Week 278: STORMY

Those of us that are entering the cold winter months are anxiously awaiting that first snow storm.  The one that seems magical and fresh.  Not all life's storms seem so enjoyable, but maybe this week's gallery will hold just the encouragement we need.  How do you interpret this word?

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)
Let's take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
