Inspiration Station Challenge 23

 Happy Monday, time for a new challenge at Inspiration Station and this time we are pairing up with Double Trouble.

Our inspiration picture for you is 

These were very popular when God and I were girls and seems they might be making a comeback.

As for Double Trouble they prefer something sweeter.

I'm pretty sure these two sweetie pictures are going to temp you!  And you have the opportunity to score at both challenges.

I was a bit stumped but not for long.  With some scrapbook papers from years and years ago (approx 15 years) a box was folded using 2 pieces cut down to 8" x 8" square.   This paper seems ideal as it has both the colours from the pictures and lots of heart images.

Every gift box needs a tag, this one was made from some of the left over paper.  An old Inkadinkado wood mounted stamped of heart balloons.  Stamped in red reveal times and then coloured with felt pens.

So don't despair if you, like me, are not keen on pretty hearts and flowers you can probably find something in these images to inspire you.  Go on I dare you make and share your take on our inspiration picture this time.
