Rosie's April CT Challenge-What Inspires You?

Postby rosien » Sun Apr 01, 2012 4:01 am

This challenge is really wide open! Inspiration for crafty projects can be found in so many places, like our CT challenges, blog reading and Pinterest.

My challenge to you this month is to create a project based on an inspiration piece found on a favorite blog, Pinterest, something from the gallery or a prior SSZ challenge.

This layout was inspired by a Becky Fleck sketch posted on the SCT blog.

and here is my take on this inspiration piece:

Post your creation here as well as the link to the inspiration piece for a chance to win a SSZ GC!!

This was my inspiration:

Great layout Carolyn. I love that sketch. I used that sketch for my Krustyland layout.

Here is my layout for this challenge:

This is Mom (the lady near the top of the photo, not wearing the glasses) working at the telephone exchange just before she met my dad in 1952. The Graphic 45 Communique line was perfect for these photos.

based on this PageMaps sketch:

I love how you used all the blues on this layout, Ruby, even though it's for a girl. Still very feminine though. Great job!
