Sunshine & sandcastles (& a coupon)

Hey guys & happy FRIDAY!
In exactly one week, my sweet Leah will graduate from elementary school. She has made us so very proud these past 6 years & she amazes us constantly with her strength, kindness & wisdom. She has had an awesome experience at  her school & hates to leave. And I constantly find myself wondering, where has the time gone?!?!!

Anyway, I do have a layout to share today. I played along with the current challenge at Scrap Our Stash  which is to make a monochromatic layout & to use at least 5 pre-made embellishments.
Obviously I chose to go monochromatic with the color yellow/gold. 
   I started by pouring yellow mist on my cardstock & letting it run all over. I then splattered mist around the page. I went through my paper scraps to find yellow! My five embellishments are:
1. sequins
2. washi tape (gold dot)
3. journal sticker (from Crate Paper)
4. doily (Martha Stewart)
5. "shine" die cut (Heidi Swapp)

I love using my stash so this was a fun challenge for me to play along with!  I also used 4 different punches on my smaller scrap papers!
