These photos were taken in a photo booth a Joel's middle school graduation. The booth operator needed a sample and asked Leah and I if we wanted to be models. Of course we did! We had a lot of fun hamming it up.
I decided I wanted to scrap them for the White With 1 February challenge - celosia orange. I just love that colour.

I didn't have any paper in the right shade of orange and decided to do a watercolour background with Twinkling H2Os. They're just as easy to use as ordinary watercolours, but dry with a lovely twinkle.
The rest of the background is just some stamping and the rest was a matter of digging through my orange embellies.
I didn't have a lot of flowers in the right shade either, so they got a colour change with Twinkling H2Os too. Paper flowers tend to go flat when they are wet and you can avoid that by drying them with a heat gun and give them a few squeezes while drying.
I love the cursive word stickers, but the one I wanted to use was the wrong colour. Here is a cool way to cheat your way to the perfect title! You will need:
♥ cursive word to copy
(also try handwriting or printing out a word in a cool font)
♥ Liquid Pearls
Place the acetate over the word and trace it with the Liquid Pearls. Even pressure is the key. I squeezed quite hard. If you mess up, wipe it up with a baby wipe and try again.
Then just let it dry and cut around the word. Since acetate is see-through, you don't have to go too close to the letters, just cut an even border all around it. I've learned that round lines are a lot less noticeable than sharp corners, so keep your cutting lines curvy.
Now attach it with some tiny dots of glue here and there and you're done.
