Get Picky - Inspiration Challenge

The Best Things in Life Aren't Things

The new inspiration challenge is up at Get Picky.  As the winner for the last inspiration challenge I was invited as to create a LO for the new challenge.  Really love the colours that went with the inspiration pic and love how my LO came out.  Pop on over to the site and check out all the gorgeous creations from the DT... very inspirational.

Here is how I interpreted the inspiration pic and colours.  Used some old Prima for the background and overlayed with a gorgeous diecut.  Of course you all know I love flowers so I had to add some prima flowers and bling and for a bit of texture some cheesecloth fabric which I distressed and scrunched.  The sweet little butterfly chippies are from Scrapmatts and the the glimmermist is denim blue.  My journaling reads " Brittany always remember to enjoy the little things.. like a beautiful Summer's day with the sun warming your skin, a breeze to gently lift the hair from your face, the smell of flowers to sweeten your day and the sound of birds singing to lighten your heart."

Scrap The Girls - Always Together


Couldn't help myself, this LO was bugging me as it didn't feel right so I tweaked it and am now much happier with it now.  I added the clouds and the picket fence and some mist splatters to give the misting a bit more definition.

A last minute entry and a quick one for Scrap The Girls.  I would have liked to have spent a  bit more time on this inspiration challenge as the pic was so fun and bright, but I left it a bit late and really wanted to fit this one in.  Not my best work but it has a cute fun feel to it.  Used some Fancy Pants, MME & WRMK pp's with a Martha Stewart punched border and some cute buttons from Purple Pumpkin. There is a some misting in Riptide, but it doesn't show up very well in the pic.. not a great pic as I took this indoors.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving some love :)
