Create to Live March Challenge

I was just tickled to see this challenge created by Susan Weckesser this month, especially since it is our birthday month.   Yes, I think I’m going to find a reason to celebrate everyday this month.  So HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Susan.  I’m so honored to not only work with you and celebrate a birthday month with you, but especially that I can call you my friend!  (pssst, you can hop over to Susan K Weckesser's Facebook page and wish her a happy birthday today, March 2, too)

How many ways can you Celebrate the Everyday this month?  We don’t need a birthday or special occasion to celebrate.   Look for the little things in life and find a reason to celebrate the TODAY, the MOMENT, the TRIALS, and the TRIUMPHS!

This challenge is for you to use the color and message themes 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.  Use hashtag #createtolive when tweeting or pinning so we can find and share your posts too!

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.  :-)
Our prize package this month is a great starter set of Susan K Weckesser Inc stamps and stencil and a happy set of Faber-Castell Mixed Media Aquarelles & Ink.  
So, pull out your supplies and play along - And don't forget to submit your blog post with our sidebar submission Inklinkz widget!
