Sending you Sunshine ... again ;)

DeNami Product Challenge #08 calls for the use of Patterned Paper. 

I saw this cool technique back on April 5th over at the OWH Stars & Stamps Blog.  It's called Tutorial Pinwheel II, and step-by-step instruction are provided on how to create this design.   I'm not sure if you will agree, but I thought it would be perfect for this challenge.

The PP used is from the Watermelon Paper Sampler I got a couple of months ago from DeNami. 

Some of the items I used were picked up at the Expo in Milwaukee, WI on Saturday while working the DeNami booth with Nami and the gang.  Here is a picture of Nami in action with a captive audience.  I snuck this during a break.
Here is the picture of me and the gang before I left for the day.  Note:  I'm not really strangling the young man, he's being a comedian.
Lots of fun was had, along with some sore legs. LOL

I hope my design using this technique provides you with some inspiration to go forth and create.
