Welcome to the next challenge here at FYI! We had some lovely entries for our last challenge, and are thankful for all who were able to join us. We will have the next Lovely Lotus posted on Friday, 12/9, so don't forget to check back then to see who we've chosen.
It's the first challenge of the month, and we're being sponsored by one of my favorites, Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps!
SCRS has some of the most adorable images. I'm a bit partial to anything with "Josh", because that's my BIL's name, and he gets birthday cards with him on them. lol Not to mention Sparkle is just the sweetest ever! If you haven't checked out the SCRS store, you should head over there to see what I'm talking about. You can find them HERE. Sparkle is being super generous and offering the following stamps to one lucky participant.
See?! Aren't they adorable? I do hope you'll get the opportunity to join us for a chance to win these cute stamps!
Now, I've got another announcement. I've added another fabulous designer to the group. Please help me welcome Rochelle Washington to the Lovely Lotus Design Team! She is amazingly talented, and when I realized what she was capable of, I had to have her on the team. Here is a bit about her, in her own words.
Hello my name is Rochelle Washington and I'm an addict! A paper crafting addict that is. I am married to the most supportive and wonderful man EVER and we have a son that is so supreme, so amazing that we named him after Jean Luc Picard of the Star Trek Enterprise (We named him Picard...I'm a Trekkie...don't judge. LOL!). I work as an Admin for an Architecture firm but, when I have a free moment I'm making SOMETHING! I've been a die hard paper crafter for approximately two years but, I've been crafting in some form or another as long as I can remember. I'm mostly a card maker but, I do enjoy creating tags, ATCs and mini albums. There is instant gratification when you make a card. With my hectic schedule, I like to be able to see results quickly! I'm so grateful to be given an opportunity to design for the For Your Inspiration Challenge blog! The design team is very talented and I'm always inspired by their creations. Well...what are we waiting on? LET'S GET INKY!!!
I can't wait to show you what she's done! But first, here is the inspiration photo for this challenge.
I'm completely in love with the rich, deep, vibrant colors in this photo. I love how the lit buildings reflect on the water, and how the architecture of those buildings and the bridge are set against the sunset. I'm told by my Lovely Lotus, Michelle, that this is a photo of her hometown of Brisbane. I'd love to visit and get to see this for myself. Wouldn't it be fantastic to be out in the water, on a boat, around this time? So, how are you inspired?
Our Lovely Lotuses have created some wonderful projects for you this week. Check it!
I'm totally blown away this week!
Remember, your interpretation of the photo is just that, your interpretation. There's no right or wrong. Just tell us a bit about how you were inspired as sometimes it isn't obvious. And, don't forget, you can create any kind of crafty project you like. The idea is to take inspiration from the photo to get your creative mojo flowing. This challenge is open until Wednesday, 12/14.
Please don't forget to link directly to your project, and not just your blog in general. General blog links will be deleted. No backlinking please. Also, should you be uploading to any online galleries, please use keyword FYI19, so that we can make sure to leave some love
Stay crafty my friends!
