Here is our inspiration photo for this month's PTI blog hop:
I decided to use Lovely Layers for my card, since I haven't used it too much yet. I went with the theme of flowers, and the same basic color scheme, only my colors ended up being much brighter rather than the soft shades of the picture. I think I am just a bright colored gal. I like the card I ended up with, although it doesn't resemble the picture much. But, the picture did inspire me, and that is the main point, right?
Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps: Lovely Layers
Paper: Simply Chartreuse, White, Summer Sunrise Pattern, Simply Chartreuse Pattern
Ink: Simply Chartreuse, Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet, Memento Rich Cocoa
Other: Lovely Layers Dies, Tracey's Fabulous Frames Die, Striped IP
And, if you don't mind more pictures, I've got some pictures from Stamp-A-Faire. I was lucky enough to have two dear friends come over for the day, Kim from Cupcakes, Cards, and Kim and Cathy from Empty Nest Crafter. I won't show my cards, since we were so busy talking and laughing, that I really didn't do much other than case a few of the DT's creations.
Here we are on a break from crafting--I took them to the beach near my house.

Kim and I each made favors for each of us from Favor-it dies.
Cathy had the most beautifully wrapped basket of strawberry themed crafts and gifts. This is what was left of it after I tore it open. I should have taken the picture first. She actually made paper strawberries with little gifts inside each one.
Kim made the sweetest summer camp gift bags with card sets inside:

Kim had warned me she was bringing my birthday present on the plane, and that it was large. Imagine my surprise when she came off the plane carrying this. It was all wrapped up and in its own crate. She and her husband made me this ribbon holder, just like Nicole's. Isn't it just amazing? I thought I had a lot of ribbon, but notice how much empty space there is.....
Stamp-a-Faire was a day to remember. We had such fun, and still managed to watch a number of the videos and create a couple of cards, too. I sure hope it becomes an annual tradition.
Thanks for Visiting
