Inspired creativity...

So this week I finished 3 projects that were all inspired by different things. The first project I finished was my spring mantel banner (finally!). The gorgeous weather we have been having really put me in the mood to create it and I LOVE how it turned out! The next 2 projects are LO's inspired by different blog challenges. The first challenge was for the May GDT call for Sketchy Thursdays. The next one was for the latest challenge going on over at Scrapping the Music. I had never heard the song they are using but one of the lines really struck me and I knew what pictures I wanted to use!

I'll start with the Sketchy Thursdays LO. The photo is of my oldest daughter. She and I spent a gorgeous day at the local farm park for their Harvest Festivities. We had such a fun time and I got some beautiful photos of her that day. This is one of my favorites, she had just come out of the sunflower garden maze and found this flower on the ground!

This next LO is for the challenge on the Scrapping the Music blog. The line I used is "Everything is still the same except the time." These are some pictures of my husband and I over the course of our almost 9 year marriage! I used 2 different Nikki Sivils Lines for this LO too!

And lastly I have my spring banner. The base was made by taking apart the Cosmo Cricket blackboard album that I received as part of my goodie bag from Scrapbook Generation at their Grand Re-opening festivities! The rest is just stuff from my stash!
