A Photo Inspiration to Motivate Mr. Mojo

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! 

This week's theme is a
Photo Inspiration
(See picture toward the bottom of my post)
It's nice to have some visual inspiration, sometimes! You can choose to use the colors, the theme of the photo, or go off on a tangent because of some emotion a photo touches within your soul....however this picture inspires you, we want to see it in your project!

Today I am using the Dottie Baking image from Bugaboo Stamps.  If you've followed me for some time you know that Dottie is my favorite of the Characters that Jodie creates. She's so much fun to color! I had not used this one for quite some time, and with my recent purchase of this border for my Silhouette machine, I thought they made a great pair. 

I didn't want the border to take focus away from the image, so I created it in the darker color and left it flat and unembellished (for the most part). I did do a little bit of fine lining on it, but even that remained subtle. Dottie is popped up on pop dots to give her the dimension and the focus I was going for, while my melted Perel bead in the lower right corner draws your eye to my silly sentiment. :)

Now it's your turn to pick a favorite image, or try something new from Bugaboo Stamps, whip up your project and head on over to enter it into the Mr. Linky!

By entering your project, you could win up to TEN Bugaboo images!
Head on over to Catch the Bug to play along!

One more thing before I wrap this up....
I am now assisting the DT Coordinator with some of the more routine things at Catch the Bug Blog to fill in some time for our wonderful Ms. Min, who is expecting Baby #1, and is happily preparing for the arrival! I'm helping out with some posting duties, and I'm also helping out by choosing a Bugaboo Stamps Fan of the Month! So......if you're a fan of Bugaboo Stamps (and who isn't, right?!), make sure you're posting your Bugaboo cards on your blog because I'm poking around Blog-land looking for YOU! :)

Happy Crafting!
