Happy Friday JAI friends and welcome to our challenge for the first Friday in November.

Nikki has given us this Inspiration Photo of a beautiful bouquet of flowers to use in our crafting projects this week. Flowers are so useful for many things - to celebrate, be thankful or to share in sorrow. 

You can take whatever appeals to you from this image - the floral bouquet, the textures and / or the colours to be the main focus for your challenge project. The design team had a lot of fun with this and we hope that you do too!
