September Cloud9 Blog Hop

Hi there,

How is your weekend going? The temperatures here have dropped a few degrees, and it is feeling so wonderfully fallish. I am here today to bring you my bit of inspiration for this month's Cloud9 Blog Hop. I have to say, I have had some other things going on recently that have been sapping my creative energy. But when I saw the picture that Suzanne chose for this month's challenge, I was excited to get crafting.

This month we are also welcoming Jill Norwood as our Guest Inspiration Team Member. We'd love to have you join us next month, so be sure to play along!

Here is this month's fabulous inspiration photo.

Beautiful - I'd love to be there. Here is the card that I made.

The hanging bird cages in the picture reminded me of the dress form from C'est La Vie. I started with that focal point and added the elements around it.

It was a good crafting session - I hope you are as inspired by the picture as I was and I hope you'll join us by linking up your project over on the Cloud9 Blog. In addition to the opportunity to join us as a Guest Member of the Inspiration Team, you could also win some Wplus9 loot!

Hope your Sunday is fantastic!
