Magazine Copy Cat Challenge!

There's a magazine copy cat challenge afoot!

It all started at Debbiedoo's blog and if you click on the blog link, you can see what the other copycats are up to.

I love magazines. They're full of so many great ideas and I always find inspiration between the pages whether it's Victoria Magazine or Vogue. So after deciding to participate, I had to find an image I wanted to re-create. There were so many, it was really hard to narrow it down to just one.

The magazine photo I chose to imitate was shot outside. So I thought, I'll do this outside, but then I didn't like the way the pictures turned out.

So I thought... hmmm... maybe I should try this inside.

Here is the original page from the May/June, 2010 issue of Victoria Magazine:

Below is my inside version. I switched the fruit to strawberries and since I didn't have a taller jar with a lid, I used a vase. The only thing I had to buy were the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by and having a peek! And thanks also to Debbie for hosting this event!

Michelle, I was on you site early this morning but blogger was giving me a fit and wouldn't let me leave a comment. So I going to try this again.

I love your inspiration photograph and I'm amazed at how you were able to capture the same feeling. Hopping over from Debbiedoo's Magazine Copy Cat Challenge.

Oh my, you are wonderful at this! I love your breakfast table kind of combinations. The sharp colors of the flowers and the bright sun contrasting with the vintage books. Mm, mm, I love it.

Thanks for sharing.
