This is the organizing thread for the Photo Inspiration Challenges for 2013. This challenge is open to any host , if you would like to host this challenge, please PM me or comment on this thread. We'll then be a bit more organized this way.

I hope this might be a fun, "regular-ish," challenge that you would like to host!

Guidelines for hosting:
*The host chooses the inspiration photo!
*Time-frame is flexible, but 2 weeks is the suggestion.
*You can decide what the requirements will be for the challenge, such as a stamping requirement.
*You can decide to offer a RAK, but in general, they aren't necessary.
*Please start a new thread in the Stamping forum for your challenge, and I will link it up here for posterity. Using the 2P's blog is also a good idea, as members can then link their projects up there as well.

#1) Photo Inspiration Challenge #1 - Window Books Flowers Host: howdyheidi
#2) Photo Inspiration Challenge #2 - Rustic Table Host: howdyheidi
#3) Photo Inspiration Challenge #3 - Crochet - 3/1 - 3/15 Host: lickeyan

I have really liked doing the photo inspiration challenges so far. I think it's a great way to look at our supplies and see what we can come up with. I wouldn't mind hosting one if these but it would probably be sometime after Winterfest before I could commit to it. Thanks for starting this Heidi, I hope it becomes a "regular" challenge here!

I'm glad Leighann, how about you let me know when you are closer to ready. I totally understand wanting to put Winterfest first!

WTG, Heidi! I'm really enjoying how we're beginning to explore the 'multiple host' idea for on-going Stamping challenges.

Gotta question... Well you knew I would!

Would it be kosher for a host to have players stamp on a photo rather than just providing a photo for stamping inspiration?

I have some ideas, but don't want to muddy the waters here.

Daniel, I may be persuaded about that, so let's hear your ideas!

I do think however, that this challenge, in it's simpler form, lends itself so well to using whatever stamps and supplies you have.

You're correct, Heidi. As is, this is a good challenge for on-going.

My 'take' would be different & definitely carries the potential of confusing the players.

Down the line I might 'test the water' with it as a separate challenge.

Thanks, pal!

Anyone else interested to be #4?

That sounds great, LeighAnn. I think you should be next. If anyone else wants to do one after LeighAnn (doesn't have to be right after), just let me know and I will add you to the list in the OP.

Ok sounds good, Heidi.

Thanks Petrivino. I'm glad you like them. Hopefully someone will want to offer one after LeighAnn's is completed. It's not too early to sign up to host!

Well I had the ink and paper out and several flower stamps, a recent yard sale find so I made another simple card. Loving this color inspiration. Thanks for the challenge!
