Getting Picky Inspiration

Just a really quick share.... this is the one i got stuck on a few days ago!  i've had another go - totally different challenge, so i hope this ones proves more successful!  hehe..

i had a look at the latest Get Picky challenge and instantly fell in love with this pic:


it wasn't so much the candy but the gorgeous blue and white striped wall in the background and the whole 'whitewashed' look of it that really screamed at me ... yep, weird - show me lollies, and i see the wall!! lol...
oh well.... this is what i came up with:

{nearly summer}


look!  i did flowers!!  hehe


... love the colours in these little prima babies,
and they matched the echo park pp (the stripe), and the golden teracotta and patina glimmermist beautifully.  i stitched like mad (as always), tore up strips of muslin (as always) ripped up some hand made paper for a rough border and whitewashed a couple of chippy elements.  i also crackled the little twiddleybitz fence too... first time i've used one of those little fellas.  the bg pp was the wrong side of some of that beautiful ink resist pink paislee range (doh!)  i didn't mean to use the wrong side, but i just LOVED the script.   ... and those feet belong to dd#1 - she took this pic during our september school holiday trip  to Yeppoon, whilst we were doing a reconnaisance for camping spots...  i guess she got bored!!  lol

oh good news ... puter is kinda feeling better than it did... fixed the registry problem, but did a BIG cleanup too!!  Fingers crossed that we have prolonged it's life somewhat!!  :))  the main plus is that i can now download my camera and use my printer!!!  YAY! 

.. and we are now the proud owners of a TBox too!  the digital tuner on our 2yo TV died!!  (what next), so rather than spend a fortune to replace it, we decided to get a TBox instead, which is a digital tuner... with benefits!  hehe .... the kids are kinda happy (understated)...

thanks for stopping by

Very very noice. a) colours, b) border, c) stitching, d) the cute picket fence, e) the pics and f) the rest. That wraps it up I think. Yay to the puter. Mine is my lifeline and cannot live without so glad you can go on too. And t-box, dont know much about them except from what they have shown on "The Block".....lol.
