Shelly's Images Challenge

Hello there!  Are you ready for another fabulous challenge at Shelly's Images?
Boy, do we have a fun one for you today!

Our theme is:

and our FEATURED image this week is this adorable 'GIRAFFE' which you can purchase TODAY ONLY at a REDUCED PRICE ... how great is that!!

I had so much fun creating with this image this week!  
I decided to do a little 'playing around' in Word with it and here's what I came up with!

I tell you, I just started looking for everything that SPOTS or DOTS on it and this came together so easily!  The background papers are from one of those huge DCWV 12x12 packs you can get at Joann's.  The ribbon is Stampin' Up.  The big flower is Petaloo, small flower is prima and the brad is BoBunny.

 I've used Faber Castell Pastel Pencils to color my giraffes and chalk for the sky.  The birds in the sky were created with a Stampscapes rubber stamp (sorry ... I can't help but put birds in the sky ... it's an obsession with me!). 

Other qualifying challenges:
Divas by design 24: spots and/or stripes
Unique crafters 1: anything goes
Paper crafting journey 4: anything goes
Creative Mondays (Always crafting) 2: anything goes
Crazy challenge108: anything goes
The pixie cottage 110: anything goes
Simon says: anything goes
Party time Tuesday 57: anything goes
2 sisters 80: anything goes

Now it's your turn to share YOUR "Seeing Spots" creation.  I promise to come visit your blog and leave you a comment when you play along.  It's FUN ... come on ... you know you want to!  NOW, if you need more inspiration, just pop on over to SHELLY'S IMAGES and check out all the amazing creations the rest of the team has created!  They are awesome!

Hope to see you at SHELLY'S
