Just Us Girls Inspiration Challenge #336

It's always fun when it is our Inspiration Challenge at
and look what our Host Nancy has chosen...
Here is what I made. 

As you can see I took my inspiration from
that gorgeous photo and made a seaside scene.
Not too many details on how I made this as I
don't know who the seaside stamps are from.
Did some sponging for the sky surf and sand.
The birds are from Repeat Impression.
Added some jute cotton trim and
some dew drops to finish.
Hope on over to Our Blog to see
more amazing creations and
hope you get the urge to play with us
this week. If so you could be our
Chic of the Week and be in the running
to be our Guest in May.
Thanks for dropping in

I was Inspired at Always Playing with Paper & The Mod Squad

Hope everyone is enjoying the Easter Break and getting time
to do some of your favourite things.
Mine of course is spending time in my Play Station.
This time I am again playing at
Inspiration Challenge with the gorgeous photo below.

I know most people are looking at Spring but here in
Australia it is still summery but Autumn is here
especially in the early morning and late afternoon.
It just so happens that The Mod Squad 
are having a Springtime Challenge so I will
enter my card in both of these challenges.
Here are the products I used -
White cs as my base
Memory Box Texture Waive
stencilled in SU Melon Mambo
and Tim Holtz Dried Marigold
Scrap piece of paper corner rounded
and added own ribbons and pearls
Flowers are by Marianne Designs
& Cheery Lynn Designs
Brads for centre of flowers
MS leaves (scrunched for effect)
Sentiment is from Gina K Designs.
Thanks for dropping in.
Love reading your comments.
