Tropical Paradise inspired by CAS23!!!

Howdy everyone!!!

Have you seen who made it onto the Dirty Pile this month??? I'm so thrilled to see two of my very sweet blogger friends Julie Warner and Jami Bova to be announced as *Dirty Girls* - WAHOOOOO!!! CONGRATS JULIE AND JAMI!!!

I hope you have some time to check them both out - they ROCK and are AMAZING STAMPERS!!!

The Dirty Dozen theme this month is *Tropical Paradise* - too fun to pass up!!! I combined the DD Challenge with the Clean and Simple #23 Challenge - it's an art.com inspiration site.

I chose this Palm Tree poster for my inspiration since it fits the *Tropical* theme and I get to use my newly released Beach Life Set from Flourishes :)!!!

I added a really cool new product from MuddPuddles.net to the bottom of my inked image!!!

You can see it a little better on my close up photo!!!

Hope you like it???

Thanks for stopping by!!!
Have a great day!!!

Silke this is beautiful. I love the clean crisp look. I think this is a great way to use this set. I was wondering what size the palm trees were.... I too am excited about the dirt pile. It will be a fun 6 months for them...
