Challenge Inspiration: Sandi & Caroli!

Fan foldes flowers or rosettes are one of my favorite embellishment, I use them on almost everything so I really enjoyed this challenge. 

The pictures are from the celebration of our Independence Day that my little girl had at her Kindergarten last September 18th. That day all the children wore our typical dresses, danced our national dance called "Cueca" and ate some traditional food. All the parents were invited to wacht and participate in the celebration, it was such a lovely day :)

For this layout I used the beautiful collection Fresh Goods from Pebbles. I cut some rosettes using a cutting file and SCAL in my Cricut, and for the others I used the traditional method of scoring and folding. I embellised the rosettes with rhinestones, buttons, chipboard shapes and brads. I also added 2 toothpick flags and a little banner that says "Jardin Pasito a Paso", which is the name of the kindergarten of my little girl. The letters and numbers in blue are stickers from the same Fresh Goods, and I cut the foam number 18 was using my BigShot.

You can see more closeups of this layout in my blog, hopefully it will be a good inspiration for you to play along wit us in this challenge. Thank you for visiting us!


I think that fanfold flowers are so versatile....especially for boys pages (which I do alot!!) Depending on what you "top" them with, they can be frilly and feminine or cute or funky.  Here they work perfectly on this page with my son Adam and his boys, my grandsons Jacob and Cole decorating their tree last month.  My favorite picture is Cole placing the star on top of the tree.
