Good morning and happy Tuesday!  I pretty much missed most of yesterday (Monday) due to sleeping to try and get rid of this hideous cold.  Hope all of you are staying healthy.  I am hoping for warmer weather as well – only been in the 50s the past few days after a week of 70s.

Ok, enough of my whining.  A quick note that if you are waiting for an e-mail from me, I am hoping to have all those answered by tomorrow.  This week is busy but I should be able to get some computer time in over the next couple days.

So, we have a NEW CHALLENGE for you today at THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE CHALLENGE and it is photo inspiration.   As you can see, our photo today is all about gardening, so let’s see what you are inspired to create by looking at it!

Remember, you have until 11am EST on Monday, April 30 to enter.  You are not required to use an image from THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE, but if you do, you will be entered twice per creation for purposes of our drawing for the winner.  You can also get 2 entries for each scrapbook layout you submit.

My creation today features “Daisys” digital stamp from THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE.  I have colored it with Copics, using the photo as inspiration for the colors I chose.  I cut using Nesties and then daubed with Memento ink.  Papers are from Bazzill and Coredinations.  I embossed Bazzill piece with Cuttlebug EF.  Ribbons are from SU (green) and Michael’s.  Bling from my stash.  Hope you like it and will come play along.

Additional challenges:
CRAFTY BOOTS CHALLENGE – no girls allowed
CREATIVE MONDAYS – yellow and sunshine
HOUSE OF GILLI – ribbon and sparkles
LOVE TO CREATE – anything goes
PAPER CREATIONS INK – April showers bring May flowers
PAPER PRETTIES – pink and green
