Why Can't Dogs Wear Sparkly Shoes? (& 200th post giveaway!)

The challenge over at The Studio this Sunday is to take inspiration from an image found by the lovely Valerie on Pinterest.
I took inspiration from the photo in two different ways, first I echoed the bright colours through my choice of papers (I've used Echo Park's 'This&That Graceful'), and second I used a couple of my handmade crochet flowers to add dimension to the page. 
The title is built up with alpha stamps, Thickers and October Afternoon alpha stickers. I also added some washi tape and bakers twine. Pop over and check out what the rest of the Design Team did - it's amazing how many different variations there are from the same inspiration!
I can't believe this is my 200th post! Big thanks to everyone who reads my little blog regularly, I appreciate all of your visits :D 
As a way of saying thank you I've got a little giveaway  - just leave a comment on this post to be in with a chance of winning this Mini Smash book! You have until the end of Friday 23rd March to leave a comment, and I'll pick a winner on Saturday. Good luck!

Gorgeous layout & every dog should have a pair of sparkly shoes, although my dog would disagree (boy dogs have no love of sparkle lol)
