Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #1

Good morning and welcome! Thank you to everyone who joined in the Whimsical Wednesday blog hop. It was so much fun reading all of your sweet comments about the design team and the new blog. I will announce the winners of the blog hop at the end of the post.

This is an exciting week because it is our first challenge here on the new blog, and instead of just having one or two projects for inspiration you have seven. Cindy from the card team will now also be designing for the scrapbooking team:). This week it's all about scrapbooking. The challenge is to create a Spring or Easter LO and incorporate a bug or critter onto the page. Here are the sneak peeks:

Don't these sneak peaks look adorable? I was so wowed by all of them that every time I would get an e-mail with one attached, I wanted to respond back saying I COULD not wait and I needed to see the completed pages. I controlled myself though! I have been so excited to see them and I am sure they have your interest too, so lets head to the blogs and see what the scrapbooking team has come up with. Just click on the Designers name above their photos to go directly to the blogs.

Now onto the winners of the blog hop:
