June (P)inspire Me Mood Board

Are you over winter and the rainy spring?
How about a nice day at the beach, reading a book and sunbathing?
Or curled on the couch on a rainy day?
Maybe just relaxing by the pool?
I think we are all ready for some warmer weather.  Wait until you see how eager the design team was with this  months (P)inspiration Board Challenge.  

First, let me share the new (P)inspire Me board.  

Here is my take on the board.  I used Carta Bella's Beach Day collection for a pool picture!  

Now let's take a look at the rest of the team.  

Rachel proves that you don't need to be inspired by just the photos, you can be inspired by the colors and the reflection of the sun.  I love all this  fussy cutting.  

Look at this adorable photo of Chelsea!  I love the clump to the top right.  Orange loved the paper and went on a hunt to find it in her studio once she saw this fun layout.  

Only Lisa would notice the stairs and completely score with this absolutely perfect card.  I love her clean crisp designs.  

Hold on to your seats, Jen Chesnick played along and it is darling.  Take a close look at the photo.  I want to be her sibling!

Rainy days don't get Mary Ann down.  Take a look at the soft colors and raindrops cascading down the page.  Well done!

Pop goes the yellow with Cassie's layout.  Maybe the touches of black make it really pop.  Or is it that adorable face four ways??

Seriously, seriously!  Doesn't this layout by Dannielle want to make you head to the beach?  I love it and the itty bitty crab!  

Ann.  Sigh.  This is just classy, elegant and simply beautiful.  

All the above layouts make us want to go to the beach and play with our kids.  Michelle's layout makes me want to go by myself!  She chose the theme not the colors for her inspiration and it works beautifully.  

Inspired by the SUN, Janet created this bright colored layout.  I love just love the photo!  

Don't be afraid to use those patterned papers and lots of them!  Kelly framed the photo and cards in black which makes the entire layout fun and exciting.  Brilliant idea.
