Tulips again,

for a Copy Cat Magazine Challenge hosted by Debbiedoo’s Blogging and Blabbing

This month I’ve had a few posts about tulips.

They are fresh and beautiful.

I wished a you a Happy New Year with a picture of tulips:

I talked about how I made the natural frog to support them:

But before all that I was inspired by a picture from a Southern Living magazine.

~My Copy Cat Magazine Challenge~

for Debbiedoo’s Copy Cat Party

From last February, yes I have a magazine hoarding problem, there I said it!

They used red tulips and a real branch.

I used white tulips and a fake branch:

My copy cat fits my home and mood just fine.

Magazines are your friend,

use them to inspire a look that you love!

    I love that the grapevine serves two purposes. It acts as a frog but also looks lovely as a filler. LOVE this idea. Thanks for sharing!

    Very pretty. I’ve often been inspired to copy something from a magazine, but have yet to do it. I need to go and dig out my older magazines.

    I also hoard magazines!

    Have a wonderful Sunday!

      You really need to try it. It’s been the most fun, inexpensive thing that I’ve ever done. When I’m looking at magazines, I’m always on the look out for things that I already have to use. Then I just start reproducing!

    I like yours so much better, too. And I’m really wondering what you used to make your own photo look like a magazine? Oh, yes. I’m a hoarder, too.

    Oh my gosh, Debbie! This is soooo creative! I love that you made your own magazine cover with your copycat. I am big fan of tulips, too. I will be copying the idea of using a branch for a frog.
