Case Study #147 - You're The Bee's Knees!

It's been a busy week for me.  Sorry I have been missing in action lately.  I've been running around a bit - I took my son for his physical - he's leaving for the National Boy Scouts Jamboree at the Summit in West Virginia in a few weeks and I have to make sure he has everything he needs.  I've also been working hard on some samples for the new upcoming Waltzingmouse release that starts today also!!  So make sure you come back and see what goodies Claire came up with to tickle your fancy!

Time for your weekly dose of CASE Study Inspiration!  CASE is simple - just check out the inspiration photo - decide what moves you - and run with it!  The muse this month at CASE is Lisa Spangler from Side Oats and Scribbles and here is her design. 
I see lots of neat things this week - lots of color, repeating patterns, triangles, that bitty black banner that jumps off the page...  Here's what I grabbed, that pennant shape for the sentiment,  and lots of  repeating chevrons (vs triangles) running all throughout my design - they're in the background paper and behind the sentiment.   
Told you I'm digging orange lately didn't I?  So sunny and summery it cant help but make you smile!!  So now it's your turn!  What grabs you?  How will you make this one your own?  You can see the designs from the rest of the design team by clicking on their names here.

I love the woodgrain arrow and I am totally loving the oranges you have been using lately. Every time I see those colors now I think of you! Great job on this week's card. I love it!!!

What a bright and beautiful card. I see exactly where all of your inspiration comes from, and you have done a superb job of capturing that and making this card your own. Jeanne written all over this one--I especially love that giant orange bow.
