Polkadot Door Designs' June Blog Hop

If you are here for the Scrapping Everyday Miracles Hop the post is below this one....

Welcome to the Polkadot Door Designs' June Blog Hop.  Each month they chose a group of ladies from those that complete the challenge to design for them and hop the following month.  I created a completed the hop in May so I was asked to design this month.  If you just found the hop you can start at  the Polkadot Door Design's blog be sure to work your way through all the blogs and see what the design team has created using the wonderful inspiration photo. As you hop be sure to leave a comment on every blog.  

Not only are there great prizes for you to win but if you liked my layout the best please go back to the Polkadot Door Designs' blog and vote for me as your favorite project.  


Create a project that is inspired by the following...
Here is what I created

Unfortunately I couldnt get a picture that showed the details... so I took a couple of detailed pictures to try and capture it better.... I have tulle under the photo and feathers along the branch... I love the branch my 3 year old daughter told her father while they were out on a walk that Mommy needed it... so he broke it off and took it home.  So I just had to use it.....

Here is the lineup if you get lost along the way....


Our Challenge winner will receive a
$20 gift certificate to Pink Pearl Studios!

Our blog hop winner will receive
three tags from Berry71bleu!
