New Challenge

Hi Friends

It's time for another Everything but the Kitchen Sink challenge. We've decided to do something different for our end of the month challenge. It's going to be a hostess choice sort of challenge, so you will likely see a lot of variety in the upcoming months! Fun, right?

Well, for this month's challenge, I get the privilege of hosting. I immediately wanted to do an inspiration challenge based on a travel bag I have. Check out the inspiration photo below:

The challenge is to use this bag (which I love) as an inspiration for your piece (card, scrapbook page, art, whatever your heart desires). You can use the colors the pattern, again, just go with what you are "inspired" to create.

Here's what our fabulous design team has come up with

Kandi (our amazing guest designer):





Lynnette (me):

Lilly Bimble is sponsoring the challenge this time and is giving away 5 images to the winner! How generous is that. They have a wide variety of digital images to choose from. Whoever wins this one is going to have a great prize package to play with.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!
