They’ve got a new challenge going on at Let’s Get Shabby.

This time it’s a color challenge. Here is a peek at our inspiration picture.

Shabby-Chic-ColoursFor this challenge we were asked to use all the colors….which I just loved…so soft and shabby.

Here is my project….a layout of my Niece Olivia.

IMG_1605IMG_1619I dry brushed these flowers to coordinate with the shabby color challenge, then layered them over a great little mailing tag, pretty pearly stick pins, bits of lace and pretty doily donated by my dear sweet friend Anna.
