The long way around

Good afternoon my lovely blog followers....

I have a page I wanted to share with you...I combined a couple challenges....lets see...first off is Archi-scraps for their picture inspiration....then Lasting memories their challenge was a bit hard for me Its called Country Charm (We're looking for "Country Colors" but this could even mean your country colors! Ex: Canada = red/white, USA = red/white/blue! Or just use a country color palette! We're also looking for a charm on your LO as well.) I don't really have red  so I went with what I thought country colors were..lol

So Now for Archi-scraps...after I saw the picture I really had no idea what I wanted to do for this challenge...it took me quite awhile to figure it out...this is what I came up with....

 Now I know it doesn't swirl...but when I was going through pictures from my last trip to Maine I came across one of this darn bridge in Boston ( I really hate bridges)....when I saw the peak it was just perfect for the challenge!



with pin and now you can see the charm too

the swirl flourish was inspired by the spiral in the picture and I added a butterfly charm (requirement for Lasting memories )

thanks for coming to take a peek!PS I had to retake a picture as I was cleaning my table I found the pin I wanted to use...it was a twist for Archi-scraps

  6. Do you know I think the tips of your bridge look like the top of the spire in the pic for Archiscraps. Love all your different elements.
