Happy Thursday!  I hope everyone is having a good summer.  I have begun homeschooling my girls but this week we moved our classroom to a campground.  We work on our schoolwork in the a.m. and have recreation all afternoon. it is time for another Divine Diva Inspiration challenge.  Lori sent each of us this photo to be inspired with:

 I was inspired by the sage panels, the distressed wood as  well as the big bloom in the photo.  So...I wiped off the dust on my Bella Blooms set from SU!!  I so love my SU sets and I use them so infrequently.  How sad!!  I really enjoyed creating with this stamp set.  I used one of the layouts from the Dirty Dozen challenges this past summer.
