ESCAPE by Mandy Zimmerman

Thank you Tusia Lech for hosting this month's fun challenge here at Berry71Bleu!   She loves drinking coffee, creating pretty things, watching sunsets and smelling flowers. Things do not have to be big, to be pleasant!

My take on this month's "Simple Pleasures" challenge is my love for flowers, gardening and relaxing by the pool-
 I loaded on the gorgeous "bling" from the design team sponsor Molossi -
 I tucked in some flower images and wording from our design team sponsor darkroom door-
The photo was taken more then 3 years ago before we had flooding in our area.....The flowering plants you see in the photo surprisingly came back and were not damaged.
  Here is a close-up of the stenciling/heat embossing/misting:

 Below shows the board of inspiration for this month's May challenge:
Please feel free to inspire yourself with anything, what simple pleasures mean to you. Tusia created the above board using some wonderful images from Pinterest - whether you prefer muted colors and simplicity or bold, fresh colors and profusion, I hope you find something for you.
Do you feel inspired?  There is still some time to join our challenge this month :
