Inspired By #20

It is time for another Inspired By challenge.  I have to say, I am loving doing this challenge blog, it is really getting me out of my box and creating things that I may not otherwise have done.  I hope it is doing the same for you!

With Earth day soon upon us I chose this photo as inspiration.



Maps are ever so popular right now so I can see this inspiration being used for some map projects, or you can use circles, the earth, the colors... 

Once again I dug into my My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart collection.  Can you tell I LOVE this collection!  I was inspired by the colors but also thought that the title on the chipboard was perfect as well.  "Where ever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine."  My daughter has the whole world ahead of her and I hope that whatever she does, she does it by being herself.  I used my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut out the pennants and the butterfly tag.  I love this cartridge!  This is also for the My Mind's Eye Challenge - hexagons, and the Simply Create Too challenge - Earth Day


I used this sketch from Sketchabilities:

Now I can't wait to see what you create!

ETA:  My layout was in the Top 3 at 2Peas!
