AAA Challenge #7

Another fun challenge!
 Be sure to check out AAA Cards for the embossing and pink challenge.
 I started out creating a background with Distress Stain, Distress Stamp pads and watercolor paper.  When you spritz these with water, you never know what you are going to get but you can be pretty sure it is going to be wonderful.  
 I next took a doily die cut and instead of cutting it, I used an embossing pad so that the design embossed into my colored paper. Love the look! Those amazing flowers are from Wplus9 Designs, the banner is from My Favorite Things and I embossed that black ink, I love that that makes the black more intense and elegant.  Remember the Blue Moon Scrapbook store has lots of Ranger products and the prize this week at AAA Cards is from that store. 
Now for a few photos...
 This is what we did this week. So much fun and you can see he is pretty happy. It can't possibly be time for summer vacation, can it?
His mom, my daughter made this adorable treat for the class.  Cookie "french fries", red frosting "ketchup" and an adorable hamburger that is really a cupcake with a brownie center and frosting ketchup, mustard and lettuce.  A bunch of work and oh so cute!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
