May 2016 Cherryland Challenge

Post by sherelm » Sun May 01, 2016 10:27 am

Story of the Two Princesses of Cherry Land

Once upon a time there were two princesses that lived in a faraway land – Cherry Land. One princess – Princess Maraschino– was very dutiful to the laws of Cherry Land, and heeded all warnings given by her subjects and court. The other Princess, Princess SourCherry wasn’t evil, but more spiteful, and always did things a bit unconventional.

May 2016
The princesses were on an outing with their parents, the King and Queen, to an art exhibit at the Cherryland Museum.  This was the first time the girls actually accompanied their parents on an official outing when they were invited.  They are grown now, so they need to take part in things to learn how to rule the kingdom, even though the King is a fairly young man yet and will probably rule for many more years. 
Walking thru the paintings (all the paintings are of a cherry theme of course) the King said to the Queen “I’ve a marvelous idea. Let’s allow the girls to each choose a painting for the castle.  The castle will one day belong to Princess Sour Cherry, but it would be nice to let them each choose one now.”   The Queen thought that was a great idea, especially since Princess Maraschino wouldn’t be excluded as she has better taste in the Queen’s mind.   Sour Cherry just chooses more modern eclectic paintings. 
So the girls were even more excited looking at the paintings, knowing each of them would be allowed to bring one back to their castle.  Every now and then, the Queen would try and steer them away from some of the less “castle appropriate” paintings, and yet the King would say “Dear, it’s their age, their style.  It’s time to relinquish the control.”  Surprisingly, when the choices were made – they were surprised at the two completely different, but surprisingly beautiful choices.

And here they are:
Princess Sour Cherry liked this one – with a tongue in cheek approach.  It’s a real cherry “Pi”.

Princess Maraschino chose this one –  called the Cherry Picker.  Softer colors, with many other colors included. 

Image

You do know what you have to do, don’t you?   Yes, let their painting inspire you.  No rules this time, just use colors, or even the numbers in Sour Cherry’s, or the dog in Princess Maraschino’s picture to do your layout.  An extra entry, though, if you do find a way to use the cherry red color in your layout! 

This may be combined with another challenge that allows it, and you will have until June 15th due to the NSD activities, Mother's Day, and Memorial Day this month.  Have fun!!

This is for the Princess Maraschino Challenge. Image
I was inspired by the soft colors and the vintage girl so I went with photos of the grandkids. For the bonus I used Cherry Red.

You amaze me Deanna how fast you can pull a layout together, and how well you do it!!  This is perfect for that layout, and your grandchildren on it, as well!!  Love the flower, and how you tucked so much under the spot, and still added stitching!!  Thanks for doing the challenge, Deanna!

I used the painting for Princess Maraschino as inspiration. I went with pics of me and the pups, using a cherry red cardstock for the die cuts. The rest of the layout is quite soft in colors.

combined it with Title Challenge

I chose Princess Sour Cherry where I used the yellow background as inspiration with a touch of red and green. I see others said the background was cream but it sure looked yellow on my computer!! That's my story and I'm sticking with it!!

Now why didn't I think of numbers on the football?  I did that layout of Joey, and never dawned on me to add the date there!!  What a great page, with lots of photos, my favorite - to add a lot of photos!!   And your word "Football" is pretty dang cool, too.  Thanks for playing!

Pretty darn cool title  - "Wish Season"!!  Oh how true that is, from presents, to the end of the year -regrets and hopes!  Love it.  I love the page itself, beautiful details!  Thanks for playing Deanna!

Looks yellow to me Chris, too!  I guess it has to do with a lot of things, the lighting we are each in, the tints of the computer screen, etc.  Even the pictures we choose!  But whatever it is, love your layout!  How did you do that cluster of hearts and swirls, yourself, a diecut, cricut??  Really cool!

Here's my page for the Sour Cherry challenge.  I chose to use cherry reds, 'real' cherries, cherries on the patterned paper, and my own cherries in the photos!
