May inspired by...

Earlier this month we mentioned that we will be holding 2 challenges every month and I know many of you were curious as to what our second challenge might be. Well here it is... we wanted our second challenge to be a bit different from the many other challenges that you can find around. We have called it the " Inspired by..." challenge. For this challenge we will post things that can inspire you in many ways, could be an image, a song, a video clip... whatever we think might be inspirational.  You can take what you want from it and get creative! Here is your inspiration for May.... 
Our guest designer Josie Teh was inspired by it in many ways. Here is what she created with her inspiration....
Josie:  "I did a layout using pictures from my travel adventures around the world. I was inspired by the colours in the image so I used grey & bright colours like red, yellow & blue in both my photos & embellishments. I used multiple photos on my layout as it reminds me of the hanging gondolas on the ferris wheel. Heidi Swapp Magic Chipboard alphas were the perfect addition to represent the lights on the ferris wheel and I inked these with gold ink. I also love the chipboard stickers from Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine Collection."  
I love all the different ways Josie reflected the inspiration piece in her layout! Her photos of her travels are truly amazing and fit so perfectly with the quote.
After some feedback from our fans regarding our last challenge we decided to run this challenge a bit differently...  the winner of the prize will be randomly drawn but we will also vote on our top 3 favourite projects to be featured on the blog as well. So show us how you were inspired by....
Link your layout here by May 30th and you could win a Heidi Swapp prize pack!
Here is how to play along: 
- You can submit ANY kind of project that you were inspired to create such as layouts, cards, project life fillers

- Our challenge will run until May 30th at 11:55pm Hong Kong time.
