Photo Inspiration

Good morning and thank you so much for calling by to my blog.  Today there is a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments and as it was my turn to host I got to choose the theme.  I went with a photo inspiration and here is the photo:

I think I managed to use all the colours and then tried to make my flowers look like the picture:

I used Annabel Sweet Treat which is available here to purchase. I think I managed to use all the colours.  For the flowers I coloured the edges with Distress Markers to try and make them look like the sweets in the picture, also Annabel is sucking on a lollipop.  The papers are Nitwits From Laughter to Memories.  The sentiment is by Pink Petticoat cut out with a Cheery Lynn tag die.  I have cut the image out with  Dienamics Pierced Oval Stax and matted it onto Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  The border is Dienamics as are the rolled flowers. Butterfly made using MB Pippi and Isabella dies.  Here is another view:

There is a fab prize this week for the lucky winner:

Remember if you use a Crafty Sentiment image put a #3 after your name for 3 chances of winning, if you are a follower of the Inspirations blog put a #3 after your name for 3 chances of winning and if you use a Crafty Sentiment image and are a follower of the Inspiration blog then add a #6 after your name for 6 chances of winning.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Well I am having a quiet two days now as I have managed to pick up a bug from my grandsons! Hoping to get some catching up done.  Thank you so much for looking, take care xx
