Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Smooch


It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!


We have a new sponsor, Paper Smooches, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Smooch!  A randomly selected participant in the Smooch challenge will be awarded a $25 gift certificate to the Paper Smooches store, while the LEAD of the challenge will be invited as a guest designer for a future challenge!


 

Kim at Paper Smooches generously donated a stamp set to each of the Curtain Call designers, and I chose the adorable Just A Note. I've always been a geek for writing things, and who doesn't love a cute typewriter image, so this set is perfect for me! I must have had an inkling of how I would make it work with the inspiration photo when I chose it, but when it came time to craft, I admit I was a little stumped! So, while it may not be an obvious interpretation, I did go with the pinks from the inspiration photo and hearts for a loose tie-in to the lips/kissing/love theme. We'll call it somewhere in the vicinity of the ballpark ;)

I also used the super fun Paper Smooches SPARKS sketch (turned upside down):



Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!
