Just like a Circus...

Yes, those are lyrics from a song by Britney Spears and although some might laugh at me, I don't really care 'cause my brain simply wouldn't let me come up with anything cleverer... lol
This week's colour combo at the Play Date Café is simply gorgeous! Love love love the mix of deep red, mustard and off blue!!! And as it is opened to any medium I decided to go for a layout.

As I really have been enjoying my "stamps only" layouts lately (as well as some of you!) I have decided to do it again! Once more the stamps I used are from Waltzing Mouse. I used the brand new "chicken wire" and "heirloom patterns" sets as well as a stamp from the "off beat background" set and the star that come in the "bitty banners" set. All the inks used are from Stampin'up and all the letters are American Crafts stickers and Thickers.

As well I was absolutely gobsmacked to  find out that I had been picked as a "Fab Four" two weeks in a row! Thank you soooo much Play Date Café!!!!

On another note, I want to try my best to get back to you regarding you questions so let's start right here right now! This question was asked in the previous post:

Thank you Vee! I am happy you like my designs! Sadly I did not make the flower myself... it is from Prima and it is under the name "Calcutta Dogwood Cameo".

Also I was very honoured to be awarded the"Liebster Blog" award by two lovely ladies:

Now that I have the award there are several things I must do:
  • Pass the award on to five other blogs that have inspired me, they have to have less than 200 followers

  • Put a comment on their blogs so that they know.
  • Link back to the person who gave me the award.

  • Post the award on my blog.

    So, drumm roll, my five blog love are:

    -Amy from "Ink about Me"
    -Helen from "Helen Berry Design"
    -Ifa from "Ifa Zainon blog"

    Well, this was a pretty long post don't you think? I hope this inspired you!!!
