Pile It On! Challenge - Be Happy

The theme of this week's Pile It On! Challenge is:

'Be Happy'
We want to see projects showing happiness or things that make you happy.


 We are sponsored for this challenge by Jellypark...not sure what the prize is, but I'll update this post when I find out.

The DT were given a few Jellypark images to play with...and I chose 'Girl & Dog'...I used to love walking our dogs when I was little...so this image makes me happy :0)
As she's all wrapped up in her winter woolies & coat, I decided to go for Autumnal colours...and used papers from the My Mind's Eye collection 'Bloom & Grow'. I distressed all of the edges using 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Ink...then used my distressing tool, and added faux stitching with my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I cut the flowers using my Tattered Florals die, adding buttons threaded with twine to their centres. The lettering is from the '72 & Sunny' pad by We R Memory Keepers...I toned down the zingy colours with some more 'Brushed Corduroy' ink.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
