Challenge #26

Before I get to this week's challenge, I would like to introduce you to our new DESIGN TEAM MEMBERS!
Thanks to all of you who shared your fabulous entries with us this last few weeks, and I do mean fabulous!! You all made it very difficult to choose just 2 new DT members!! We actually decided to invite 4 of you instead of just 2!!

Ann (Raindrop Echo Designs)
Mandy (Diaries of a craftaholic and demented housewife)
Claire (Crafty Bits by Hope Jacare) Current Guest Designer
Shelly (Shellys Card Blog)

Please welcome our new DT members! We are very excited to have them join our team!!

We will reveal their first challenge work with you all next week!

Now on to our current challenge: It is an INSPIRATION CHALLENGE this week!

Please have a look at the lovely art work of Lauren Alexander and let the colors, or images spark your imaginations and inspire your own unique creations! I am directing you to her blog, as her shop is closed until August 2nd! :( I had no idea when I set the challenge.) But, please do visit her ETSY SHOP as it is a real treat!!

I am sponsoring this week's challenge with an assortment of Stampin' Up! products. We will randomly pick a winner at the end of the week, so be sure to link your creations no later than Tuesday August 4 midnight EST time.

Have fun with the challenge! Here's what the DT came up with this week, for your inspiration:
