Create to Live February Challenge

Love is in the air this month and many of us are dreaming of Spring; the soft colors, the soft breezes, the beautiful blooms, and the return of singing birds.  Some of us find ourselves hunkering down during the winter and we get so busy with holidays and fighting off flu season that we forget to take a few minutes for ourselves to create.   So this month, we will start a creative challenge.

This challenge is for you to use the color themes and message theme in the picture above.  Take some creative liberty here to create based on how this picture makes you feel.  What does it inspire in you?  What creative ideas jump out at you first?

Create a project to share with us based on this picture above.  Write a blog post and share your project.  Come back here and link-up your blog post in the challenge submission in our sidebar to your left.  After you post your project, make sure to tweet about it, share it on Facebook and Pin it as well.  I’d love to see little ‘blooms’ of inspiration this month all over. 

Your project can be a layout, a card, a mixed media piece, or anything you create using this picture as your inspiration.  Using Susan K Weckesser Inc products are not required, but are ALWAYS welcome.  :-)

And, YES, we will have a prize drawn from the submissions.
This includes...
Heidi Swapp Memory folder
Heidi Swapp Color shine, blue & pink
Susan K. Weckesser Inc. : paper: tags & one sheet, stamp; little bit of Washi, and TCW stencil
Canvas Corp hemp rope & 3 canvas banners
ClearSnap: smooch 2 colours, 1 mix'd media inx, Color catcher
Offer Afternoon : sticker Alphabets
I’ll even throw in directions so that you can make a mixed media album like this here below.
