OUAS april: Congrats

Hi everyone! Happy easter sunday! 
How have you been? my mother excitedly told us today that she was promoted and I took a picture of her with her certificate without letting her know that I wanted to do a layout for her... and when i was searching for some inspirations for me to start my layout, I thought OUAS's theme for april does match, "An event that changed my life.."

My take:
It took me quite some time before deciding to use MME's follow your heart paper, wanted something bright for this happy layout :) I started the layout by applying gesso on my new stencil and sprayed some orange and pink mists till I was satisfied with the look.

 Another close-up shot on the layerings... camera doesnt seem to be able to focus on the flowers, guess I have to learn to use this camera oops. I cut some of the flowers from one of the patterned papers, layering it with the buttons. My recent favourite technique to finish a layout, punching and sticking mini flowers all over the page where I think is empty :)

Products used:
MME - follow your heart "Be happy" striped paper
Miss caroline - Howdy Doody "Lovely" mums paper
The sweetest thing - Tangerine "Sunshine" blossom paper 
follow your heart "Be amazing" honey blue paper 
Chipboard elements - the sweetest thing honey collection
Sprays - Adirondack - "Sunset orange"
Mister Huey - "First kiss"

My take: 

  We were passing by orchard where we suddenly saw this cute macaron stand and thought it looks really sweet and cute!
