Week 294: START

Time to start a new week of clean & simple inspiration with a fresh cue word!  It's also a new month and a new season for many!

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 see what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
