Taylored Challenge

I think one of the very first blogs I ever visited was that of Taylor Van Bruggen. Taylor has a fabulous sense of style--clean, fab layouts, sharp colours and her photos are AMAZING. I admired her work for months and months before I ever had the courage to post my own work.

I had the opportunity to meet Taylor at CHA last year and I was finally able to share that I loved her work in person. We had the pleasure of attending a Copic event together.

Although I see her posts every week I have never participated in a Cupcake Challenges and I figured it might as well be now or never even if it is challenge #51!

I got the CUTEST little Anya stamp set called Pretty Hat and couldn't resist using it for this challenge.

Here is the sketch:




Here is my take:
