Fancy Schmancy Forever


Cath has picked out some Fancy Schmancy cakes to get our creativity whirring for the latest Tuesday Trigger at the Moxie Fab World.  I was inspired by the colours of the cakes, the ruffled cake liners and the doily they're sitting on.  


Since there's a lot of PTI happening here I'm going to enter this over at A Passion for Papertrey where the challenge is to use stripes.  I'm also going to join in with Simon Says Stamp's Love Is In The Air challenge.


If you have 45 seconds to spare then watch this short video on You Tube.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBTQw7I5zBE
The guy in the yellow jacket is Dr. Neil Burnie, one of the partners at the veterinary practice I work at.  He was on holiday in Jackson Hole, WY last week and just happened to be snowboarding in the right place at the right time to help someone out.  I talked here about what an amazing guy he is and now he can add Hero to his lengthy list of accomplishments!

Super cool take on the inspiration. I like how you've used that die cut instead of straight lines. Adds so much.
