Hello again everyone!

Welcome back to those of you joining us for another month and welcome to those that are new the hop. This months challenge was to a) find some inspiration from other blog hop members (hardly a challenge, right?!?) and b) use the following color palette.

Now, I didn’t follow the colors exactly but I did the best with the colors I had. And here’s what I came up with. (Excuse the lighting on the photo, I had to take it indoors.)Image

This is a picture of my puppy child a year ago when we first got her and I was so nervous about this encounter with another pup. The German Shepherd pup was only 1 year and already so huge! Being the well-trained dog that she was, she laid right down and let Coca jump all over tugging at her tail and ears. It was too cute not to document.

So for the last part of the challenge which was to find inspiration from other people on the hop, I took a little inspiration from everyone. There was no way to decide. I browsed and browsed through blogs and layouts and Instagram photos until I literally lost track of what I was supposed to be doing. But, in all of that browsing, I saw these ladies layer on their layouts and use bold colors and use cuts from their Cameo and I had to include all of that in this layout. I’ll eventually get the hang of layering like these other pros…just give me some time.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look and below is the blog hop order in case you missed something along the way.
