{inspiration...and a winner!}

so friday is my day for picking the photo of the day.....and it's so hard to pick just one! i struggle every week. there is so much inspiration found in the tml flickr pool!
so, what i have decided to do for the friday potd is put together an inspiration collage using photos from the flickr pool. each week will have some kind of theme (colors, food, b/w, props, trees....).
this week i chose the color yellow!!

{you can click on the links below to take you to the original photo}

1. When life gives you lemons..., 2. .yellow, 3. yellow {buds}, 4. Walking through puddles is my favorite metaphor for life., 5. 108/365 , 6. springing!, 7. Untitled, 8. More lemons, 9. ...

i'm exited to see these each week! REMEMBER, if you would like to see your photo as the photo of the day or the new friday inspirations, make sure to submit your photos to the TML flickr group!

I would also buy a couple of the mini kits and the celebration kit. Then to top it all off I would have to buy some of the paper packs!!!
