Snail Races

I am slowly working my way to the end of Disney pages!  While this probably doesn't look like a Disney page it is!  It rained, again and my family took shelter at an area with tables. They discovered two snails and decided to have snail races!  The pictures were too neat to exclude so I scrapped them, it was kind of the mundane in the middle of the incredible!
This was such a fun layout to do!  I joined several challenges and will detail them at the end of the post!  I used the Lollydoodle paper as a striped paper, the pink polkadot is actually washi tape. The retired Milepost Embellishments were used for the arrows and stars except the pink one which I cut from the Lollydoodle paper on the Cricut with our Art Philosophy cartridge.  Leftover sequins from the Lollydoodle Card Workshop on the Go added a little pop of Pear! the pink dots are our totally fun Flamingo Dots, in three colors of pink and three different sizes!

I also used the Stamp of the Month for July for the title!  You can purchase it for $5 with a qualifying purchase, it's retail price is $17.95!  It is such an adorable set!

 Below I inked the stars with some Slate ink and embellished them with the Pear Sequins and with the Flamingo dots in the center plus a few extra pops of green with the scattered sequins!
Above I used a very useful technique with Washi tape!  I cut strips of White Daisy cardstock the same width as the pink polkadot Washi tape and applied the washi to it!  If I had not done this the washi tape would have been lost in the gray background paper!

 Below, I love my snail trail to the star with the Flamingo dots!
So I joined four different challenges for this layout!

The first one was Southern Girls Challenge to include circles!  I didn't do it in the obvious way but there are circles with the sequins, Flamingo Dots and on the washi tape!

The second was Scrap our Stash Challenge #16! We had a shopping list to shop our stash for and had to use 5 different things!  I used: Stars, enamel dots, sequins, washi tape, striped paper and arrows!

Last but definitely not least was the Sketch Challenge from Paper Secrets / Scrap and Play
plus an item to go with each letter of  Splash!
