Just Us Girls #151


Good morning and welcome to my final week as Guest Designer for Just Us Girls.  I've had such a fun time playing along and want to thank the JUGS ladies for inviting me to be a part of such a great team for the last 4 weeks!  This week we have a photo inspiration challenge.  I was drawn to the tea cups and tea pot and was planning to use the soft pastel colours of the photo as well - but then I got side tracked.  The sentiment made me think of starting the morning with a nice cuppa and that made me think of a sunrise which led me to the medallions.  (It made sense in my brain anyway...) So where will your brain take you when you look at this picture?  Pop over to the JUGS blog to see the gorgeous gallery from the Design Team and then play along!  You have until 9pm EST on Thursday, 30 August.


I'm also going to enter this at the Focal Point Challenge at the Moxie Fab World.

Love the layered doilies and the cute little lace stamped along the horizontal. Thanks for being a great Guest Designer this month too :)

I do like it when inspirations go off on a tangent. :) I think this is a great card that still has its roots in the challenge photo. Nice! (Mmmm, tea...) :D

So glad I'm not the only one who gets inspiration ADD ;) At least you could follow the idea trail back! I really love the lacey patterns, and these colours are fab together - the purple really pops!
