Lots of Inspiration on a gloomy day!

It's a yucky, gloomy day here - we're up to get about 4-5 inches of rain today....yes - today - within the next 24 hours.  YUCK!
Anyway, for a brighter color combo, I found this adorable project - I just love it!  You can find it at the Lucky Girl Crafts blog Friday Fun Challenge.
I also found another great sketch by Cherie at Sassy Lil' Sketches to help me out.
And here is my bright and cheery little layout!  A tea party complete with banner, flowers and bling!  I used the banner, journaling card and vintage girl square from Pretty Little Studio.  The rhinestones are from K & Company.  Rose Glimmer Mist.  Everything else is SU - the new Fun Flowers die cut, Sweet Stitches DSP, Sweet Buttons embosslit, and coordinating button.  Background papers are Wild wasabi and Daffodil Delight.
Final inspiration for now comes from Page Maps.
Now you can see how gloomy it is.  I couldn't get the picture any brighter than this for this page!  Grey skies....go away!
Here's a little closeup.  I used a set of papers and stickers from CTMH as well as a few embellishments from K & Company and some packaging tape made by Making Memories.  I also spritzed the background with Rose Glimmer Mist using my Tim Holz glimmer screens.
