Here is my page for the challenge

I used all 4 inspiration photos on this layout. I love the colour combination selected. I used flourishes from Photo 1, the layout is about a female puppy from Photo 2, I used ribbons and metal brads for Photo 3 and I used a border punch and journalled for Photo 4. My journalling reads "Our puppy Abbey was so little that she had to use her brother Pudge to lean on to feed. Pudge treated her like a Queen"
I used paper from my stash, rubons from Dream Street Papers, and Kimberly Poloson, Tim Holtz walnut distress ink, pearls, Bo Bunny brads, transparency and embellies from K & Co. I inked the edges on all my embellies and paper and popped up the flowers and crown.
