A Quiet Day...

Hi friends!  I was going through my Google Reader of all the MANY blogs I follow (I swear I spend more time looking than stamping!) and found this photo inspiration challenge from Inky Impressions.  I immediately jumped for joy when I saw it because I have had an image colored and ready to use for maybe two years!  I'm almost embarrassed to admit that!  But I found it the other day when I was organizing and it was kismet when I saw this photo!

 And here's the image.  The umbrella and two chairs is what caught my eye.  This is an image by Art Impressions that I got at my LSS.  Like I said, it was already colored.  It took me a while to find some paper that worked with it.  I have TONS of paper, and I had a difficult time finding the right ones.  I finally settled on these from Basic Grey's Lauderdale paper pack.  I added the Cameo Coral flag that was cut with flag dies from WPlus9 Designs.  The blue flower was purchased at AC Moore and the coral flower behind it is a Prima flower.  I added some star dust stickles on the flowers in the picture and a yellow glitter pen on the lemonade pitcher and glasses.

I of course had to find a sketch to use (because I'm sketch challenged!), and I used this one from Sketchbook Saturday.  I had to change out the circle for my square image.  I also entered this into the SCS Free for All challenge called Weather or Not?

I'd love to know what you think of this one.  I kind of like the color combination and I think the image looks pretty good on it.  It's been waiting a long time for a home!  LOL!!  Thanks for stopping by!
