Got Any Nuts in Your Family?

I am sure everyone would probably answer "yes" to that question! And if you ask my family, I am sure they would say me! I mean, after all, who else gets excited about paper? And little embellishments smaller than a dime? Yep, that's you I'm talkin' about too!  :)

One of the new October releases at Whimsie Doodles is this adorable digital image called Family Nuts. I printed it out on X-Press Copic Blending cardstock and then colored in using Copic markers. I added some sparkle to the acorns with my Spica Glitter pens, but of course the photo doesn't want to show you that!
I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #75 for my layout, turning it on its side, and moving the large panel over a smidge. I also changed the sentiment placement to fit with my design.
My designer paper is from My Mind's Eye Ooh La La Collection. I used two ribbons: Orange Gingham and Jungle Satin (not currently available) and Kaiser Pewter Pearls from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Silk leaves, a button tied with string and it's ready to mail -- to one delightful family member!
