CBCC #38 - inspiration

This week's CBCC challenge is an inspiration challenge. We are to find our inspiration from people - our loved ones, celebrities, anyone!

I found inspiration from my Gramma for this challenge. She happened to be wearing a cute blouse with a blue fabric diamond shape in the center, with swirls and crocheted flowers all around it. I just loved that and it stuck in my mind, so I just had to imitate it. :-) Thanks, Gramma!!

I met the sweetest gal named Leah who makes these wonderful crocheted flowers. HERE is her shop so you can see what else she makes. I asked her to make an assortment of flowers and leaves, and these are her creations. I just LOVE these! They are so soft and gorgeous! Thanks for the beautiful work, Leah!

Look around you and see the inspiration that is right next to you. It could be your child's bib, your husband's toolbelt, the colors of your favorite football team, anything. Create something from what you see today. Need more inspiration? Check out what the other Challenge Chicks have created for you:
