Embellish Magazine CHALLENGE!!

Sniff ... sniff - anyone else smell burning shoe leather? Another dash to a challenge deadline ....??

That would be right :0)! Embellish Magazine put up this eye candy for our delight on the 16th:


There is a wonderful line in the book "Anne of Green Gables" where Anne asks Marilla - "Don't you just love poetry that gives you that crinkley feeling up and down your back..." ? These pics did that for me - they're so Mediterranean! I particularly loved the way the white building contrasted with the blue sky... and although white wasn't part of the challenge decided that it needed to be in there in a large dose ...


O.K. I know this is my second really white card in two days - please just chart it down to a brain that has been feverish with activity that needs a place to slow down and rest :0) Heee!


I decided to use Terracotta Tile, not Orange Zest for the orange component of this ... it just seemed so fitting with the picture inspiration we were given. The flower centres have been dabbed with Glossy Accents to give them some shine and the leaves behind my flower were cut from brown felt (it photographed dark, sorry to say!) The kraft has been incorporated in the "Dotty Biscotti" paper (still LOVE that name!)

So there we have it ... now for me to run along and pop this in. I noticed that the Embellish blog has the MOST AWESOME pics of CHA on it today - you may want to peek in and see all that eye candy! Woooo!

And peeps ... this is my 100th post on the ole blogaroo! Don't people usually celebrate that in a big way?

I'll have to put some thoughts into that one!

:0)
