Cherry goodness!

I just had to use this adorable cherry print paper by Cosmo Cricket and so the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch for this week was the perfect way to get some of it used up. This is Kazan's sketch #32.The two prints are actually both sides of this piece.
The journaling spot is from a package by Jenni Bowlin. It had a white center and I wanted it to match better so I just brushed it with a couple colors of chalk stamp pads.
The cherries are cut out of the patterned paper. I coated the cherries with Aleene's Paper Glaze for a nice, epoxy look. I also added a little dot of White 3-D Fashion paint by Tulip.
This piece was added to the card front with foam tape. I use a roll of foam tape by 3M, I actually need to take out stock in the company for how much of this stuff I use!
Now to a photo I just had to share!
While at Disneyland, we came across a parade that we hadn't know was going to happen. My daughter put our grandson on her shoulder so he could get a good view and you can see in his face how much excitement this brought him. He was pointing at everything!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
