Challenge 12 Opens !!

Hello everyone, and welcome to challenge 12, a photo inspiration challenge.

Our thanks to Your Paper Pantry, who is sponsoring this week's challenge ! A one year subscription is the fabulous prize our first place winner will receive !

Isn't this an incredible photo ? And so perfect for today, when you may be finally sitting down to an uninterrupted cup of coffee now that school is back in session. It was a hot summer, but now you can settle back with something warm in your tummy and your scraps by your side !

Our design team has really ranged far with this challenge, lots of different ideas, but, somehow, that hot coffee or tea keeps appearing ! Let's see what Wednesday's group has to offer ...


Jan enjoyed creating this optical illusion. The glitter flair, the tag flair and the coffee steam combine to make a cohesive look in this invitation to a coffee klatch.


Regan found inspiration in the colors of this weeks photo and created this 12X12 layout. She used her sewing machine to stitch along each piece of the patterned paper. For some fun and interest, she added buttons and a crazy quilt raffle ticket! For detailed photos and information please visit her blog.


As soon as Liz saw this photo challenge she knew she wanted to scrap her favourite tea pot. She is not a coffee drinker but loves to drink tea and lots of it. She used the Graphic 45 'Hallowe'en in Wonderland' collection as the tea pots on the patterned paper as well as the colours worked perfectly with her photo.


As soon as Caroline saw the picture inspiration this week she knew that her coffee sentiment stamp would be perfect for this challenge. She used the coffee mug from Wall Decor and More and of course included BLING!!!!

AND, we will be back tomorrow with three more designs for you. Be sure to link up with us on Facebook - Beth has some sweet prizes coming up there too !!
