Etsy Inspired Challenge #110 - Capturing Creativity (Hey that's me!) :)

I am super excited about this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge because I am the featured Etsy Shop and Sponsor!!! I love the Etsy Inspired Challenge, am so thankful to Ashley for choosing me to be a part of her team (over a year and a half ago), and it actually is partially what inspired me to start my own Etsy shop! So, I can't wait to see which items of mine inspire you this week! You can check out my shop HERE.

I was inspired by my Peace on Earth card to get out my chipboard shapes and Doodlebug Designs chunky glitter (love this stuff!) to create this fun card.

a is for apple

I used the current sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You to create this card, along with some Echo Park Summertime paper, PTI cardstock and buttons, and American Crafts foil thicker. I think it will be perfect for giving to my son's preschool teacher.

So....want to know what you can win from my shop if you play along?! One person will win a creativity kit filled with fun supplies for creating a mini album, scrapbooking, or card making. And another person will win an Accordian book and stamp set.

All you have to do to play along is:
- Visit my shop!
- Find an item that inspires you and create your own project
- Link your project up to the Etsy Inspired Blog by Friday the 22nd at noon

Be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team to see what inspiring projects they have come up with! Some of them have even used goodies from my shop!
Have a wonderful weekend! We will be enjoying some soccer, a birthday party, and probably a trip to the pumpkin patch too...fun times!
