Way Back When

Hello crafty peeps,

Did you have a good weekend? It was great springlike weather here, we had a bike around both days with our girl in front of me pointing and laughing all the way, it was delightful! Talking about bikes and spring, here is our new inspirational photo over @ the (P)inspirational challenge:

Would have been perfect for this weekend's photo's, but we didn't take any and just enjoyed the experience. So instead, I scrapped a very old picture (1993!) of me and my class mates in high school. Seems like a lifetime away (and by this time, it pretty much is of course)! I let myself be inspired by the lightblue window frame and the white wall, as well as the bike basket where all the flowers are in. Perhaps not the most obvious way of being inspired by a picture, but I have had this W R Memory Keepers triangles paper in my stash for quite a bit now and I despereately wanted to use it. I love it, but that light blue is not a colour I scrap with very often, so I very often passed it by regretfully when I was looking through my papers.This time I was determined to make it work and I did it! Yay for me ;)

We have two sponsors this time around; Elisabeth Bell and Fred She Said! If you would like to join, please link up directly to the challenge blogpost and let us know how you were inspired by the photo (personally, I love to read how you were inspired!).
