"Inspired By" Blog Hop!

Welcome to Joys Life  "Inspired By" Blog Hop!
This months blog hop is all about different things that might inspire us! 
If you have come from Junes Blog then you are on the right track! If not please start at Joys Blog so you do not miss out on any of the wonderful projects that we have put together for you today.
My project was inspired by 3 different things, that inspire me each and every day as I enter my craft room.
(or as my hubby would say "every waking moment")
 When you put all 3 together, you come up with one heck of a good project if I do say so my self!

This is a wooden picture frame that I decided to create which was inspired from a Family Photo taken in 2010.
 I first stained the wood then once that was dry I applied Mod Podge and Dino-Roar paper by Imaginisce, then another coat of the Mod Podge.
Both my Family and the beautiful shades of Fall colours our my # 1 reason for the inspiration of today's project.
 #2 reason for inspiration would be!
None other then the amazing!
Joy's Life Stamps Sets!
 The "Dino-mite" sentiment
is from Joy's Life "Lots Of Puns"
My #3 reason for inspiration would be my Cricut Machine and all 167 cartridge that are a must have.
All cuts are from my newest Cricut cartridge called "Dino Play" that I picked up on vacation. Finishing touches are embossing (Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder), Glossy Accents for the egg, another coat of Mod Podge and a trip to the Dollar store for the hat that my lovely grand daughter is modeling for the Frame.
Now it is time to send you off to the next stop but before I do how about a little Blog Candy for taking the time to check out my project. Just leave a comment and away to get in touch with you and one of my lucky followers could win the following.
