Good Morning,
It's Sandy here, posting from a grey and dull UK. So basically we're back to normality; I hope you all enjoyed the sun while it lasted. :-) As you might have noticed, here at the LLC Inspiration Blog we tend to work with different themes every week. Last week for example we, in honour of the opening of the Olympic games we did "Bling it On Week". By the way; the Special Olympic Offer; 20% off all blingy products at the Live & Love Crafts Store ends tomorrow at midnight.

Previously we've done both a Riddersholm Design week and a Pion Design week. This week however we don't have a special theme; I've given the DT "free hands" to create whatever they like and use whatever materials they like. I'm very excited to see what they're all coming up with!

When we have the freedom of choice, many of us tend to reach for our favourites. Yesterday Becky used Maja Design papers for her elegant monchrome card. Also Tina went with her favourite papers for this romantic vintage card;

Tina used the beautiful "Forget Me Not" from Pion Design's From My Heart II 12 x12 collection.
Tina also used:
Leaf & Swirl - Magnolia DooHickey
Cheese Cloth
Pearl String, Reprint
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad: Vintage Photo, Ranger
Mini Round Brads, Reprint

Many thanks for looking.
Please remember to stop by tomorrow, when our August challenge kicks off; we will then announce who the lucky winner of the £25 Store Voucher is and we'll have plenty more beautiful vintage inspiration for you!

Hugz, Sandy & Tina
