CKC Challenge #1 - Photo Inspiration

Here's a little photo inspiration to get your creative juices flowing:

It has been an extremely slow start to spring around here, so this photo is almost like a mirage!

What struck me most about this picture was the deep blue sky and the bright yellow flowers.  Even though the sun is not visible in this photo, it is obvious that it is a clear sunny day.  So, that led me to choose the very on-trend sunburst design for my layout.

  I immediately thought of photos (ones that were taken with film) of our Nantucket trip when our son was a baby.   Here's what I came up with:

While I long for a warm day at the beach, I'd gladly take a day in the lower 60's at this point!  Hope you can find some warmth and inspiration from our featured photo.  We'd love to see your creations over on
 Mr. Linky!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. We have a brilliantly sunny day here today - but the temperature is still way down with added wind chill!
    This happy sunny page does warm mem up though - perfect colours and embellies for such happy photos.

  2. How sweet is this? I really love that perfect viewfinder reel!!!!

  3. awww...look at baby T!
    This is a genius catch of the inspiration - that sunburst background just draws you into the images, esp the center photo that is so sweet & bright. Love the mixed fonts in your title.

  4. Aw. This is the perfect example of a beautiful, sunny layout x

  5. Love your trendy sunburst! And do I spy stitching too? Great job of summing up warm sunny days. It seems like spring is late all over the northern hemisphere this year! Here too. Your use of yellows here is so appealing. Must do that more often.

  6. What a beautiful sunny page! The sunburst is the colours.....adorable photos......perfection!!!

  7. Beautiful layout!! Love the sunburst!!

  8. Aw, what a bright and happy layout! I love the sunburst, especially that it has a viewmaster reel as the centre! Gorgeous! x
