    Well, it's June. I can hardly believe it. This year seems to be simultaneously flying by and dragging on.

    I have struggled with finding inspiration to create this month. Between the shock of the global pandemic and the heartbreak of racism that continues to rear it's ugly head in my own country, things feel heavy, solemn, and just sad at the moment. I hope this month brings better and brighter days for us all.

    Just a day before the challenge was due I was flipping through the latest issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine and low and behold, mosaic is back. (Maybe it never left??). There was a lengthy article with project ideas and a how to on creating your own mosaics. Finally, inspiration!

    Your challenge this month is to create a page inspired by mosaic. A mosaic is a pattern made of small bits of glass, tile, paper, etc. Here are a few ideas from Pinterest to get the juices flowing.

    Here is my page inspired by mosaic:

    Can't wait to see your pages inspired by mosaic.

    Gentle Reminder: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the June Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    @ashleywb - me too! Thought like as Cheryl said that we were beginning to see the light at the end of the dark tunnel when the tragedy and riots started.:shakehead Add to this the fact that we don't have any new family pics the last 10 months- what's the point? I don't want to just "do pages".:whistle I really miss our family- our grands. But I can't do anything about it. So yeah, it's been hard to find inspiration. I do think I know what this challenge will produce though. :-)

    I know, I am low on photos as well. All the things I would have taken photos of have been cancelled. Guess I need to focus on the little everyday things. Glad you have an idea for the challenge though, I look forward to seeing your page!

    I used two of SWL templates and lots of different papers to create mosaic-like heart. This was fun to do!
