July challenge is a bit pointy!

Well, here is something completely different.
This spiral building is in Cambodia .
Our inspiration for this month will test you.Some suggested spirals or pointy things, someone else said an ice cream cone .Our added criteria this month is to use a PIN.
Perhaps you could add a bead or two to an ordinary pin to add some colour.
We are sponsored again this month by Memory Maze chipboard.
Here's the link to their page and a picture of our prize.
Now here's some inspiration from our Design Team.


I was inspired by the lines from the steps in the inspiration photo and incorporated lined pp to the left of my photo.  Also, the cream colors (I used flowers & trim), the greens (leaves were added), and grey/silver (in which I added silver spiral paper clips and two stick pins). The criteria of spirals and/or hat pins were included amongst my flower cluster.  Home made gems were added as the flower centers and along the left of the photo.  Flowers are Prima, papers are My Mind's Eye and trim is from Webster's Pages.  The sketch is Page Maps (July 2008).


When I looked at the building I thought of quilling. I have added two small hearts with just a touch of quilling. I also added a big black sticker swirl to represent the swirl in the building as well. The black and white fabric flower is also made by twirling it around until it has a flower shape.

I have used angled tree branch chipboard, a hat pin & diamond shaped bling, from inspiration of the spiral building.

When I first saw the inspiration picture for this month it reminded me of an upside down thumbtack but my son told me he thought it was like a needle which made me then think of Cleopatra’s Needle in London, so this is what I have gone with.  I figure I will eventually get all my travel photos completed!!  I’ve used the colours in the photographs to determine my paper choices and added buttons and a pin.
This is Danielle, my niece who looks as sweet as anything but can have a very sharp tongue and attitude!!! I have used a hat pin in the roses in case you cant see it and using the word sharp in the title I feel meets the criteria!
 Congratulations and I will be getting your prize to you shortly.
