Week 284: LATE

It's time for a brand new cue word again and you don't want to be late submitting your entry this week!

**PLEASE NOTE:  We have made a slight change to the challenge end time, so be sure to keep that in mind when linking up your cards this week!  Don't be late!

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!)
Let's take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
