Week 374: VACATION

Who could use a vacation about now?  Everyone?!  Thought so!  Let's take one...in the gallery, where nothing but inspiration is contagious!  You get two weeks!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner $25 off their next online order!  Check out these deals this month:
