Get Picky Inspiration

A couple of weeks ago I came across a heap of photos from 2006 that I hadn't scrapped. Amongst them
were these cute pics of my daughter playing at the park.  So sweet to look back at these toddler pics, holding her favourite doll at that time and she always used to roll her tongue when concentrating.  I'd forgotten that (and am planning a layout about it!).
 I guess this is exactly why I love recording all these little things from our lives.

 So, I put together this layout using some of these pictures and because there were 
several pictures it suited the Get Picky inspiration challenge.

Totally loving my crafters workshop templates at the moment.
The one I used here is the mini-herringbone. Along with some paint, distress inks and stains.

The Black bubble wrap stamping was a nice contrast against all those bright colours.
(Thanks Jas for the big bubble wrap:)) I love it).
As you can see I was inspired by the colours of the quilts in the 
picture and the touch of black.

Extra criteria were to use fabric
I added a calico bow and some fabric trims, and Prima fabric alphas.

I also used these Studio Calico Fab-ribs to make a boarder
around the whole layout. 
If you haven't seen them they are sticky backed fabric strips. 
Love these too lots of fun.

Cheers everyone, and thank-you so much for all the lovely people that take the time 
to comment. I love to hear from you all. :)
Have a great week-end.
