Used this LO for multiply challenges today...

1st over at Lasting Memories they are using paint/mist on their projects.

I used paint to color the cork stars and like everything I paint, I like to see the background a little bit as well.

2nd over at CSI Case File 255: I used the color blues and pink and stars and the "sparkle" aspect of the picture.

3rd over at Scrapourstash  used this picture as inspiration. This is my Dad and daughter and I just love how happy they look in this photo!!
And the stash items I used were the following...
F - faux stitching
A - adhensive and/or arrows from the stamp
T - tags
H- heart
E - Ephemera/Embellishments
R - Rubber date stamp

Here's my LO and take on the three challenges...
