Our Creative Corner Inspiration Challenge

Good Saturday Morning!
Well yesterday my Mom left and has gone to spend her last couple of days with my sister and her family before heading home. It's so strange to not have her around. I'll miss seeing her but know that we will continue to talk several times a week. Thanks for the great visit Mom!
Today is another Our Creative Corner Challenge. This week we have an inspiration piece brought to us by Jennifer Meyer. Scroll down to see the picture of it.
Now if you know me, you know that inspiration pieces are always difficult for me....lol
When I saw the picture I jotted down a few things...
Banana, Cream, Apricot, Scallops, Tulips, Flowers, Red Gingham
Now the red gingham has been up for discussion with the girls...some see it...some don't...right Cindy? LOL! I see it on the chair cushions although it may be hard to see here.
Funny thing is that I hunted for my red gingham, found it and then forgot to use it...haha!
Stamps: Just Like You; Cardstock: Barely Banana, Apricot Appeal, WW, Apricot Appeal DP; Inks: Black, Celery, Apricot, Banana; Accessories: Circle Nesties, Small Corner Rounder Punch, PTI ribbon, Martha butterfly punch, Dew Drops, Dimensionals
Here is the inspiration piece. Pretty eh?
Be sure to check out all the other girls creations at the OCC!
If you decide to play along and upload to SCS please put the OCCC in the keywords so we can easily find your wonderful creations!

Thanks for stopping by today!
