Inspired By #33

I am really enjoying Chicago with my hubby and CHA was amazing.  I am so glad that I was finally able to go!  Definitely in the heat of summer and this inspiration photo I have brings up summer feelings for me.  Makes me think of spending days at a summer cottage on the lake... not that I ever have but one can dream ;)

Now what will you do with this photo?  The colors, distressed, stripes, woodgrain, boating, the number...

For my project I was inspired by the woodgrain, the stripes (although my striped paper is mostly covered, LOL) and the colors. I used my Crate Paper Storyteller papers along with some Unity Me Documented SMAK stamps.  I cut the circle strip using my Quickutz  Circle Punches die.

I used this sketch from Stuck?! sketches, although I am not applying for the DT, just liked the sketch. 

I can't wait to see what you do!
