{Pin}spirational Challenge #9

I'm very excited to tell everyone that I've been invited to be a Design Team member for {Pin}spirational Challenges!  I'm really thinking this is going to be a "'challenge to myself" as I usually have a hard time with color or inspirational challenges!  Have a little patience with me on this adventure! LOL

I love the {Pin}spirational photo for this challenge - it just looks so summery and yummy!  Our sponsor is Deidre Mosher who creates very cute images.   Come on over to {Pin}spirational Challenges and enter your creation......I know you'll have fun,.  You'll also be very inspired by all the DT's creations!


I used a Hero Arts image along with some SU card stock and some unknown brand of DP.  I focused on the pinks in the photo - but you could also add a little yellow and orange to make it more yummy looking.   The sentiment is also from SU.  I followed the Sweet Stop sketch for this week and will enter it in their challenge too.  Even though you can't see it in the photo, I used a Stardust glitter pin on the image and it really makes it shine.  The cherry was covered with Liquid Glass (CTMH).


Check out this inspiration photo.........Yummy, right!!!

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR MY SHOPPING OUR STASH POST, IT'S DIRECTLY BELOW THIS ONE.

Thanks for stopping by.........and be sure and head on over to {Pin}spirational Challenges and enter your creation.
