Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop

Welcome to the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop!! I love blog hops so I signed up right away when this one was announced. The last one was a ton of fun too!
Last time we were given a sketch to use if we wished, this time we were given an inspiration picture. Ain't it purty? I loved the colours and the idea of the different patterns on the bench and cushions, and the squares on the wall so I went with those ideas.
I used an image from The Places You'll Go and paired it with some October Afternoon Fly a Kite patterned paper. The quote is from the book "Guess How Much I Love You" which is still one of our faves around here. I coated the rocket ship with Sakura Clear Glaze pen and used Sakura Stardust pen on the flames and stars to make them sparkly. I also added some baby braddies in the corners.
Thanks so much for hopping by! I hope you'll take some time to visit all the other amazing bloggers participating today! The complete list is just below! Later taters!
