Inspiration Elevator Celebration and Lots of Giveaways!

Welcome to another Inspiration Elevator reveal! We are thrilled to celebrate the end of our first year of Inspiration Elevator challenges and are anticipating that the second year will see that creative growth continue to go UP! To celebrate our first anniversary and our fabulous designers, Christa and Ann decided to challenge our designers to take an in-depth look at a fellow designer's artistic portfolio via her blog, choose elements from that designers creations,and incorporate them into her own work. In other words, we are encouraging a scrapLIFT! Rather than a mere copy of someone else’s work, this is a stylistic scraplift that should inspire each designer to grow creatively as she is inspired, yet remain true to her own style.
As the second year of this creative journey begins, and as the popularity of Inspiration Elevator increases, we have created a new blog for our Inspiration Elevator Challenges. So, if you want to play along you can find the challenges and links to the inspiration all in one place! To celebrate our first year, our hopping will incorporate RAKs along the way – how exciting! Now, before you go hopping along, we want to let you know of a few personnel changes.

While, we are so excited to welcome back most of our original design team members for year two, we are saddened to be saying goodbye to Audrey Yeager. Audrey has creatively embraced every challenge over the past year, and has been a super part of our design team over the past 12 months. We hope your will continue to stop by her blog and see her gorgeous creations. Thank you Audrey for sharing our journey – we are grateful for you!

We are very pleased to announce a new member to our design team. Join us as we welcome Jodi Wilton. Jodi's design style is happy and whimsical and we are looking forward to sharing this new year of growth with her and seeing how her creative muse is tickled by our challenges.

We mentioned RAKs or giveaways at each designer’s blog this month,since we’re celebrating our first year. Please read each designer’s instructions regarding the giveaway as they will vary. We will post a final list of winners on April 24th on the Inspiration Elevator blog, so be sure to pop back, and if you create something based on this month’s challenge, please link it up on the blog!

Stop by and see what the designers on this adventure have created:

So, I have been stalking Sue Sykes's blog, click here to see my favorite post full of inspiration!  Love her style and everything she was hard to pick something to lift. I was just too overwhelmed with the head was just reeling with ideas and I noticed several things about her style....she uses lots of color, layers and lots of feminine touches...super inspiring. While scoping out her blog, I fell in love, head over heels with this sketch she created.
 I decided to put all the elements of Sue's style into my version of her gorgeous sketch.  Lots of color and lots of pretty things...still making it my own by using my favorite white favorite twine and other little bits!

 Now on to my giveaway!  I would love to have you follow my blog and stop by  the new IE just leave a comment on my blog and on the new  IE blog...just say "Hi", that's all it takes... and you could win a 12x12 Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper pack, Maya Road 3x3 Coaster Canvas Album, Maya Road Love Word Album, and a Maya Road Bee Hive Album!  Plus all the IE designers have RAK's too!  Leave em some love!  You have until April 22nd to leave a comment! I will announce my winner here and all the winner will be posted on the IE blog on April 24!
Thanks for stopping by!
