Double D - Blue & White

Hello blogger friends!
It's once again time for a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog!
Team Diane is your host today and their theme is 


check out this amazing mood board Diane has created ...

Of course, the gingham is what grabbed my attention
and I knew I had a roll of it just waiting
to be used so here we go!

Other than the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Chicken Wire Frame' the other panels were all off cuts from past creations.  I've also dug deep into my smaller paper packs drawer to find this OLD DCWV Dots, Stripes & Plaids paper pack which I used for the background.    The rectangle off cut is from the Paper Studio Country Road paper pack.

I do hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!
And, be sure to pop over to see what the design teams have created!  I tell you, these ladies endlessly amaze and inspire me.  I'm sure you'll be inspired also.
