Hi and welcome. The first of October and a new challenge at Pixels and Paper where the inspiration photo could well have you thinking of your favourite cuppa , flowers or pastel colours. Pop on over to:-  and have a look at the image as well as what the team has come up with.

 I've left my background paper as it came. This was a fabulous collection from Fabscraps and the images and colours were perfect for this challenge. I've added some punched paper 'lace' strips, using pale blue and pale green, a great sentiment card which has also doubled as a journalling tag, diecut trellis (Fabscraps again), diecut flowers from vellum, pearls and a store-bought butterfly.

All edges were smooshed with one of my new purchases from "Time To Create Handmade Treasures"... the gorgeous MementoLuxe inks. I used Angel Pink and Pear Tart. (green) .. both gorgeous, fresh colours. The vellum was sprayed lightly with Perfect Pearls and finished  with a touch of the the MementoLuxe as well.

The photo is of a good friend and self  having a quick interlude at '
I hope you feel inspired to have a go at our challenge this month.
Cheers, for now.
