She Shells See Sells

Hello Everyone!

It's the weekend at last and I'm hosting the Inspiration Challenge over on SCS!  Yay!!  This week the webstore for the challenge is "The Outer Banks Trading Group".  I don't know how I stumbled upon this website but I stayed to look around because it brought back memories of one of our best vacation spots ever many years ago!!  This is a photo of DH and me on said vacation on the Outer Banks of NC, clearly having a wonderful time, enjoying this fabulous 3-level ocean front home we rented along with family and friends!!  Some day we'll go back... until then, it's a great memory and a fun challenge opportunity!

And about that Challenge...I chose this simple photo of a framed sea shell because...yes... it reminded me of the fun TH Flowers I've been obsessed with making this past week!


I made one plain white accordion flower, sponged over the top lightly with Color Box Creamy Brown and Dark Brown ink and added a neutral colored prima and a brad.  I ran a square panel through my Big Shot with a bubbly looking Cuttlebug EF, layered onto brown and white CS, and finally adhered my flower to the center of it!

Come on by and join me in this weekend's challenge!! I'd love to see what inspired you from the Outer Banks Trading Group website!!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
