I love that we all have different talents to bring to this World and there are so many ways to express creativity.  I find inspiration for creativity by so many things right around me.  You might find creativity in scrapbooking, mixed media, painting, sewing, quilting, beading, basket weaving, writing, and so much more.  How about welding, soldering, glass blowing, wood carving? There are just so many ways to be creative.  And wouldn’t you agree that creativity makes everything better?  What is your media for creativity? 

We would love if you would share 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.  :-)
