Pinspired Challenges #1: Let's kick this off!

Good morning!  Today is our first challenge over at Pinspired Challenges, and boy am I excited!  We have an awesome year lined up with FABULOUS sponsors, and WONDERFUL inspiration photos.  Let's get to it, shall we?

 My mission was to create a project based off of the above picture, and here's what I came up with:

It's a cupcake box I cut out using my Silhouette Cameo, and I filled it with a baby legging "cupcake" to give as a baby shower gift. I was totally inspired by the vivid colors in the inspiration cake, and I knew right away that I wanted to use this paper from Echo Park's Little Girl collection.  Perfect!

Inside the box, I rolled up a pair of baby leggings and tied them with a bow, to make a little leggings "cupcake" and then printed and colored a free digi stamp from The Alley Way Stamps.

And, voila!  A cute, handmade baby shower gift!

Now, grab your paper, scissors, and glue, and show me what you can make based on this inspiration photo!  The amazing folks at The Alley Way Stamps are our lovely sponsors for this challenge, and they are offering our Pin Perfect winner a free stamp set of their choice.  How awesome is that?!  Here's a refresher on our challenge details...I can't wait to see what you create!
