Calendar Girls ~ Photo Inspiration

Jeanette picked our theme this month and (once again) it was a great one!!
Woot! Woot!
In her own words:
This is a PHOTO INSPIRATION Challenge. But there’s a catch! You have to choose your own photo.
I want you to find a photo – it can be a picture you’ve taken (of a family member, a scenic drive, a food you’ve cooked, whatever) or it can be a picture someone else has taken. Maybe you even found it on the internet. After you’ve chosen the PHOTO you want to use, create a card/project inspired by that photo.
Of course on your blog post – when you show us your creation – we also want to see the photo that inspired you.

I chose to use this photo.

I hope Pansy doesn't see it, because it really is a terrible photo. UNTIL, you realize that EK took it of himself with my iPad. LOL
From that picture I came up with this card:

It also counts toward my hundred, bringing my total to 27 unique projects and 53 total. The image is Max by Country Bumpkin Stamps (hi Lorie) and the sentiment is by amuse studio.
Please check out the rest of the Calendar Girls blogs!
They love luv too!!
Thanks for stopping by!
