Now onto some awesome inspiration for you from the wonderful and very talented scrapper Julene

Hi Everyone, it is Julene here to inspire you.
Just to refresh your memory, the current sketch looks like this

 
I've decided to make a layout for my inspirational piece.
I've also used a turquoise pearl flourish. Its name is pearl grace teal if you want to buy it from FLOURISH WITH A BLING
 
So without further ado, here's my layout
 
My title in the bottom right hand corner says Gardening is cheaper than therapy and you get tomatoes.
 
I've chosen a photo of my beloved father's orchids.
He was a champion at growing them, and took delight in the repotting and display of them.
I've matted it on Pink Paislee Luxe circles and used rose border fabric flowers as my main embellishments along with the FWAB flourish. I've dotted a couple of tiny roses at the ends of the swirls.
Hope you like it.
 
Happy Crafting :)

And now we have some awesome inspiration for you from the wonderfully talented Jo.
 

Hello!  It's Jo here with this fortnights inspiration post.  I have a couple of projects to share with you.

First, I have created another card with the current sketch.  I pulled out my distress markers and coloured this sweet Tilda image.


I have used the new papers from Kaisercraft and added some bling.

The inspiration for this next project came from this plain glittery box that I was lucky enough to get with a gift in for my birthday last week.

 
Glittery enough but I thought I could "spice" it up a little more and then re-use it for my friends birthday next month.  This is what I came up with
 


I have added a die cut flourish and some bling flourishes along with a felt doily and a butterfly, both from Couture Creations.

I hope I have inspired you to go through your stash and pull out your bling and jump in and have a go with our current challenge.  This months random prize is generously sponsored by Flourish With A Bling

Looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations!

Until next time
Happy crafting!!
