PCJ Challenge 16–Photo Inspiration

Hi everyone, it’s Lisa here. I do hope you’re enjoying the school holidays, whatever you’re up to.

This week we have a photo inspiration challenge for you and you have two weeks to link up your creations – plenty of time to conjure up some magic.

Here’s the photo. I took this back in 2009 on my honeymoon in Las Vegas. The photo is of the Chihuly Glass “Fiori di Como” ceiling in the lobby of the Bellagio. Gorgeous place, I highly recommend it.

You might be inspired by the flowers, the colours, the shapes… whatever springs to mind when you see this photo.

Once again we have a wonderful sponsor with us this challenge. Digital Delights by Louby Lou


and they are providing the randomly chosen winner with

3 Stamps Prize Badge


We have another crop of wonderful guest designers with us this week who have all been inspired in different ways

Elaine – has used the colours of the image in this beauty


Eemeli – I love this image, it’s the teddy equivalent of puppy dog eyes! Eemeli has been inspired by the colours and flowers
