Oh, Oh, Oh!

Be glad I didn't put it on the post title but here it is anways... "Let's go Fly a Kite"... I have been singing this for weeks.  My DH and myself just watched "Saving Mr. Banks" and the music from Mary Poppins is fantastic and had me singing bits and pieces.

Why am I singing that?  The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to use the Simon Says Stamp Exclusives products.  I have the sweetest set with kite stamps and dies.  I decided to create a layout of my youngest with Mary Poppins at Disney.

I love these sweet kites from Simon Says Stamp and they fit the theme of my layout perfectly.

I splattered Abandoned Coral and Cracked Pistachio in the background to create my soft pallette which mirrors the colors in he photo.

I used the scrap form my dies to create some nice puffy clouds with embossing paste.  I heated them up to dry which acutlaly adds a puffiness to the embossing paste.

Products: Simon Says Stamp - Let's Go Fly a Kite Die & Stamp, Ranger Distress Stain Spray -  Cracked Pistachio, Simon Says Stamp - Rain Rain Go Away, Ranger Distress Dye Ink - Cracked Pistachio, Abandoned Coral,  Watercolor Pencils,  Ranger Distress Stain Spray (Abandoned Coral ),  Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste,   Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black, Simon Says Stamp - Love Note
