Time For Another Challenge???

Before I get to the real reason for my post, I have to thank all the good sports that participated in Reveal Night and the Crazy Avatars...did we or did we not have a ton of laughs?

Moving on to the real reason I'm here today...I love this time of year, it really just brings about feelings of fresh creativity, doesn't it? Everything seems so brand new after a long grey winter. Sometimes, though, we all need a little jumpstart--so I thought I'd share one of my favorite sources of inspiration with you, HOW Magazine. You may be aware that it's a magazine for graphic design professionals...but the inspiration it gives me on a regular basis is well worth the cost and all the "technical design speak" that I don't know too much about.
From my latest issue I'm giving you an ad challenge, which when I saw it made me laugh a little because it's almost like a sketch challenge, too!! I hope you will take some form of inspiration and create a page, post it in the gallery for your chance at a RAK. On Sunday, May 4th, I'm going to pull a name out of a hat from everyone who posted a page based on this inspiration. I don't care whether you base your design on the colors, the design, the theme. I don't care whether you do one page or two, draw inspiration from one side or the other...I just want you to feel inspired and scrap a page you're happy with!
