It's time for another (P)inspire Me Monday!

Hi there, friends with ISSUES!  Leah here, bringing you a brand new, fabulously inspiring little challenge to say hello to the middle of the month.  Can you believe it's almost the END of 2015?  Where on earth did it go?  Can you look back at all of the projects you've made this year and say it's been productive and filled with happy memories?  We hope so, and we thank you for sharing everything you have so far!

So we're back to (P)inspire you again, and I've got a brand new mood board to get those creative juices a-flowin'...  Are you ready for it?  Can you even handle the excitement?  Well just wait till you feast your eyes on what our amazing Creative Team did to spruce up my post for you today...

First of all, here's your (P)inspiration!

ANNNNNNNND, get a load of these beauties!

Lisa presents one of her amazing cards, gathering up all kinds of gorgeous bits from the new Fancy Pants "Wish Season" line...  I love how she masters so many embellies in one little space!  She loved the pop of teal in the collage and let that be her springboard...

Corri brings one of her brilliant cards to the party, too, with a GORGEOUS pop of green on that classic red and white backdrop...  Totally eye-catching and swoon-worthy!  Anyone for some Bella Blvd bows?  (They're kind of the perfect accent, right?!)

I've got a page for you today that echoes the bookshelf/phone booth images in the mood board, and filled with lots of black and white patterned goodness...  I opted for some bits of Maggie Holmes' Shine and lots of Fancy Pants Happy Place in here...  and LOOK!  Another Bella Blvd bow!

Danielle dug into her new Fancy Pants Happy Place stash, too, and created this gorgeous page - I'm loving the layered frame and how she made the paper do a lot of the talking!  And hey, we've both got beachy scenes!

Cassie's got a page (I totally knew she'd scrap one of these photos!) that's pretty perfect for the theme and features some of the new Bella Blvd Valentina line.  SWOON.  Check out that phone booth library!  Have you noticed how she uses itty bits of washi on her pages?  What a fun way to add a pop of color while making the accents POP!

And Mary-Ann shares a super fun holiday page of her dude looking VERY intent pouring his milk (is he sharing with Santa?)...  The gorgeous Under The Tree collection from October Afternoon makes an appearance here and captures this moment perfectly!  Loving the vintagey elements and how the title frames the circle for interest!

And there you have it!

Go ahead, be (P)inspired!  Show us what you create based on this mood board, and play along in our Facebook Community - the December challenges are underway and you're hereby invited to the party!  Your project must be newly created for this challenge, and by entering, you'll be eligible to win one of the December gift certificates to the Paper Issues shop.  Have you SEEN all the new goodies in there?  They just keep coming, and coming, and coming...  

And you'll want to save some money, too, to make that gift certificate S-T-R-E-T-C-H just a little further!
