Be inspired------------

OHHHH boy, this one has been a long time coming! Loads and loads of mod podge to coat each layer and make it shine and sparkle.  Below was my "be inspired" image and below that are the colors I was inspired to use! Do not look at me like that, I am able to kick the colors up to be brighter, I was inspired to do so!

This is a shot of the exact papers used. Notice how the lighting changes the shades so much compaired to the photos below!

The alley way stamps has challenged us to use the first image to come up with what ever moves us. I am moving all my things into better storage so I was moved to decorate a box. I am very happy with the outcome. It took days of drying and days of me scared my mod podge would get a kitty hair or paw but it turned out ok. Only my hair and my fingerprints :) Ah! I love the way it turned out! I used The alley way freebie (or else they could not reach me in time for me to join this one) of ladybugs. I printed out a few in different sizes and placed them right where I wanted them.  I have a mom up top and then two kids below playing. The mom is watching her little ones like a good mommy.

The shot below has less glare

If your curious I will decorate the entire box in spring theme and this box will hold stamps.  Why? Because I need stamp storage bad right now!
