Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to a new "I spy with my little eye" challenge! I'm so happy to say the 1st challenge was off to a great start and it was so nice to see so many of you joining in this new monthly challenge! Be sure to scroll down to see if you are one of the 2 Top Picks with an invitation to join in as a guest designer in the next challenge.
Before I get to the new theme there is an announcement to make. The lovely Pauline is joining me here as a full time designer. I am sure you will love her beautiful and creative projects! Welcome on board, Pauline! So nice to have you joining me here!
Challenge No. 2
I spy with my little eye............
April Showers or May Flowers
This is not an optional theme so please be sure we can "spy" the theme on your creations. You may share anything crafty as long as it represents the theme in some way. The linky tool is at the end of this post.
Below are the projects from our mini- design team. Maybe we can inspire you a bit today :)
