Create to Live May Challenge


Do you look for Beauty each day?  If you take the time to look, smell, and listen, you can find Beauty All Around you.  Look in the room you are currently sitting.  Look in your home.  Look outside in your yard, as well as in your neighborhood.  Even when we are in a run-down area, I believe you can find Beauty if you are looking for it.  Look around and find some Beauty in your personal area!
We would love if you would share this with us and join us for our Create to Live Challenge.  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 and appreciated.  :-) May2014
Our prize package this month is …. Autumn Grunge, Susan K. Weckesser/ Unity Stamp Co. Stamp kit , Ranger Distress Ink, Ranger Archival Ink, and Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist.  So, pull out your supplies and play along - And don't forget to submit your blog post with our sidebar submission Inklinkz widget!
Last month’s winner is: Daniella Hayes

We can’t wait to see what you create and share with us.
