Love...Inspired By All The Little Things Challenge #41 (Guest Designer)

Hello,

I'm so honoured to have been asked by my sweet, talented (and fellow Canadian *yayy*) friend, Tracey McNeely, from In My Creative Opinion fame, to guest design for Inspired By All The Little Things Challenge #41!  If the invitation alone wasn't enough to set my spirits soaring, the inspiration photo launched me into the stratosphere!  Perfect for my CAS-loving heart....


Speaking of hearts....that's precisely the direction I went! Please welcome my Concord and 9th Heart  Strings (again...complete besotted  with it!) a la shaker style. Using mini beads ensured I captured all the colours in the photo.  I'm thinking I need a set of those candles to match my card...


In addition to the thrill of designing alongside the Inspired By team - whose takes on this photo will leave you breathless - I also had opportunity to answer some interview questions.  If you've followed me for a while, you're already familiar with these 'bits and pieces'; if not, well...I hope you enjoy the snippets of who 'just me: c' is.

Thank you sooooo much, Tracey, for this wonderful opportunity!  Looking forward to seeing everyone's creations in the gallery!

GORGEOUS!!! The bright pink and kraft make a fabulous combo! The shaker element puts this way off the AH-MAZING chart! I'm so with you in "needing" these cool candles! Now I'm off to read your interview questions :)
