Good Morning, Friends,
Ready or not here I am.  I have switched from Tuesdays to Sundays at Creative Inspiration paints . I also have gently been handed the reins from Jessica of  Chick-n-scrap to be the challenge coordinator for the remainder of the year at Creative Inspiration Paints.   We will miss you Jessica. As you may or may not know, I like doing 3 D projects. I am always amazed that paper can  be something other than flat.

This week's challenge is:
Inspired By: Spring Colors

Here's some inspiration:

This is a spring time cup cake box, using Graphics 45 bird song and an file

  I have used jeweled inspirations to decorate the closure portion of the box.
Also, if you look closely you will see glitter. I used
resplendence angel dust and gold, deliquesce gold sparkle, pink, silver, and gold.

Now onto the butterfly wrapped gift box

I have also used the clear  30 ss jeweled inspiration on the flower center and 

on the tops of each butterfly

The cut file for the butterfly wrapped gift box is also and file. The papers I used for this are DCWV
I am also giving you

a sneak peek of a new product that we will be carrying at Creative inspiration  paints. I haven't told you what it is, maybe you can guess, but if not continue to watch the designers throughout the week some of us will  be giving you a peek of the product until it is announced.

I hope you have enjoyed my project and will play along with this week's challenge!!
Remember you do not need to use CI Paints on your projects but if you have them we would LOVE to see how you used them!!
As always thanks for stopping by and
have a great week!
