Arrow IC117 ~ Blue Room (01-Mar-08)

Inspiration Challenge 117 ~ Blue Room

This week’s inspiration comes to us from Stampin’ Annie who recommended this soft, peaceful Blue Room from the Thomas Benton Gray House Bed & Breakfast in New Salem, Illinois.

Make sure you use the keyword: IC117 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card.

Gallery Link ~ IC117

My sample ~ Lace Sympathy

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, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. 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 for joining me on this inspiration journey.

Great color! My DD's bed is so similar to that, but much less dangerous-looking with the points

Thanks, Stef!

Default Thanks Stef

What a beautifully serene room that is. I loved the fresh look of the blue and white with a splash of roses. Mmmmmm.

So, here is what I came up with Roses on Blue

What do you think of my creation?

Hugs,
Karen

I love having these challenges on the nights I can't sleep, LOL. Thanks Stef and Annie for a good and inspiring piece....I used the white wicker chair from the photo to be my focus. I thought this Feathered Friends stamp was perfect.
