Inspired

I am so excited to join the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Design Team.  My hope as we journey through the next six months is that I inspire you with some creative ideas that you can use in your artwork and share with your friends and family.  So onward with our first challenge together!

Today's challenge is all about inspiration.  As you look at this photo, what inspires you?  Is it the colors, the layout, the patterns?

The first thing that caught my eye and set my imagination spinning was the strips of dot and striped papers in the center photo.  Add a few flowers sprinkled in and my creativity was off and running!!
How many of you took advantage of our great You and Me paper special over the last few months?  I loved this paper so much, I had to have more than one packet.  I really didn't want several of the same layout shown in the packet instructions, so I set out to create different one.  My first challenge was what to spell with the banner alphabets - like playing the game Text Twist I started rearranging the letters to see what I could spell (thank goodness there was no timer pressuring me though).  After I got my word everything else fell in place rather quickly.....as inspired by the photo first came the strips of dots and stripes, then everything else was just add ons.  I finished up with some cute little flowers made from crepe paper, how cute are they right?


Again, I ask you - what inspires you about the picture?  Be sure you share your inspiration piece with us at Heart 2 Heart!  Special thanks go out to our sponsors this month Sandra Van Woerden and Tonya Whitehurst, they've got some great goodies in store for you!!

If you are inspired to create this layout but don't have the paper - have no fear.  You can still order the You and Me paper packet CC1012B thru today....but hurry, this is a first come first serve item and the supply is running really low!! In addition to the products included in the You and Me paper packet, I used Library Cards stamp set and some Holly Hock ribbon from my stash.
