I Inspire Me #5

Today is the reveal day for I Inspire Me Challenge number 5!! We were inspired by Stationary this time, you can see my inspiration piece over at the blog. I had a great time coming up with this page, from drawing and cutting the leaves to all the stitching, and I couldn't wait to share it today! Lana has worked so hard for each challenge to make sure we all send our work in to designing the blog and putting it all together. THANKS Lana for doing such a great job. I hope you'll hop on over and see what some of the other designers created for this challenge.

In other news, it's been rainy most days here and we've been pretty busy. There was a break in the rain so we went and picked berries again, that was fun! And, I've been working on some other projects - like my 10 Minute Recycled fun. They all need their finishing touches - stitching! But after that I may consider sharing one or two of them!

TTFN, Have a great day everyone!
