Lets Get Shabby #27..............New Challenge

The September challenge at Lets Get Shabby is to use inspiration from one of TallulahBelles beautiful Etsy product packs for your creation. This was a really fun challenge to do, so hop on over to Lets Get Shabby for all the details on how to play. I chose Woodland Whimsy Petite Pocketful of Whimsy.

Firstly I have to admit to a love of all things 'vintage',so all of the product packs that Kris makes for her Etsy Shop appealed to was really hard to choose. In the end I chose this pack as my inspiration because of the colours. The turquoise beads and the brown and white spot jumped out at me. Turquoise would have to be my favourite colour. Next it was the whimsical little deer with the bird sitting on it's back ( and I knew I had paper with a little deer on it ) and lastly the doilies, who doesn't love the vintage girly look of these pretties. I have used Martha Stewart ones, crochet ones and ones cut from the packaging of a Prima flower pack ( sadly they look a bit shiny in the photo ) 

Thanks for dropping by. Have a great weekend every one. xx
