Let The Sunshine In Scrapbook Page

My cats loved it when sun would stream in the windows,
especially on cold winter days after we had a run of
cloudy days. I'm the same, let that sunshine in and bask in it!

This is my attempt at making a sunburst background
from scratch - and the first time I have ever made
a sunburst design on any craft project.

The papers, Top Note Die, button,
embossing folder and small scallop circle punch
were from Stampin' Up!

Ribbon and trims, Michael's

Sticker quote, unknown

This is the pattern I made to create the sunburst.
I tried and tried to make one on the old
electronic die cut machine I bought 
second hand, but I could not get it to work.
So, I put on my thinking cap,
used a pencil, ruler and eraser to make
this half pattern on a piece of drafting film.
I was going to make an entire 12 x 12 size pattern,
then decided why waste all the extra time when I
could just keep tracing this section.
I traced it onto patterned paper then
cut it out with scissors and
used double stick tape to adhere it
to a textured card stock background.

It's not perfect and was time consuming, 
but it worked well enough.

The pieces that were removed will be used
on a layout for another scrapbook.

Thanks for looking =)
