Get "Punchy" with it

THis weeks challenge was to use punches as your focal point...I have MANY punches, but did find it a bit harder to use them as a focal point

I also used rubons (which I have MANY of), and hand stitiched...something I have NEVER done before...

The 2nd picture shows the sentiment rubon on the chipboard...

PUNCHES: small and large oval

PAPER: Pretty in Pink...the rest is from My minds eye (Bohemia line)

INK: Brown chalk

ACC: brads, rubons (bees on flowers, and sentiment on swirl chipboard) Chipboard, and thread for stitching

Inspiration (Bloggers Challenge)

Inspiration: a divine influence or action on a person

This weeks challenge was to find something that inspired you...We took the kids to a waterpark last weekend, and I kept seeing this cute little girl walking around (with her parents)...She was wearing the cutest little bathing suit...It had blues/browns/greens...prints/solids/flowers...Of course, I did not have my camera to take a picture, but it stood out enough for me to remember it
Paper: KI (the Toby collection from Elsie Flannigan)...I saw her at CHA, and she is the cutest little thing...Choclate chip
Acc: Ribbon, Chipboard from various vendors, glitter on chipboard, Prima flowers, and brads
