Spring Fling Challenge!

Spring has officially arrived and everyone's projects across the web depict this.  You'll find fresh color schemes, spring flowers and much, much more.  It is fascinating how just a change in the weather can bring about a change in trends and what product people are choosing to use at the moment.


I thought I would see what some of my design team members were feeling inspired by this spring and had them share their inspiration pieces with you.  It was so interesting to see how they were all different yet had an underlying common thread.  I hope you will enjoy what they have put together for all of you today.  It is just AMAZING eye candy, if nothing else!!!

So, without further ado, here are the inspiration pieces from the team.  You can click directly on the link above each image to read more about their projects on their individual blogs.  Take your time, enjoy each word and really feel the awakening of spring deep down in your creative soul!

    I’m really missing you Nichole. I bet you’re busy and wrapped up with family and business – but I’m missing the occasional posts with a recipe or book reading that you used to post. Maybe you don’t have any time to be doing much of this outside stuff with how fantastic the business is doing, but I just wanted to let you know I’m missing you! Hope all is well. Take Care, Roxanne

    Love the challenges; I must have looked at every PTI stamp set I own 3 times (at least) yesterday trying to devise a “vintage” card. Being short on time was my enemy, but the challenges are sooooo inspiring!!! Thanks everyone at PTI!!!

    Thanks for the fabulous challenge! I loved it. I would love to see some more of Nicole as well. Love to hear about your other passions like cooking, violin or entertaining. I am sure you are fabulous, just missing that side of your blog!

    It’s a good life!

    I think I’m too late to be entered in the challenge, but I was so taken with Becky O’s inspiration piece that I was determined to finish my card and play along. Thanks for a fun challenge, Nichole!
