TCB Tuesday...introducing "For Your Inspiration"

Lots of biz to take care of this week here on the blog...but the main item today is this introduction:

I'm was so excited when my 'Twisted Sister' Stephanie announced she was starting a new challenge blog. Based on inspiration photos and open to all kinds of projects, I was honored when she invited me to be a part of her new creative team. So, I'd like to officially introduce:

For Your Inspiration! (feel free to grab the blinkie!)
Also on the design team are a group of amazing papercrafters:

Here's how it will work: beginning this Thursday, March 3 and continuing every 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, Steph will post a challenge, in the form of a photograph. Let the photo inspire you and submit your project...any kind of project: cards, layouts, minis, anything!!  The "Lovely Lotus" badge will be awarded to the favorite project from each challenge. (Did you know the lotus is a symbol of creativity? Our team member Wanda alerted us to that cool fact! Hence, the lotus badge :) Each Lovely Lotus winner will have the opportunity to be a guest designer for a future challenge.

I hope you'll join us Thursday for the inaugural challenge...we are going to have a great time!

This is going to be a week of giveaways! I just passed my 200th post (but I'll be saving that giveaway for next week sometime). Tomorrow I'll have another Ella eBook giveaway and at the end of the week, a fun Studio blog hop (with you guessed it, prizes!) And no way I can forget Thursday's first challenge at FYI.
