Pinspired Challenge #1

Welcome to our very first Pinspired Challenge!  
In case you haven't heard, we are a brand new challenge site and all of our challenges are based on "pins" that were found on Pinterest.  This challenge site has been in the works for several months now and we are so excited to finally present our first challenge.   We hope you will be inspired to get crafty and play along with us!  So without further ado, here is our first challenge:
You can use this photo as inspiration any way you want.  Are you inspired by the colors, the style, or the content?  Anything goes!  You can also make any type of craft you want-a card, a layout, or an altered item.  Please just make sure it is a new creation!
Now for the best part...We have a sponsor lined up for each challenge that has agreed to award a prize to the winner of the challenge.  
Our sponsor this month is The Alley Way Stamps!!
The winner of this challenge will receive one stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps!
Here is a word from our sponsor:
The Alley Way Stamps:
We're a small company from Utah that specializes in clear photopolymer stamps that are made right here in the USA! These stamps are fun, whimsical, and sometimes a little quirky. We try to keep them trendy. The sentiments will always put a smile on your face. We began in January 2012 with the release of four stamp sets and are now up to 38 sets and growing. We at The Alley Way bring you one of a kind stamps. All of our stamps are hand created with you in mind; even our sentiments are made to go perfectly with each set. One of our favorite things to do is pick out PUNNY sentiments and the perfect stamp name. We hope our designs here at The Alley Way will inspire a little creativity in everyone. From the oldest to the youngest, we hope it brings out the fun in crafting. We can't wait to see The Alley Way Stamps in your next project!
