UDI Inspiration Challenge #81

Good morning stamping friends!
Since today is Thursday, it's time for another fun inspiration challenge from the UDI Blog. Our challenge Mom, Maria chose this beautiful photo of bright summery flowers - I think she knew we'd need a touch of warmth in this first week of February! Doesn't it make you think of a beautiful June day?

Now I have a little confession to make - I have been crazy busy working on a Wedding scrapbook for my friend whose daughter got married in Hawaii last year. I finally got time about 10 pm last night to open the inspiration photo and see what I could do with it and I started doing the happy dance!!! Those flowers and those colors were PERFECT for the challenge! You know what they say - "Sometimes you're the windshield and sometimes you're the bug." Well, today I'm the Windshield! HA!
Here are a few of the pages I've been working on for my friends scrapbook. There is no journaling as we are leaving those spots and pull outs blank for her daughter to journal her thoughts and memories. Also note that 99% of the supplies used are SU!, but there are a couple of things that are not - they were supplied by my friend.

The first page used Whisper White and Melon Mambo cardstock, Pumpkin Pie Patterns DSP, Melon Mambo ink, Razzle Dazzle Stamp Set, Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain ribbon, the SAB Scallop Punch and the NEW XL flower Punch.

This next page uses Melon Mambo Textured cardstock for the base page and the dsp is from Razzleberry Lemonade.

I used my Big Shot to make the scalloped rectangle behind the photo of her bridesmaids and the journaling tags were made with the Top Note Die. The retired stamp set Do the Hula provided the flower stamp which was rock and rolled to get the two tone effect with Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie.

I love this next page so much!

I used the Top Note die for the pull our journaling block behind the top photo and the top portion of it is embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty folder and my Big Shot. The cardstock is Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Textured and the dsp is from the Rich Razzleberry Patterns package. The flower is made with the new XL Flower punch and Razzleberry Lemonade dsp. The pearls are from the Pretties Kit and the SAB Scallop punch was used for the edges. A little Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot ribbon here too and the caption is from the With All My Heart stamp set in the mini catalog.

This is coming together as a very different kind of wedding scrapbook, but she had a different kind of wedding - bright, fun and sunny!
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check out all the other design teams projects today as well by visiting the UDI Blog for the links.
