Hello Sunshine Layout by Mendi

Hello Doodlebugs!  It's Mendi here today and I can't wait to share my layout with you today!  I don't know about you, but I am ready for some sunshine and rainbows and Doodlebug's newest Hello Sunshine collection makes me feel so good!   :)
To create my rainbow feature I cut a piece of printer paper to the size I was needing and then cut it in half, down the middle.  I then proceeded to cover each side with 1/2 inch strips of the fun patterned papers from the collection.  I started with my orange strip which I could line up on both sides by running it from corner to corner on my piece of printer paper.  After that, all the other strips just fell into place.  When I was done I trimmed off the excess and taped them back together on the back, stitching them with coordinating colors of thread.
I have a confession... I am addicted to Doodle Pops!  I sort of hoard them, but I decided it was time to use them and I love how this darling vase looks paired with a darling bumblebee sticker from the icon sticker sheet.  To give my little bee some dimension, I cut off his antennas, popped up his body with foam tape and then slid the antennas back under his body, adding some fun sprinkles as an accent.
I am also loving the versatility of the new paper frills--I know I am going to get so much use from them and with their new style, I can see myself mixing and matching them with other Doodlebug collections as well! To finish off my layout I added 3 little flower sprinkles topped with more sprinkles for their centers.  Aren't they fun?
Make sure to keep checking back for lots more inspiration from this adorable collection!  I know you are going to fall head over heals with it!
