Challenges are the answer to a question

I was really happy to be working on the latest Festive Friday challenge because I needed a project for a Fall Video Hop that a friend was putting together. I took a look at the Inspo List and though the video hop was to be fall, but not Halloween projects, I was able to use the list to come up with just the perfect project! It was the perfect answer to “What am I going to make?!”

That’s the true beauty of our remodeled challenge. Though the Inspo List is based on items related to a (perhaps unusual) holiday or festivity, the resulting project doesn’t have to reflect that event at all! As a matter of fact the majority of the Design Team projects have nothing to do with Halloween or the Day of the Dead!

Check out the DT Projects!

Here’s my take:

From the Inspo List, I picked: Black, Bright Colors and Flowers.
