Arrow IC113 - Living Room [02-Feb-08]

Inspiration Challenge 113 - Living Room IC113

SCS member Anne (aka Itsapassion) sent me a link to an awesome blog. The blog is Swedish...so I can't read a word of it, lol...but she did point me to one particular post which included the attached living room ensemble. There is a link in that post to Zara Home, and the image is named zarahome...so my guess is that is where the living room ensemble originated. If you want more details, try the link to the specfic image grouping.

Make sure you use the keyword: IC113 (no spaces or extra characters)

My Sample -> Relax at the Beach

View IC113 Gallery

How to Play View the attached image. You may be inspired to recreate the piece - but that isn't necessary...get your inspiration from the colors, layout, or 'theme'. Don't worry - no card is 'wrong'! There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild -- be *inspired* and go get stamping!

Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Thank you.

Thanks for another great challenge!

I have to admit though, I have not had a holiday in a couple of years and I'm swooning over the beautiful, vaction-like room!

TFL!

Have a blessed day!

Oops, I didn't see the thumbnail attached to the challenge until just now. I watched the slideshow of images from the Zara Home website and saw a bedroom with grey and black in it that inspired my card attached:
