Tiddly Inks Challenge 84- Photo Inspiration

Morning Peeps!!!

Its that Tiddly Tuesday time of the week again and time for a new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog today I have a layout to share with you.
We have a '2' theme going for a little photo inspiration with a '2' ish theme because Tiddly Inks is turning 2. Here is the photo....

I decided to go with the bottom left of the umbrella and use the orangey and yellow colours along with Wryn- Pick up Sticks! she is just gorgeous! and her sentiments are just awesome.

I chose some paper with the right colours on it and some scraps of orangey handmade papers that would match the colours on the umbrella. I coloured Wryn up in some oranges and browns and I also tried to get a bit of blue in on her top too from the left of the umbrella!
I love photo inspiration because it just inpsires you to use different colour combo's in exciting ways!
Please don't forget to pop in on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and see  the other awesome Tiddly Inkers take on this piccy.

By now, anyone who pops in on my blog will know that I don't do photos of me!!! This picture of me and scott was taken on mothers day when we went to Twycross zoo with Mo. Scott took it when we were in one  of the huts along the Borneo Longhouse Aviary walk so we were in a little wooden walkway. So Little Mo and I went stick hunting so I could use some real sticks to go onto my layout 
(...note to anyone doing this with their little boy...they will bring a whole tree...or 3 back home with them....!! the council had recently been trimming the branches and there were loads of them down on the ground...now they are in my garden!!!)

Here is a close up of my journalling.....
and here is a better piccy of my gorgeous little Wryn all coloured up, I absolutely adore her
and a close up of the sentiment too. I coloured up the 'stick' letters and added crackle accents to them. 
I love this layout because in our 10 years together I only have 3 photo's of Scott and I apart from our wedding ones!!!! and he is just such a special guy. I am a very lucky gal and the 2 of us make the best team.

Right then, that me for today!!! off for a cuppa and some snuggly time with Mo before we head off to the zoo for the day. Scott is giving the fluffy princess a good walk before we go and Mo and I are just waiting for Ryan to arrive.
thank you for popping in on me and please don't forget to pop in on the other gorgeous Tiddly Inking gals too over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog.
