Life has its ups and downs ~ Creative Belli Challenge #88 ~ Color Spray

Good morning everyone!!!  My internet was giving me all kinds of fits last night and this morning!!  The lap top out in the scraproom is fine, but the one in the house just wouldn't let me get on for anything!!  I don't know what I did, but I finally got on!!  Must of wore it down......... 
Anyway on with this weeks Belli Challenge #88 - COLOR SPRAY - this can be a home made mixture, Glimmer Mists, Walnut Ink sprays, a bottle filled with hairspray, reinker, and Pearl Ex, or even airbrushing with your Copic markers - whatever you desire! And look at these cute images from this weeks sponsor Stampin Boutique!!  They have some adorable digis, so go check them out okay!!!!!  I decided to use this sweet Carousel Horse(s)to use on my carousel (anyway I hope it looks like a carousel) and use these cute photos of little GS Colten, taken by Laura Kay Wootan at The Smile House in San Marcos, Texas.  The bottom photo was just toooooo cute to pass up, so I went ahead and bought it... Little Colten's mother decided not to get it, I think mainly because she didn't want my DD her DH to see it...  But I think it's adorable...  Colten was having a "bad" morning at first, but then he warmed up to Laura and she got some precious photos!!!! Anyway, I thought the up and down motion of the carousel and the ups and downs of life were appropriate for this layout...  I hope you like it!!
Here's what I used:
SU Chocolate Chip CS
My Minds Eye ~ Breaking Free Cowbunga ~ Summertime Boy
My Minds Eye ~ Breaking Free Adventure Series ~ Four Miles Stripe
SU Kraft CS ~ Sprayed with
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ~ Copper
Stamping Boutique ~ Carousel Horse(s) ~ colored with
Copics and sprayed with
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ~ Pearl  and added some
Stickles

SU Blue Bayou CS

MS 3 Dot Border Punch
Thickers ~ Jewelry Box Glitter Letters

Be sure and check out the other Belli Gals projects!!  And then we would love for you to play along with us and make something out of the color mist!!  Be sure and upload it to Mr. Linky so that we can all see it!!!

Fern…first of all love the distressed edges (I lost my MM distresser and need one yesterday, lol).
Are the brown and black ribbons two or one? Love the texture.
Then the horses, the pearls, more ribbon the pics...another stunning layout.
Thanks so much for sharing your work!

Fern... love the carousel! Very creative of you!! But I have to say... love the bottom picture!! That is one to treasure... they grow up way too quick and some day they will look back and wish he was still clinging to him when he is too busy with his friends!! That is precious!! And as always, amazing use of embellishments!!
