 The first of the month brings the start of all the new challenges - ARTastic have their new challenge up now - the inspiration is from this painting and the criteria is:
* Ribbon
* Child or children playing
* Paint or create your own background
..... and here's what I've created........
 I've used some cute pictures of Caden playing with his cousin Dylan - it's great when you get a series of pictures - they tell the story.  Nearly everything you see is from the Emerald Creek Kit by the Polka Dot Place  - these kits are really awesome and  filled with lots of great goodies.
Here's some close-up's:

 Lime Tree Creations are sponsoring this month and we got some samples to play with - here I've used a green doily - these are just gorgeous and hand-made too!!
I've made some of my own embellies - like the scallop flower - with the gorgeous pattern papers.
 I've created the background using rub-on and masking with glimmer-mist and some stamping too!  And you can also see some of that lovely paper by Core-dinations - just love the embossed textures.
..... and a hand-made bunting with the papers from the kit - have also added in a little birdie pin from the Chip-Chop Shop.

It's a very fun challenge this month and we hope you will be inspired to join in - there lots of wonderful prizes to play for.  Head over to the ARTastic blog to view all the details.
We look forward to seeing your creations.
Happy crafting.

You have used the most awesome array of papers and colors and it looks fabulous. That green just pops too. And I spy your doilies on the bunting. What a clever idea. Might just have to keep that one in the memory bank.....lol.
