Banana Split

Okie Doke!  This week at Paper Vineyard, we were challenged to create a project inspired by the Banana Split pictured above.  Couldn't you just jump through the screen right now and gobble that up???  What I love the most about this banana split is the color palette!!!  I never thought I would EVER say that about ANY banana split!!!   These colors are just so inspiring!!!  So I created:

DON'T YOU JUST LOVE IT!!!???!!!  Honestly, I wasn't planning on creating anything as my plate is sort of full for the month, but Bo Bunny arrived at the store and I just couldn't help myself.  I was ALLLLLLLL over it!  I bought ALL the papers from the Et Cetera line (plus the buttons and trinkets) and then MOST of the papers from the Double Dot Designs!!!  These lines are AMAZING!!!  There were also goodies from the new Christmas line, but I finally had to stop looking and walk away.  OMGosh, these lines ROCK!!!  So along with the color palette, the cherry on the banana split also caught my eye.  I remembered that I had purchased some cupcake stickers the last time that Els of Elizabeth Craft visited the store and taught some classes.  And, of course, with the right Glitter Ritz glitters, this project would EASILY come together to match the colors of that yummy, yummy dessert!!!  I ended up using a silver rhinestone brad to pull the whole thing together because I didn't have gold cupcake stickers (and they'll certainly have to wait now cuz I just bought a ton of Bo Bunny!!!), but I think it all looks quite nice together.  Whew... this was a GREAT one!!!  Click HERE to check out what the rest of Paper Vineyard's design team created.  It was definitely a fun challenge!!!
