EEEEEEEEEK Mid Week Reminder for the House Mouse Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Critter alert :)

but before I get on with it, I just have to say thank you to Marianne, I won her candy and wow wow wow was the selection gorgeous, just had to play, okay played a lot.  On this piece you can see the Memory Box die that was in the package, more pieces will follow :)

Here is my design team inspirational piece however please do hop over to see the rest of the teams wonderful creations.
Now I have to apologise for the photographing, such glare again, but then it could be my eyes!!
I made an oval scallop grand easel.

The base layer is a lovely blue with Papermania Mono Yellow papers.  The image has been framed by the Memory Box die and little pearls added around the nestie scallop.  Lace has been added under the second oval and an array of yellow flowers licked with a little platinum stickles.

I have taken several photographs
this one showing the die's a little closer

This one of the flowers just showing the lace too

This is the inner return with a little bow to be the stop for the easel.

The image coloured in copics  is called Olive a Party.

Also if you have created a HM Creation why not display it at
