18th March-Pinterest

Today's challenge is a Pinterest challenge! Are you addicted to Pinterest yet?! Valerie picked us a lovely photo from Pinterest to inspire your layouts!
Here it is:

Here is what the design team came up with!


I loved the shape of the flowers and the bright colors in the photos. I used my Silhouette to cut a similar shape from a mix of bright patterns.


I took inspiration from the fabulous photo in two ways - firstly I echoed the bright colours with my choice of papers (Echo Park), and secondly I included these cute handmade crochet flowers to give my page extra dimension. 

I loved the photo so much I copied it! I cut out the flower shapes from paper and laid them on my card stock and misted over them I then hand stitched around the shapes and painted inside them and added button centres to finish!


I love all the colours in the pin so I took these for my inspiration as well as using an interlocking pattern, I chose hexagons.  This is one of our more recent snow pictures and I love snow (fortunately so do the kids) so we spent an afternoon sledging and having a go on a new flat sledge board...which was great, but somehow we managed to come down on it backwards so this is me and my son having laughed most of the way down the slope.

 Four-leaved flowers!? No problem for me! I love Hortensias so I chose one of my many photos I made at Stourhead Gardens (Wiltshire)! The colours as well fit to this weeks inspiration - and the flower punches by Martha Stewart!


Such a great inspiration photo!  I was inspired by the colours and the shapes of the flowers reminded me a little of a pinwheel so I made one and added it as my embellishment.
