lovin one layer!

ok so...i may have cheated...! :) 
i'm not sure, you be the judge when you see my project for the latest challenge over at lawnscaping: one layer!

it's no secret that i dread one layer cards. i don't have (please read: am scared to try) copics, i love embellishments, and honest, paper piecing is in my blood! lol! so when i came up with this idea for a project, i loved it!!!

and then i finished, and i thought...this could be cheating! lol!

so here is my project - a coloring book for my (soon-to-be) 4 year old little mann!

i made little scenes on each page with, precisely a gazillion lawn fawn stamps! ha ha! (my hands are still have a black tinge to them!) 
i added sentiments to help tell the story on each page, and even named them in my head! :)

flamingos and flowers

flying by

what's cookin?

gnome one like you

and rockin out!

here, i even tried masking for the first time! i have NO clue if i did it correctly, but it worked for me!

so that's it. no fancy coloring (like i know people can do SO well, and i'm jealous! honestly! i wish i was that good!! i'm just so intimidated!) but i sort of feel like i created this project with a loop hole! 

i hope it made you smile anyway! i know i had fun making it, and that my (almost) birthday will enjoy coloring it up! :)
