Photo Inspiration Challenge!

This week we are having a photo inspiration challenge.  Photos are a great way to spark your creativity.


Use the photo to find your creative inspiration. What speaks to you? The design? The colors? The images?

Take a look at the Design Team Members creations and be sure and visit their blogs for all the details!

 We can't wait to see what you create - using CTMH products, of course. Just get crafty, post your creation on line, and then copy and paste your direct URL into Mr. Linky, below.

Here are the updated rules/guidelines for our challenge:

* All links must be to artwork that fits the challenge for the week and contain Close To My Heart products. If it does not include CTMH products, the link will be removed.

* All links must be directly to the specific post with the artwork for the challenge. To do this, compose your post, publish it and then click the title of the post. This should take you to a page that has only that one post on it. This is the page we need a link to - not to your whole blog. If the link sends us to your entire blog, your link will be removed.

* Your blog post MUST mention that you are entering the challenge at H2H and link to our site. If you don't mention H2H in your post, your link may be removed. This is a new rule.

* Please consider turning OFF word verification for your comments as it makes it much more time consuming for our DT members to leave you comments.
 
Now it's YOUR turn!

I can't believe I am the first to leave my link for the challenge (woo hoo! so excited about that, lol) as I usually don't get a chance to create until later in the week. I also want to say THANK YOU to the design team for inspiring me with your creativity! Such beautiful artwork this week and every week!! (really like the photo chosen for inspiration too)!!

I made this card over the weekend. When I stopped by your blog this morning, I laughed out loud! The papers I used match your inspiration photo perfectly! I couldn't have planned it any better!

WHat a fun inspiration photo! Can't wait to play along. :)

Amy said...

Ummmm that photo screams at me! I will be playing this time for sure!

Love the new rules as well. It is always weird when you click on a link and you can't figure out why your looking at it. LOL

Thanks for the awesome inspiration this week. It is so bright and cheery and perfect for summer and spring artwork.

Sorry, I messed up linking again. For some reason I linked to my "post" page, not my blog. I fixed it and #6 Amy White is now posting to my blog. I guess thats what happens when you blog and link late at night. Sorry! ~Amy W.

So amongst the rain and dreary here this photo inspired me and I was able to create a large card...5 x 7 is not my norm...but I realize my card looks like a few others...I guess great minds think alike and it is awesome to see others ideas and perceptions.

Thanks for making me think "outside the box" on some of the stamp sets - it's great to have the flexibility to play with these challenges.

I just love this color scheme, in fact my sb room is painted in soft peach and pink, I like it ok but really wish I would have gone a bit bolder like this bathroom. Had to play this one that's for sure. LOVE all the design team's art inspiration too!
