Shine - Etsy Inspired Challenge #93

School is almost out, the sun is shining...summer must finally be here! And in honor of summer's arrival, I have a nice sunshiny layout to share with you all today!

Saturday = Etsy Inspired Challenge day here on my blog. This week's featured Etsy shop is White Birch Designs, which is filled with beautiful wire and beaded jewelry. Here is what I was inspired to create.

I was inspired by the beautiful turquoise color on this necklace with the bits of bright yellow/orange...such a stunning combination. Yesterday as I began working on my project, I first thought that I would create a card but then I got this sunshine/rays idea and knew I had to get to work on a layout. However, I am a bit of a slow scrapbooker...usually I take a few days to figure out my design, picture placement, and journaling so this layout isn't quite complete. But I do love the colors and feel of the layout so far and I absolutely adore that picture of my little guy. I took that photo in our backyard on Mother's Day. Can you tell that my photography skills are improving? :)

Okay, now for the details of the challenge! Simply visit White Birch Designs to find a piece that inspires you, create your own project, and link it up to the Etsy Inspired Blog by Friday at noon. You could win a wonderful prize from White Birch Designs or a gift voucher plus free shipping from our sponsor this week, One Stop Card Crafts.
