Happy Hump Day Everyone!!  I hope you are all having a great week!! 
 Today is my dear Daughter. Meghan's, birthday!!  My baby is nine!! Where does the time go.  Happy Birthday Meghan!!!

Today is also another fun Whiff of Joy Challenge!!!  This week's challenge is a fun one: Lace and pearls (with a Whiff of Joy image).  Any one who knows me knows that I just love adding elegant details!!

Here is my take on the challenge using the darling Kneeling Willow image from Whiff of Joy (also available at Stamp and Create)

I used a lot of scrap papers from my stash since I have been cleaning house lately.  I just love these colors.  I know one of the sheets of dp is from Cosmo cricket Material girl and another is from Basic Grey Nook and Pantry .  The flowers are Prima Teal Fairytale roses and Prima ivory roses.  The pearls are from ZVA Creative.  The image is framed with the Lacey squares, scalloped and classic circles spellbinders.  The sentiment is framed with the Scalloped and classic ovals.

For more inspiration for the Whiff Of Joy Challenge, please visit my dt sisters:  Chelsea,  Gio, Jane, KathrinKylie, Louise, Manuela.  Michele To join our challenge, please link your creation here.
