Challenge #85 ~ Layout

THANX to all of you who entered our last challenge.  What a great turnout!  We asked you to share the love and you sure did!

Now we are on to another new challenge.  This time we are doing a layout.  I hope you enjoy this one.

One of our favorite sponsors is back with us again, 
A Day For Daisies.  

We love the images that Tammy Siemers Thompson creates. They are so amazing.  Have a look around at her wonderful digis, I know you will be impressed and you'll be sure to find an image you will just have to have.  Our lucky random winner will receive a 
$12 gift certificate 
to use in their on line shop.  NICE!

Before we get to the DT's cards, I have a a couple of special announcements for you!  First, give a BIG round of applause for our super DT member SUE!  
She has just past her TWO year anniversary with CC&CC.  She is a very talented gal who is always there to help, has great ideas and has become a wonderful friend.  She was published last year too.  We are SO lucky to have her with us and I hope she is here for a long time to come!
Happy Anniversary Sue!

Secondly, we have a NEW DT member!  Please give a warm welcome to Bonnie!  We are VERY happy to have her with us.  Drop by her blog and have a look around at her lovely work.  You can read her bio (and those of all of our DT) under our Design Team sub-page.  Find out about her love of crafting and get to know her a bit better.  WELCOME BONNIE!!

Finally lets see the inspiration our DT have for you.  Each of our DT got to choose their image for this challenge, and several of them said they really had a hard time choosing ~ so many beautiful ones it was hard to make up their minds!  Let's take a look and see what they have created.

 If you are really looking for a real challenge to make a card, this is it!  We would love to see your take on this fun layout.

Create & Enjoy!
