Challenge #17 - Anything Goes - Photo Inspiration

Hello Crafty Peeps!

We have a Photo Inspiration this week.  Next Sunday is Cinco de Mayo and Kathi thought it would be great to use some of the wonderful colors displayed during this celebration, to create fun cards, tags, and layouts.   We look forward to seeing your designs.  We know we won't be disappointed.

Thanks for the fabulous creations in last week's challenge!  It is always exciting when we get to work with Rick St. Dennis' wonderful images.  This week, we would like to welcome Shelly's Images as a new sponsor.   Shelly is a very nice lady and we are so pleased to add her to our cadre of challenge sponsors.

Challenge #15 - A Sketch By Kathi Silvia



Hello, Crafty Peeps!  Kathi, the team and I want to thank you for yet another fabulous, creative week of entries.  Kathi and I look at all the entries; and, I think I speak for both of us when I say, we just can't stop oohing and awing over the wonderful creations we find here from week to week.  This week, Kathi has created a sketch for you to use in your projects.  So, if some of you are having problems getting your mojo working, we hope this will inspire.  As always, all projects are welcomed here, but we hope you will show Kathi some Luv and use her sketch!
