Petal Parade - the leafiest of them all

If you're looking for layout inspiration, the CAS(e) This Sketch challenge never disappoints! There's another cracking sketch there this week and it immediately made me reach for Stampin' Up's Petal Parade free Sale-a-bration set. Come and see:


What do you think? I think it works really well as a mirror image!


I love the strong font from See Ya Later (another set that you can choose free as part of the promotion) and the cursive font from Express Yourself made a nice foil for it, so I used markers and a stamp-a-majig to make a brand new hybrid sentiment. This is so easy to do (click here for a video tutorial) and the possibilities are endless!


I thought this made a nice motif for a male birthday so I made a gift box to go with it. This is another useful basic box to have in your repetoire sp, if you love this idea, look out for my video tutorial coming later in the week!


These will be perfect for my father next month and I can fill the box with something delicious to eat!

Here are the sketch and colour palette I was working from today. Unfortunately I ran out of time to link to ColourQ - the challenge there has closed:

That gorgeous bedroom in the ColourQ inspiration photo reminds me of a conversation I had with my daughter while looking on Pinterest for ideas for revamping her room.
My daughter: I'd like to be there... you'd get up and make yourself a cup of tea...
Me: Couldn't someone else do that?
My daughter: Well no, because then they'd come in and pester you!
Me: Well you could just hiss at them and watch them scuttle off!

See you tomorrow,
