Welcome to another Inspired By challenge. We have been having such warm weather here (finally... it was such a terrible spring so far) I am starting to get the 'bug' for summer. Although I don't like the heat, I sure do like the fresh fruit and veggies. Strawberries are one of my favorites and I was really drawn to this inspiration photo.
What can you do with this inspiration? Obviously strawberries but also the colors, the jars - a trend right now, the basket, foliage...
I decided to go with the strawberries. On the weekend I was out garage saleing and thrift store shopping. I first picked up the wooden rolling pin and basket at a garage sale for next to nothing! I then saw the plate at a thrift store and I knew exactly what I was going to do. I stopped and picked up a strawberry plant on the way home and then went right to work. I painted the handles of the rolling pin then covered it with some Nikki Sivils Audrey paper. I got out one of my many (although dwindling) white cloth napkins and used some PTI stamp sets to stamp on it. I finished it all off with a 'feel better berry soon' card. Wouldn't this, along with some yummy strawberries, make a nice little gift for someone who is not feeling well. I know I would love to get it!
Now some close ups. Here is the napkin, plate and plant. This is for the Scrapbookin' Adventures challenge - stamp it/
The pearls on the card are from Want2Scrap and the V Striped Twill and Twine are available at Ribbon Carousel.
Now I can't wait to see what you do!
