Marigold Girl Scrapbook Page

One of my all time favorite photos ! 
I submitted it for consideration as the
"Photo Of The Week" 
for our local newspaper
even though it was quite old.

It is a photo I will always cherish,
so glad to have snapped it back in the days before digital cameras !

I was thumbing through one of the many stacks of Die Cuts With A View
scrapbook paper pads I have (and have not used!!!!) when this
paper jumped out at me, perfect for this photo.
It seemed more suited for a little boy page, but the colors
worked well with this photo as do the words at the bottom.

I die cut the name out of Barely Banana card stock
from Stampin' Up! with my Cricut Create.
I NEED to get another font cartridge now
that I am using it finally! This font from the Don Juan cartridge
is going to get old , fast , ha , ha!

The marigold flowers were made by using a set
of scalloped circle dies from Cuttlebug, 
they are 4 varying sizes.
I cut them from Marigold Morning card stock.
I wrinkled and crinkled them, breaking the fibers
so I was able to tear the two layers apart, creating
a lighter paper than the thick card stock.
I then lightly inked Tangerine Tango on them.
They were stacked and glued together then smooshed 
some more, trying to replicate the look of a marigold.

The leaves were punched out of Lucky Limeade card stock
with a Martha Stewart punch.

The stems and base of the flowers were hand cut and formed.

They are quite bulky, but perfect for this photo.

The ribbon is a scrap from a grab bag I bought a long time ago
from a yard sale, no idea who the manufacturer is. 

Thanks for looking =)
