Using an Ad as Inspiration - Queen and Company

Ever inspired by an ad in a magazine, a graphic on the front of a box, or something you see on Instagram?  Well, I was completely inspired by a photo from the 'ohhappyday' Instagram page.  When Wendy sent me the Circle Shaped Shaker, I new exactly what I was going to do.  It also helps share how cool all the embellishments are in the Queen and Company shop.  Here is what I did....
Here is the photo that I was inspired by.  Sometimes, a piece maybe inspiring and it takes you on your own journey.  This one, I duplicated almost exactly.  
I used the circle negatives from the dies in the Circle Shaped Shaker set, and trimmed some in half.  Then paired them with an opposite patterned paper to add more depth.  I riffled through the paper pads that I had and found EVERY color I needed. Finding the colored embellishments was super easy too.  Everything just pops off the black background.  
My boys favorite color is purple!  How could I not show you a close up of that section?  Since taking these photos, I have decided that the layout needs journaling.  I may add that to the back of the layout or a little under the colorful photo.  See below for all the bits and pieces that I used.  They are all extremely reasonably priced through the Q&C store.
