Rainbow mom

Friends with Flair time again and it gave me a good excuse to use my new Unity set that arrived in the mail yesterday.  I have actually been battling what I think is a sinus infection this week, trying to get through it myself with no antibiotics (and lots of saline sniffing, lol) so the mojo has been a little lacking.

  I used The Shabby Tea Room challenge as inspiration:




I took the inspiration literally and I didn't sway much this time.  This is also for the CCEE challenge - butterflies; the Little Red Wagon challenge and the City Crafter challenge - mom.
Can't wait to use more of these fun images from this months kit.
