March Cloud9 Blog Hop

Hello and happy Saturday! Welcome to the March Cloud9 Blog Hop!

This month, we are saying goodbye to dear Christina MacLaren. We will miss you, Christina! There is some good news, though.. the amazingly talented Erin Taylor and Maureen Merritt will be joining us!

Here is this month's inspiration photo, from the Erin Ever After Blog:

A beautiful, beautiful picture. I was completely stumped, though!

I pulled this set, pulled that set, and just couldn't quite decide what I wanted to do. Finally, I stepped back from the computer and looked at the photo from across the room. A handful of colors on the wall behind the vase jumped out at me, so I pulled those inks and a brush and this happened.

You know what, it is different but I liked it!

The flower is from Hope Seed Co. and the sentiment is from Quite Like You.

I am so glad that you've stopped by to see me today, I hope you'll play along with this month's Cloud9 Blog Hop with the chance to win a fabulous Wplus9 prize as well as join the Inspiration Team as next month's Guest Designer!
