Challenge #28 Think Spring

Hello everyone! It's Tammy and I'm very excited to be bringing you this week's challenge! Thank you to everyone who participated in last week's challenge! It was so great to view your fantastic creations and congratulations to all the winners.

I'm sure that, like me, you are slowly getting tired of winter and cannot wait for spring to arrive! Here in Calgary Alberta, it seems like winter lasts for half the year and it's always so cold! So I'm counting the days, when the snow starts melting and I can pack away the mitts and boots...

So for this week's challenge, we want you to THINK SPRING! Pull out those pretty spring colors and celebrate the sunshine and warmer weather...
This week we have a new sponsor...AiFactory Digital Graphics

I will be sharing more about AiFactory during our sponsor spotlight on Thursday! AiF is donating 3 digital images to this week's winner!
To get you into spring fever, here are some great inspiration pieces from the DT this week
