For Your Inspiration Challenge # 6











Hola, Chicas! Thanks for stopping in!  Today is my first official post as a DT member over at For Your Inspiration. I'm so excited! It's also the first challenges for Debby and Sara. Yippee Skippee! We have a really great group of stampers assembled. Be sure and take a look and play along with us. There is a million dollar prize if you do. Um..ok, maybe i'll just flash a million dollar smile..lol. :)

Here is this week's fabulous inspiration picture:





Is that not so vibrant and beautiful? Oh gosh..I have always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon. They used to have them here in Nashville every year around my birthday, but I always chickened out..lol. Maybe i'll do it this year if they come. I think it would be so exciting!!! Have any of you guys ever been??

Anywho, so here is what I was inspired to create from this photo:




My initial thoughts were about ascending and that brought to mind this PTI set, Star Prints, and one of the sentiments: Reach for the highest (star). I thought it felt appropriate here. :)


Be sure and see what the other ladies have created. It's all SO fabulous (how many times have I used that word in this post? Any? It feels like i've said it a bajillion times today already..lol). Here are the rest of the ladies:




Have a wonderful day! Please come and play with us! :)
