Brightly Inspired :)

Happy Saturday to you all!!

I'm off for a busy day filled with family and friends...it's been absolutely beautiful these past few days, have totally enjoyed being outside!

It's Saturday -- My Time to Create Challenge day!! So what's better in beautiful sunshiny weather than to hang you clothes out to dry, right??? Check out this week's inspiration photo:




















those fun bright clothes are just fab!

My eye was really drawn to the fuschia and turquoise dress...do you see how the polka dots start out larger, and then get smaller?? I thought this was a lot of fun, so I did that on the front of my card.


















I kept the rest fairly simple, since the background should really be the focal point.

Let me know what you think -- fun and funky, or too much??

Hope you get to play along - be sure to use MTTI05 as your keyword if you do! There's also a Mr. Linky on Lauren's blog. Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has cooked up this week! I've listed the whole team, the ones that are in bold are playing along this week.

I {heart} this card! I vote fun and funky and will add oh so CUTE! I did not notice the circles tapering on the skirt/apron but I do NOW! Brilliant Tracey!

Hey Tracey this is just fab! I love the decreasing circle size and it was also refreshing to see that we can truly take just one piece of an inspiration challenge and work with that - fun, fresh, clean!
