Pencil Lines.  I also incorporated two challenges from Club CK.  The first challenge is to use paint on your lo, which I used for the framing, by masking with paper and then painting with acrylic paint around the edge of the mask.  I also painted each of the fleur de lis (2 chipboard and one brad) with black acrylic paint.  The final challenge is using Green, Purple, and Yellow on your lo for the Weekly Challenge on Club CK.  The title letters are a mix of chipboard and I just embossed my yellow paper with the Cuttlebug and then glued the letters to the back and cut them out with the Craft Knife.  I grabbed some of the kids Mardi Gras beads and cut them up to use as a border at the bottom of the photos.  I made the mask, by cutting it with the Cricut, outlining with a black pen, cutting the feather shapes and adhering to the back, and using a toothpick for the wand.

Journaling reads -  Emma:  "I don't want to go to the parade!  It's noisy and loud!"
Mommy:  "Well, your noisy and loud, so you'll be ok!"
