Thanks for the (P)inspiration, Friends!

GOOOOOOOOOOD morning, friends with Issues!  Happy Monday!

Leah l'Orange checking in from Canada today (getting stuff done!), and very excited to share these fab projects shared for my (P)inspire Me Monday challenge!  There's still plenty of time to get in on the action (just click HERE and post your creations in the comments!) so you'll be eligible to win one of the two Paper Issues gift certificates up for grabs!

Here's your two-week reminder...  The mood board:

 And you have shared some seriously GORGEOUS pages, drawing inspiration from the board.
When I say seriously, I mean it.  I am this serious:

So let's take a look, shall we? 

There's THIS piece of gorgeousness from Chelsea Miller.  The whole page just embraces and incorporates the dreamy feel of the moodboard.  I love the hexies, the wispy colors, the fonts (!!) and the use of multiple Doodlebug doilies!  The photo she used is kind of epically (it's a word!) perfect, no?

Katie Wade shared this super soft and sweet card, clearly inspired by the macarons, the bubbles,
and the pinks.  The way she used the cut file to frame her center shape is so much fun!
Plus bokeh, vellum and twine?  YES!

Julie Evers' page is PERFECT in her December daily, and really plays on the bubbles in the moodboard.
The bokeh, that little strip of stars and splats of color?  And the subtle "joy" at the bottom of the page?
This just SINGS of a truly merry Christmas!

Allison Jensen's baby page - OH MY GOODNESS.  Just look at that little face! This page uses all those feminine Crate Paper bits and bobs so perfectly, with pops of gold, a subtle watercolor frame for the photo, and the perfect balance of negative space, letting the photo of that gorgeous girl leap right off the page!

 And Celeste Brodnik shared this striking page about her kitty.  Of course the feline element is present, but does anyone else see this page and immediately think of houndstooth-wrapped packages tied up with red ribbon, 'a la Cassie Box?  Or is it just me?  Either way, what a wonderful page and a BEAUTIFUL cat!

Well THANK YOU all so much for playing along with this little challenge!
I can't wait to see the other projects that are shared - you continue to inspire and dazzle!  

And there's a whole album filled with challenges each month in the Paper Issues *Friends & Fans* group on Facebook!  Join us HERE, and the monthly albums can be found HERE

And that kicks off our week!
Happy Monday!
