Simon Says Challenge - Photo Inspiration

Welcome to another Simon Says Challenge. We had loads of fantastic entries last week for our "Check it out" challenge - thank you so much for playing along with us.

This week, we have a photo inspiration challenge for you and here it is......

Lols tells you all about the Blue Lagoon on the challenge blog - sounds like heaven to me !!!

There is a fantastic prize of a $25 P&P free shopping spree for the winner of this challenge !

Here is my card ......

The DP's are the new Tim Holtz papers "Vintage Shabby" and wow, they are gorgeous

The centre panel has been cut from a piece of Core'dinations, run through one of those fantastic corrugator machines and then sanded to show off the white core

The lace is from my stash

The images are of course by Magnolia. Tilda with wine and basket (which is in stock in the Simon Says Stamp Store) and the summer lanterns which I received in the Summer kit a couple of years ago. I am sure that Heidi will order this stamp for you should you like to buy it

The ticket is a Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous stamp and the ticket has been die cut from the Tim Holtz/Sizzix ticket strip die.

The flowers are Prima Essentials Shabby Chic which I know Simon Says Stamp are expecting in store

The brad and tulle are from my stash

We look forward to seeing how you have been inspired by this cool photo.

Thank you for your visit, it was so lovely to see you today !
