Take a look at our inspiration for May, Anything Goes!

I love these pretty roses in the jar, so I used them as my inspiration. Take a look at what I have created for you today!

I love the new frames from the Square Scallop Frames die set, and used them against a pretty patterned paper rectangle, and stamped and cut flowers from Make Today Beautiful. The leaves are from Thinking of You.

Pretty in Pink

 

Hello Everyone,

There is a little bit of time left to play along with this week’s Tag You’re It Challenge #69. Featured artist Joyce Mehrberg created this adorable inspiration tag that featured a little pink kitty! Of course, I had to play along, and I am so glad I had a little bit of time to make my own version with a pink kitty! You can get all the details and play along over at Tag You’re It right here: http://tagyoureitchallenge.blogspot.com/2017/04/tag-youre-it-69.html

Instead of using a large focal point of a big pom pom or a pretty bow, I used a tiny pink pom pom instead. I like the idea that alone, we may be just one, a small inspiration, a tiny ripple. But together, those tiny ripples create big waves of resistance, change, of accepting what is right. It’s easier when we come together, to resist and reject dishonorable people and ideas, and to make the world a better place.

Thanks so much for joining me today!
