some inspiration for my craft room

i love the colors this week at the play date cafe! have you seen them? first of all, green and teal - check check!! and then add in red. please. you had me at green and teal. :) so i decided since i love these colors so much to make two different wall art pieces to hang in my very barren craft/office! woah, i'm getting ahead of myself, here is the color inspiration:

and here are my wall hanging's:

they're sort of a combination of a piece of art, and a scrapbook page! lol! i saw these pieces of wood on sale at michael's and i thought...i can do something with vwa-la!
first off, here is the first one i made:

it's of me and my little mann - and he's wearing his hand knitted gnome hat - which was just too cute! sidenote: i've called him my little garden gnome since the day he was born. i used a stamp from wilson's designs for the polaroid and then lawn fawn's harold's abc's for the sentiment. i just love the colors!

and here's the second one:

it's of me and my husband. aww. again, how can you go wrong with the colors? you can't. but i digress. i made the felt hearts and sewed on some brown buttons (another color that goes absolutely fab with the others if you ask me!). the red foam letter stickers were from the dollar section at target last year during valentines day! they weren't quite vibrant red enough for me, so i used some glossy accents on them to make them have a little shine. :)

so, there they are. my inspiration pieces for my room! i am definately going to make some more. but i'm not sure if i want to continue using those colors, or switch up. because believe me, i could use those colors until they're gone! lol!
