First of all, I better get my apologies out of the way
1. I am sorry there are so many animated ads on the site I have chosen for our challenge. Just pretend they aren't there.
2. I am also sorry if you get hooked on this site, looking at all the beautiful photographs. There are literally thousands of them, and I spent quite a bit of time just enjoying the world that I live in through these talented photographers' eyes.
This week’s Inspiration Challenge comes from a site that I stumbled upon while looking for some photography tips: BETTER PHOTO.
Once I found out how to navigate to the list of photo subjects, I was amazed at what is seen through the eye of a camera held by someone who obviously knows what they are doing.
There are pages and pages and thousands of photos to see, and I don't want you to get discouraged or not want to play because of the large-ness of the site. So....
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded twelve of my favorites - more than we usually have, but since the site is so big, I thought I would give you more choices in case you didn't want to spend time looking on the site. The first 8 are attached to this post, and the next four to the following post (#2).
Remember to let us know which item from Better Photo inspired you.
Use the keyword: IC323 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.
I am guest hostessing for Stephanie while she is on vacation for the next week~!
How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. 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). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.
You are right, Judy.....this is a VAST site filled with SOOOO much inspiration. I thought of something in my home and then did a search on Better Photo to come up with my inspiration for today's card. Thanks for this wonderful site...worth bookmarking.
Beautiful site! I made this one in the wee hours last night as I have to head to a swim meet with my kiddos today. Back to comment later and maybe pull off another card! For now, here's my Still Life Pear

Thanks SCSers for all your encouragement!
Here is my card. LOve those pictures you posted. I finally decided I was most inspired by the blue flower, so I did 2 cards for that. This is my first time doing an inspiration challenge, and I really enjoyed it! Thanks for a great challenge!
This is my second card for today's challenge. Hope you all like it. The pics. really don't do them justice. I really enjoyed this challenge. Once again, my inspiration was the blue flower pic.
thanks for looking.
