WHOOPS! Scrap Around the World

This month at Scrap Around the World it was all about rainbows and bright colors which totally dragged me out of my comfort zone but here is my layout WHOOPS!
 This was the color palette and sketch we had to follow this month
I turned the sketch sideways and scrapped one of my favourite pics of my granddaughter Lilly. This photo was taken on the day of my mom's funeral. We were in the backyard of my mom's house and trying to relax after the burial. We gave the girls free reign to play and they chose the water hose as their toy of the day. Well needless to say Lilly lost!
She managed the impossible and managed to make me smile on such a tough day. I love her expression! I divided the page into a grid and painted all the embellies according to the rainbow.
A mix of Prima flowers in the same colors as the grid rainbow.
 
I even tried to keep the title consistent! I have to admit this was hard for me as I am not used to bright colors but I gave it a shot.  Hope you enjoyed! I am somewhat distracted these days as I am awaiting the arrival of my fourth grandchild a boy! He is due now and I worry about my daughter as she has had many complications with this pregnancy one of them being a huge kidney stone which is causing her great pain and kidney infections. I apologize if I seem way out there but my thoughts are with her and little Jax. In the meantime I will trudge on! All the best and TFL! :)
