Preschool Fashions - How Inspiring!

If you've been reading here a while, you might know that by day, I'm a home daycare provider. I have the sweetest little bunch that come - some for a half day playdate, some afterschool. I continue to be inspired by the adorable things that they wear - I'm always jotting down notes from their graphic t's, or trendy little color combinations that they've put together.

Actually, I'll let you know that whenever I'm shopping, I'm always loading the iPhone up with photo inspirations, colors that look great together in stacks of sweaters, or when I notice hot new trends in the stores.... snapshot reminder.

So, with this photo for inspiration, and my Die-namic dies from MFT, I got to work searching through my patterned paper bins.

And, it didn't take me more than a few minutes to pull together just the papers for this job.

See, I would never have thought to use green for the background, except for the fact that it was SO eye catching on that little t-shirt. Fun!

I diecut the felted clouds twice and stacked them together for extra puffiness (is that a word?) and with a quick bit of linen thread, I hand stitched a quick border all around them.

I don't know why I don't reach for a clear cardstock card base more often, because I just love this.

A quick trim with MFT's Die-namic Scalloped Scallops with a bit of denim (because miss sweetie pie was wearing a pair of jeans to go with this cutie-t)

So here's what I want to know, where do YOU go for your inspiration, what's your favorite source?

Have a WONDERFUL day, and please stop by my challenge for a chance at goodies from TCP and MFT! You'll see all the details HERE
