 Our June prize is...

Isn't this "Chicken Wire Frame" die cut so awesome?  Wouldn't it be great in your crafty stash?  Sure it would, so come on and join the fun.  Create and enter your "One for the boys" project HERE for a chance to win!

And to get you started, here's some fun inspiration for you...

Here's my "One for the boys" inspiration...


I took my inspiration from the photo in the upper left.  It reminded me of our grandson and his Crazy Cart!  He keeps it at our house because there's lots of room to ride in the circle out front.  Racing up and down the driveway is a common site when he is visiting.  And, of course, he is always the "winner" of the race!

Now, come join us at the Double D Challenge Blog!  You'll find the challenge rules located at the top of the blog.  Link your entry using the Inlinkz icon found at the bottom of the current challenge post.

Craft-Dee BowZ "Let your dreams bloom"

I'm up on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog today with my June inspiration.  The Design Team is creating shabby chic projects in a peach and ivory color theme along with choosing our embellishments using the Tic Tac Toe board below.  It was truly a dream working with these gorgeous colors and definitely my favorite theme of shabby chic!

It wasn't difficult choosing what I was going to use from this board...I used all but one item.

Here's my June, "Shabby Chic" inspiration...

"Let your dreams bloom"

My collage card was created with lots of layers and texture. I formed a pocket by tearing and layering patterned papers, tucked in a doily and added the sentiment tag over it.  The black mannequin die cut is double layered for dimension.  Pearls, buttons and lace were the perfect embellishments for this shabby chic card.  A touch of ink and gesso complete the look!

This amazing bow was created using my wonderful Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.  It helps make bows quick and easy.  I love this sheer and shiny peach ribbon!

Here's my inspiration for you this month....

"Secret Garden"

I've had this chipboard album in my stash for quite a while.  It's been there so long, I'm not sure who the manufacturer is.  The Graphic 45 Secret Garden Collection has also been in my stash waiting to be used, so this was a good time to put them together and create this "Secret Garden" mini album.

 Here's a close up of the front cover of the garden page.  It has the "magic" key to the Secret Garden!

Unlock the Secret Garden gate and enter through the arched trellis...

into the enchanted Secret Garden!

You'll find shades of lavender, pink...

 and lovely blues...

 spring green and sunny yellow!

A garden full of graceful flowers and many secrets.  It's a place we would all love to have in our yard.
 Thanks for stopping by to see my "Secret Garden" mini album inspiration!
