For the Love of Lemons: Painted Odds & Ends

Theme Kit

For the Love of Lemons
Part 6: Painted Odds & Ends
Today I have for you the next installment of the series - this set is based on the original lemon painting I did, which led to the creation of the "For the Love of Lemons" series.  As always, the kit was created at 300 ppi, papers are 12x12, and other elements are png files.  Drop shadows are for preview purposes only (though some shadowing inside the boxes is part of the design itself.)  Included are 4 papers (lemons on canvas, lemons on vellum, grungy yellow and grungy green), a yellow patterned ribbon, 3 bracket shapes, 2 boxes, a beaded chrome swirl, and a chipboard plaque with the lemon painting.  I enjoyed playing with many commercial use items in making this set, including FafBr's box action, Atomic Cupcake's cracked paint and chipboard actions, a chrome beaded swirl action very generously posted as a CU freebie by Lisa of Sophisticated Scraps and really fun grungy patterns by Obsidian Dawn.

Notes for the day:
Well, we made it through the dance recital!  The girls both did a great job.  My little Elena was the tiniest girl in the show - I overheard several people talking about how cute the "little one on the end" was.  She danced to "I'm a Ballerina" and "Dancing Cuddlebug." But, the poor girl developed a fever as the recital started, worsened quickly, but insisted on going through to the very end nonetheless.  What a little trooper!  (I did offer her the opportunity to go home several times...)  Lydia had a blast goofing around with her friends backstage, and looked so pretty in her genie costume for "Arabian Nights." Her other dance was all country - "What the Cowgirls Do."  Daddy videotaped the recital, and brought pretty bouquets for his little girls.  The recital kept them up way past their bedtime, so both were sound asleep when we arrived home.  Zzzz... 
Hugs to everyone,
