Dear Santa

Time for another inspiration page from Pixels and Paper.

 I liked the red poinsettias and the red bulbs on the tree. I used red flowers on my page also, plus some red, white and green buttons.  I used a photo of my kids from many Christmases ago.

I used the Tic Tac Toe October 23rd challenge from Studio Challenges.
 I went right down the left side with wood, paint, and arrows.

Remember when I tried taking a selfie

This is the photo I got.  It was without my son.

I used the fall inspiration from Challenge YOURself as seen below.

I also entered this into the Creative Inspiration Wednesday Stash to use old papers.  All these papers came from a kit that I have had for over a year

Visiting Maine

When we visited colleges in Maine this past Spring with my daughter we stopped in at LL Bean since it was just a town or two away from where we were.  Here is what I created with the photos I took.

I used this sketch from Creative Inspiration.

I also used this painting by Chris Hobel as the inspiration photo for ARTastic

Use frames

It's another challenge here at Pixels and Paper.  This month there is a rather shabby chic image for you to take some inspiration from.  You may like the vintage feel of this photograph and run with using lace on your page or perhaps you are drawn to the flowers and work those onto your entry in some way.  Maybe you like the color white and add in pale pink and yellow as your accent colors. Or possibly you prefer the shapes in this image and like to use a combination of rectangles and ovals and hexagons on your page.  Whatever inspires you about our image, please share it with us.

Here is what I created.

I was drawn to the white of the inspiration photo. So I scrapped a winter picture. I added the big frame around my photo and some other small frames for accent

You have until the end of the month to join in with this challenge.  Go to Pixels and Paper for more details and to enter.
