traveler's inspiraton challenge.

It has been raining here like crazy. It is great for our grass, but we didn't have any fireworks last night because of the rain/storms. It was a pretty big bummer. We are hoping they will shoot them tonight, but we'll see at 9 if that pans out.

So today, Chase and I finished a project and I participated in traveler's inspiration challenge. Check out the picture:
I had this butterfly left over from Dawn's challenge and it seemed to work well for this challenge.
I love all the colors. So fun! Here's what I used:

Stamps: Garden Galore (Inkadinkado)
Ink: Black Stazon
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Raspberry Fizz, Taken with Teal

And here's what Chase and I worked on (we just did this in our master a few weeks ago here). Here is the before:
We simply cut the trim and applied it with glue. Make sure you get epoxy! It really will make a difference. We used some other kind of glue in the master and it took SO MUCH LONGER. And here is the finished look:
I also got this great fern and pot for our master bathroom. I'm crazy about the pot!

Awesome decor and card!

I bet that Nashville is reeling with the death of Steve McNair, so tragic.

I LOVE what you did with your mirror---we SOOOO need to do that in our Master Bath---did you take the mirror off the wall, or just glue it on while it was on the wall? It looks fantastic!

Cute card!! Love the buttons down the side. YOur Raspberry suite carrd is adorable too . . . and love your little fixs to the bathroom. They really do make a nice difference. Looks like you had fun in Chi-town. I'm from the Northern suburbs. We don't go there much except for fun excursions (traffice is terrible), so it's like a mini vaca for us too :0)
