Welcome to the First Pinterest Inspired Challenge

Hello and welcome!  We are super excited to launch our brand new monthly challenge.  Pinterest has been a great source of inspiration.  So we'd like to share with you some beautiful images to inspire your creativity. 

This challenge blog is a group effort of my fellow design friends and mine.  I've known these ladies for sometimes, and bonded over the blog world.  We share similar styles and taste.  Since we live all over the world, there's no better way to strengthen our friendship than making a challenge blog together. 

Before we start, I especially thank Simonne Clay for endlessly working on the graphic and creating this blog.  This blog wouldn't be launched today if it wasn't for you, Simonne.  I also want to thank Anika Lerche, Dana Warren, and Francine Vuilleme for spending hours on Pinterest and selecting these fabulous images with me.  Last but not least, a big thank you to Amy Tsuruta for agreeing to be our very first guest designer and for her patience during the hot mess of launching our blog.  THANK YOU!!

Without any further delay, here's our August inspiration:

Joining us on our very first challenge is the FABULOUS guest designer Amy Tsuruta.  Amy is one of the founders of the wildly popular Coffee Lover Blog Hops, a super sweet blog friend and a terrific card maker.  Amy, THANK YOU for joining us and for being so patient :).

Here's Amy's take on the challenge.  I just LOVE her use of patterns and such a cute image.  

Next are the creations from our Design Team members.  Please visit their blog and share some love...

This challenge is sponsored by The Alley Way Stamps.  The winning entry will be selected by our DT to receive the Calypso stamp set.  Thank you so much Alison.
