Hope Your Day is Full of Smiles

Today is an Inspirational Day for Claudia & Company and the Design Team has some wonderful projects to share with you.  Today I made a scene with Twirl Anya.

I colored Anya with copics and cut her out (cutting off the pinwheel she was holding as well).  In place of her pinwheel, I added a toothpick that was cut at the ends and made my own pinwheel.  I have a brad holding the pinwheel together and it is going through the background, so it does turn, but it doesn't spin because there isn't enough room behind it for the brad to move freely :(  I should have put the scene panel on dimensionals and then it would have spun.....oh well, live and learn.  The grass is cut with a border punch, the clouds were cut free hand and the little flowers in the grass were cut out from one of the patterned papers.  The papers are all October Afternoon, from both the Detours and the Farm Fresh collections.  The sentiment is from So Random Sentiments and I highlighted the word smiles with a copic.  

I hope you enjoyed my project....I know I had a lot of fun making it!
