Bee Happy

Hey, it's Friday!  This week has absolutely flown by and I am SO ready for the weekend, how about you?  Today I'm using a couple of sets from Taylored Expressions that I haven't used in quite some time, but seeing them in the TE booth at CHA made me itch to get them inky!  I started by stamping the bees and beehive from Garden Party Critters in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic markers.  The circle accents is a flower from Garden Party Blooms and I stamped it in Yellow Ochre Fluid Chalk Ink.  I used both the Medium Scallop Border and Scalloped Eyelet Border dies for the scallops along the edges and added the branch from the Birds & Branch die set so my bee hive didn't look like it was just floating there.  The papers are Stella & Rose Gertie by My Mind's Eye.  I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch 11 for the layout, which is so super cute!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!
