Fun in the Sun Collection: Flamingo Shadow Box by Kathy

Hi Everyone!  It's Kathy today with a fun décor project I created using the FABULOUS new Fun in the Sun Collection!  When I first saw this collection I knew I had about 1,000 pictures that would be perfect, but then I read the quote in the project and knew I had to use it!  Take a peek...

This shadowbox is made completely from paper!  The main body of the box is made from some Doodlebug Textured Cardstock in Lily White, I then set out to decorate it using all the fabulous goodies in the Fun in the Sun Collection!

Using my Silhouette, I cut the Flamingo and Palm Tree.  The B-side of the Flock of Flamingo's Paper was the perfect pink for my Flamingo!  I added in a little Cupcake Swiss Dot Cardstock to make the wing. I couldn't resist the sunglasses stickers from the Fun in the Sun Icons Sheet!  I added a couple of sprinkles from the Paradise Shaped Sprinkles to the edges.  The palm trees on the B-side of the Polka dot Party Paper were perfect to make the leaves of my palm tree along with some Limeade Swiss Dot Cardstock!!

By far my favorite new Doodlebug Product is the packet of Odds and Ends!  There are so many pieces to play with and add to embellishment clusters!  I used most of the flowers and leaves, as well as the sun & cloud.  I still have almost a full package!  They are fabulous!
My words were created using some Cupcake and Lily White Skinny Type Stickers.  I was so happy that this project looks like I had envisioned!  I can't wait to hang it on my craft room wall!  That's it for me today, be sure to stop by the rest of this week and all next week for more Fun in the Sun inspiration!  Thanks for stopping by to peek!
