    Hi Everyone! I get to host this months Inspiration challenge, and I'm super excited! Hosting challenges get me scrapping, leaving love and seeing what people create with my idea! I love it!

    This month's Inspiration Challenge was inspired by the beginning of a new season. I want you to be inspired by colors, changing colors, and the blending of colors. On your layout, I would like to see a blending of two or more colors on your background paper. You could use a piece of paper, that already blends colors, or a gradient of two papers blended together, or even a mix of papers, patterns, and a photo that have different coloring. There are so many possibilities!

    I even used the gorgeous TLP DSD Blog Hop goodies. You can check that out HERE. There is SO much blended into that background... 2 Blue Patterns, 1 orange Pattern, White Wood paper, Paint, and more paint! I love the contrast!

    Here are some examples of how you can blend color! There really are so many different ways you can incorporate this onto your layout! I am thrilled to see what you create and what colors you will be mixing!

    Mixing papers and patterns, focusing on white and yellow:

    Gradient Blends, a patterned blue/white with yellow:

    A three way Gradient Blend with a patterned blue, white textured and a pink solid paper:

    A paper with a color blend, a blue to a silvery purple lighter blue (Not sure what to call that color!! :giggle):

    A mix of colored papers blended with the photo, darks blues with oranges and pinks:

    As always, please remember the monthly challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the 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 (new prize starting with the July challenges)! 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).

    The angry black clouds and high winds we encountered on a recent vacation caused me to grab the camera and take some shots through the windshield. The winds whipped the sandy soil until there was a tan dust over everything.

    I used a brick paper and a gray one over to mimic the gray concrete stones used on the house:
