How about a little bit of "Distressed Inspiration"???

Good Morning my Blogging friends, I'm just a little late in getting my post up for this weeks Elphine House Australia challenge   What a busy day I had yesterday trying to get my computer completely re-done.  After many hours of set up, and downloading and installing updates etc... I'm finally able to sit down and get my thoughts together for my post.  The little quirks that I'm trying to work out and put back to the way I had them are nothing major, and I can deal...  Lol

 Okay, without any more time wasting, I'm going to get right down to sharing my creation with you. I've created a sort of "Smash Book" of sorts, with some inspirational quotes inside...  I kind of like the idea...  I have a couple of others in the works too.  Can you say time consuming?!?!...

Talk about some distressing - Did I go "Distress Crazy" or what?  Those pages were actually made out of plain pink cardstock that I just randomly swiped some bleach across... I love the effect.  So these pages have been bleached, sprayed with water, wrinkled and run through my zutter distress it all.. and I'm loving the volume it gives, and the totally worn look I have created. 

When I colored my sweet little "Daisy" from Elphine House Australia, I tried to color her shirt in the same manor.  This little sweetie was colored with Copic markers.
