Just Us Girls #216 - Photo Inspiration

 photo JUGS216picA.jpg

Vicki has selected this delightful inspiration picture for our challenge this week.  Love the mix of images and colours! So many wonderful inspirational options!

I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch along with some of MME's Merry Little Christmas paper, as well as my brand new PTI snowflake die which I absolutely LOVE!!  Such a fabulous snowflake shape which you can layer up or use independently. 

The rest of the  JUGS team have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out what the Design Team has created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week.  Plus if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
