Inkspiration Inspiration Challenge #19

Hello again, it's time for another challenge from Makeesha and this week it's an 'inspiration' challenge.  These seem to be the most difficult ones, but I think they are the most fun - it's amazing how you can be inspired by a picture and then come up with a creation.  Anyway, here's the inspiration:
And this is what I've come up with:
I decided to go with another scrapbook page - it's great to be getting them done and I'm loving incorporating all of my fabric goodies!  And I found the perfect photo of Amber in their garden.
I've used the colours in the picture - mainly different shades of purple and green.
The pattern paper is from My Mind's Eye and this is the Bloom & Grow pack.  I've used some Almost Amethyst along the bottom and stamped up one of the flower images from Pocket Silhouettes - this one always reminds me of lavender.
My embellishments are lace doilies which I've hand-dyed, a layered fabric flower, a button from Lil Red Rocket and a heart shape which I've punched out from computer paper - I mass produced the word 'love' and then printed it out. 
My journalling is from a computer font and I've used the Lace Doily punch along one edge.  Then I've finished off with a strip of paper and knotted ribbon.  Here's a closer look:
I hope you will all have a go with this inspiration challenge this week- it will be fun seeing what everyone comes up with. 
Be sure to link up your creations at Makeesha's post so we can all see. I'm sure she will have a fabulous creation to share too!  You can also view the amazing work from her Design Team - their links are in the side-bar.  We all love comments, so be sure to share them around.

Enjoy the weekend.
