We thought we would start a short inspirational series with the Blog Hops for the next few months as a fun way to spice things up! This month we are providing you with a beautiful photo to help trigger some creative ideas with color! This inspirational photo is just dreamy and it's the perfect thing to give you a creative jumpstart that will lead to nothing but fabulous results! We look forward to seeing everyone's interpretations using this inspiration! 




I loved Nichole's card from her most recent release.  I wanted to try her technique and it fit so well with this month's blog hop inspiration photo.



Thanks for stopping by.
Can't wait to see what you've made!!
