M&M's Paper Posie Throwdown!!

ETA: I forgot to add that my camera is now getting fixed thanks to Lisa who told me that her sister had the same problem and Canon is fixing her's for free!! YAY!! so my daughter is graciously lending me her's while mine is in the camera hospital!

My friend Danielle is the host this week of the
Color Throwndown and she chose Cameo Coral, Tempting Turquoise and Kiwi Kiss or other similar colours.

I chose to use Prism Desert Coral Light, and then some Scenic Route patterned papers that had similar colours to Kiwi Kiss and Tempting Turquoise. I even added some M&M packaging! oh ya! Smiley from

My flower is a crinkle flower, made for last week's Ways to Use it Challenge, that I learned how to make in an on-line embellishment class taught by Tania Willis. I think it turned out beautifully, being as I made it partly from garbage!! haha!

Two of the layers are made from M&M peanut packaging. It was so pretty that I couldn't throw it out and it went so perfectly with the other flowers I was making!! So anything goes!!

On the flower is a Melon Berry button and the Melon Berry stamped sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Damask Designs. The large polka dots are from the stamp set Polka Dot Basics from Papertrey Ink and they were stamped in Fresh Snow ink also from Papertrey Ink.
