Merly Impressions October Challenge

Well, I keep LOOKING over at MERLY IMPRESSIONS CHALLENGES...but it's been 12 months since I've played along!

The lovely Sandra P has created the sketch this month & I'm a BIG fan of her bright, fun style, AND I had this photo sitting to be scrapped [got a couple more, too, actually!]...soooo it all came together to create this. Thanks for the inspiration, Sandra!!!
 Nice'n'bright??!!! Dylusions ink sprays were NOT harmed - just much used - in the making of this page!
I just grabbed all the colours from those bright parrots, & went from there. That IS a paper clip...but it works, right? Garnered from the lovely Julie at Time to Create:)
Thought you'd like to read the story!! They really do have a strong errr 'presence'!!!
 The circle stamps are from 3rd Eye......I cut up some Studio Calico paper for the heart & the big 'hello'...
Some enamel dots & Glimmer Glaze....man, I ADORE that stuff!!!
 ...and used a roller stamp for the rest of the stamping!
So, there you have my bright LO!!
Thanks so much for looking ~ and as always, Happy Scrapping!
