May Inspiration Elevator Reveal


You may recall that the purpose of this challenge group is to take our scrapbooking to the next level, to stretch our creative process and to grow as artists by embracing challenges that make us think, work and grow.  Check out our new Inspiration Elevator Blog, here.

This month, our challenge comes from the talented Laura Whitaker. Laura's challenge, in her own words, is as follows:

"As we welcome spring, scrap something to do with a new beginning, it could be an opportunity, a relationship, or even the world's reawakening after it's long winter's nap. Don't forget to journal and describe why you have chosen your topic."

 We would also like to welcome our May Guest Designer, Denise Morrison. Her arsty, eclectic style inspires her followers to see how "Life is Yummy" at her blog!

 I hope you will stop by and see what our designers on this adventure have created:

Such a fun and inspiring challenge from Laura!  I knew exactly what I wanted to scrap when I read this challenge and I had seen a layout that I had fallen in love with by the amazing Maggie Holmes...I just had to lift it! Here is the link to her gorgeous layout!

And here is my layout...our new beginning!
It's been a very long journey the past 20 months, after leaving the gorgeous Black Hills to move to the prairie of Aberdeen.  Our new home represents so much love and hard work...it is our dream home..and I love it!
Thanks for joining us today at IE!
