A little behind & FYI Challenge #10

Landed back in NJ a few hours ago from my trip to CHA and boy is it hot here! Very nice to be home, heat or no heat. I will put together a post with all my CHA pictures by the weekend. There was so much to see - and this was the 'small' show.

I apologize for the delay of my FYI challenge post. Challenge #10  is up on the blog. Here's what I made with Steph's pretty challenge photo for this week:
materials: cardstock: Canvas & Co.; patterned paper: 7 Gypsies; flowers: Jillibean Soup; sticker: SRM

I was definitely inspired by the color and repetition in the challenge photo. To see the inspo photo and the inspiring & beautiful work of the design team, just stop by right here. We'd love it if you played along!

A quick thanks to everyone that voted for me in Gallery Idol Round 2. They will announce the Top 10 tomorrow. Hopefully I will be one of them, if not, that will be fine. It's been so great being part of this group and getting to know the very talented Gallery Idol top 20!

Hope where you are you are cool and comfortable.

See you tomorrow!

Love the "steps" of patterned paper and the colours are so perfect for the photo.

I really LOVE your interpretation of Steph's photo...this is beautiful in the layout, colors and textured details of stitching and crimping!
