Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge is ALL about the letter "B"
I was inspired to create a layout featuring shades of blue, bricks and butterflies.
When thinking of the letter B, a brick textured and stamped brick background made for the perfect background for my layout featuring a photo of sweet Meredith that was taken more than 10 years ago while we were vacationing at the happiest place on Earth     ~    Disney World :)
Pretty shades of blue and brown Distress Spray Stains made for the perfect color palette:
along with beautiful butterfly Remnant Rubs fluttering about:
Lots of bricks ~ both stamped and stenciled:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!

Be Sweet ;)

Mona as usual I can only tell the best compliments when enjoying your art. I'm always impressed and inspired the way you use old pics. In this ca a fab photo of Meredith. What a lovely way to bring some of all those old pics out to be admired. And surrounded by your art it cant get better. I love your different bricks, the colors, the bright green leaves. And I adore the way you added a filigree centerpiece to your lovely flower. I guess it's one of your awesome homemade flowers ? .
As always Mona...thank you for sharing. It's such a pleasure to study the details here...
Hugs from Monica...Spain
