2017 Year In Review Inspiration Challenge

by Lydia Evans

Can you believe that is December already? It seems like this year has just flown by. We have had so many amazing challenges here on the blog in the past year that we thought it would be a great idea to take a look back at all of them and be inspired again.

Inspiration Challenge 2017 12So we are excited to host A Year In Review Inspiration Challenge this month. We want you to take inspiration from one of the past Inspiration Challenge photos and be inspired, maybe you take the colors, theme or something else from the photo, however you are inspired is fine by us.

New projects please , so no back-linking, we would really like to see new, fresh designs using the inspiration.
