Magazine Copy Cat Challenge

Debbie over at Debbiedoo's Blogging and Blabbing is hosting another one of her fabulous Magazine Copy Cat Challenge linky parties. These are so much fun! The object of the challenge is to find a picture from a magazine or catalog and "copy" it, putting your own personal touch on it. I found this awesome picture from Pottery Barn's online catalog and it's what I'm using as my inspiration:

And here is my version:








I love how this turned out! And it was so easy to recreate this look for under $10. I purchased all my supplies, which included the plate, bowl, heart dish, red hearts and table runner, from the Dollar Tree. I used a cursive script stamp that I had purchased a while back at Hobby Lobby and just randomly stamped my table runner in various directions. I also used the stamp on some ivory candles that I had. I already had the red placemat and I used a book box to elevate my candles and loving couple Willow Tree figurine, which was a gift to me on our last wedding anniversary from my hubby. I brought in a live ivy plant for texture and a bit more color. I took a scrap piece of linen fabric and folded it like a napkin which I then stamped with my rubber stamper. I have had the skeleton key for a long time, just waiting for a spritz of black spray paint. I made the tag by cutting it out of some card stock, stamping it with the rubber stamper and then handwriting my message on it. I tied it up with a scrap piece of red ribbon. So simple, yet so elegant!
