A New Challenge

Have you ever seen a photograph so beautiful that you wanted to immediately use it to create something amazing?   Do you find inspiration in everyday photos and want to preserve them in some way, shape or form?  Well, I have an idea.  I am currently working on a new challenge blog, based solely on inspiration photos.  Now, I know there are TONS of challenge blogs out there, and I'm sure there is room for everyone, so I'm going to dive in and give it a shot.  It's something I've been wanting to do for a while now.  The whole goal is to be inspired to create, in whatever medium you choose to use.  It can be paper crafting, baking, jewelry making, art...whatever you choose is fine with me.  It is still currently in the beginning stages and will not go live until March 3rd.  This challenge blog will have new inspiration photos posted on the 1st & 3rd Thursday's of every month and you'll have two weeks to play along with each challenge.  You can take anything from the photo you want to use, and we will have guest designers along with our design team, and some prizes here and there.  Doesn't that sound like fun?!

So, now I'm going to ask your help.  I'd really appreciate your feedback, and info on whether or not you think this is something you'd be interested in.  And, in honor of this new endeavor, I'm going to offer up some candy.  Yep, I'm going to give one lucky person, selected randomly, the chance at a $25 gift certificate to the place of their choosing.  The winner will be drawn on March 1st.  All I'm asking is that you mention it on your blog, and link back to this posting below.  Easy right?  The new blog is set up, http://foryourinspirationchallenges.blogspot.com/ but is still being customized.  You can sign up to follow if you choose, and I will be posting a Design Team call within the next few days.

I'm really excited, and hope this is something that works out.  I appreciate all of your help and input.

Have a wonderful day!
