Inspired by Robin Williams

I was very saddened by the passing of Robin Williams, a man who brought so much joy to so many people. It made me smile to see that the August Inspired By... challenge at Mei Li Paperie, is this:

This is what I created:

I was inspired by the black & white photograph {I altered my photograph using Photoshop Elements ~ back to basics with a layer and an eraser brush} and I also took inspiration from Mork's famous rainbow suspenders!  As a child I loved watching Mork & Mindy on television, and like so many people, that fun character was my first introduction to the magic of Robin Williams:

My layout was also inspired by the August challenge at Creative Embellishments.  The picture element is the rainbow, and I used the 1960's song title "Colour My World" (Petula Clark).

Echo Park Summertime - Alpha Stickers letters & scallops
Carolee's Creations/AdornIt Dance - Cadence patterned paper
Bella Blvd Sunny Happy Skies - Borders n Blocks patterned paper (fussy cut rainbow)
