Now on to sharing the layout I created for this month!
My soul inspiration when looking at that gorgeous mood board was the little wooden birdhouses on the bottom right.  They really appealed to me,
I loved the woodgrain and the lovely soft colour.
So I went about recreating my version of that particular image on my layout.

On the background I used Jo Sonas Decor Crackle to create the woodgrain effect and I was really happy with how it turned out.  It was so cool watching that crackle effect appear as the
top layer of paint dried! 
 Who said watching paint dry was boring!! ;)

I added some ink droplets in shades of pink and turquoise.

Being such a soft girly page featuring my daughter and our puppy,
I added some soft pastel coloured flowers, and some Prima lace and Mistables canvas.
The 'love' wood veneer is by Freckled Fawn.
The chicken wire chipboard is from 2Crafty Chipboard and a flair button from 
 A Piece of Cake Designs.

The deadline for this challenge is midnight EST Thursday 25th July 2013.
Thanks for stopping by and I really hope you can find time to squeeze this challenge in to 
your scrapbooking schedule this month.
