Wish You Were Here


It's time for a new challenge at Time Out. This time we have a photo challenge with a subject that is near and dear to my heart. You can take so many things for inspiration from this photo from the lighthouse, to colors, to ocean to rocks... I am a lighthouse, lover, so I chose a lighthouse theme. I have several stamps and dies that would work for this in my stash. I chose this one from Cottage Cuts to create my scene. I love the embossing folder I used in the background on heavy duty vellum. I am so happy with the way it turned out.

We are sponsored by Lawn Fawn with a generous $25.00 store credit for our winner. Our winner also gets an invitation to Guest Design with us for a future challenge.

Joyce Mehrberg, former Time Out Design Team Member and winner of Time Out Challenge #262, has joined us as Guest Designer for this challenge. Check out the details on the Time Out Challenge Blog where you can also see what the rest of the Design Team has created for your inspiration. Come play with us!
