Just Add Ink # 278 - Inspiration Challenge

Hi - Happy September everyone and Happy Spring!   We have a perfect Spring Challenge for you this week.
Although - I must say, where I live, it's not felt much like spring yet.....tooo cold!  One night this week was the coldest September night on record for 18 years.    Arrrhhh - scratch that - today was a BEAUTIFUL warm day!!
 I have noticed my Roses and a few other plants around the garden starting to bloom and break out little green leaves everywhere - so spring is definitely here or not far away.

To encourage you into spring we have a wonderful Inspiration Challenge for you.

JAI #278


Here is what the Design Team have come up with this week to provide you with inspiration...
