Photo Inspiration at The Cutie Pies

Good morning.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend.
The weather wasn't too great but the company for me was perfect :o)
I also decided to have a sort out of some crafty stash - desperately trying to find a home for the lastest arrivals into my little crafty haven!!
Whilst sorting out my dies - finally getting them into some sort of order - I discovered I had this one twice!!!

So if you would like to give it a good home please add (D) after any comment you may wish to leave at the end of this post and I will draw a winner at the end of the week.

So today sees a new challenge over at 

and this fortnight we would like to see your cute projects using the following photo as inspiration:

Here's what I came up with:

My scrummilicious Grand-daughter Lola Arizona will be two years old next week - I can't believe how fast those years have gone!!! 
This is one card I have made for her - to be sent from either Jack or Aaron & Kerry.
No excuses from me either for using some more of the gorgeous Bo Bunny Isabella Design Papers :o)

Card Ingredients:
Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Papers: Bo Bunny 'Isabella' - MCH 
Flower: Bo Bunny 'Blush Daisies' - MCH 
Memory Box: Precious Hearts - MCH 
Spellbinders: Romantic Rectangles - MCH 
Spacer and Pearl Medallion - Hobby House 
Ribbon from stash
