Just Us Girls #168 - Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hi everyone!  Long time, no post!  Things have been a bit hectic here.  Update on my mom:  She's out of rehab and is continuing her recovery at my house (she broke her hip on Thanksgiving).  So I've been busy getting her settled, helping with her exercises, getting ready for Christmas (not much shopping done!), and working, crafting has taken a back seat.
 
But Vicki chose this fabulous photo for our Just Us Girls photo inspiration challenge (she always manages to find the coolest pictures!) and she wanted all of us to join in so I went into my cold basement craft room and rolled up the sleeves. 
 
 Here's a closeup of the picture for a better view.
 
 I decided to use the rosettes and the colors as my inspiration and came up with this.  The paper is SU's sooo retired Bali Breeze.  I made the rosette out of the turquioise paper and Tim Holtz's Paper Rosette die.  I added the scalloped circle, ribbon flower, and white glitter dot.  The senitment is Signature Greetings II from PTI.
 
 I used this great sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  That circle was perfect for my rosette! 
 
The JUGs design team has some great inspiration for you to see, so stop by these blogs.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you join us this week!

So sorry to hear about your mom's fall, Lisa. How blessed to have such a loving and helpful daughter nearby. Nice that you found a little time to create. Your inspiration fits the challenge perfectly and that sketch is so well suited to your cheery rosette. Great colors. Have a great Christmas. Hugs ~ Michele
