August Create To Live Challenge

The sweet ripe taste of …summer…success…anticipation…victory…
What word would you use to fill in the blank?

I am excited about this color challenge as I love the way these colors pop with each other.  I also am thrilled with the subtle patterns and textures. 

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 …. One of a Kind Winter, Susan K. Weckesser/ Unity Stamp Co.
