It's Storytime LIVE!

The i {heart} papers design team are challenged this month to make a project based on a story. My life almost exclusively revolves around children's and young adult literature and I had quite a pool from which to draw my inspiration. My project is based on the children's series, 'Redwall' by Brian Jacques. It's a wonderful series with themes of bravery, loyalty, and a very little romance.


I've chose to be inspired by the romance aspect of Redwall which is a very sweet innocent thing a little like Robin Hood and Maid Marion.

I chose my colours from my paper, Count Me In 6x6 pad from sassafrass lass. I wanted a sweet sentiment so I turned (again) to Yu & Me from Unity stamps because it has so many terrific <3 sentiments. It's a keeper!

This darling image is Mice Kissing by Stampavie. It's such a sweet spring or romance image - love it! This yellow twill stripe ribbon is a perfect match for the yellow in this paper. I don't often use the phrase 'perfect match' because I am normally resigned to 'as long as it goes'. This ribbon/paper coordination almost makes my heart pitty pat because it really is perfect together. *insert contented sigh*

I used Copic markers to colour my image and it was fun to colour such a sweet spring image - bring on the tulips and hyacinth in my own garden!!!
