Good Morning everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying your June so far!

Today I would like to share a layout I made for the new Challenge YOUrself challenge!!

This month's challenge is about being inspired by art:

I love this cool work of art - it's by an artist by the name of Tang Yau Hoong and it's called "Journey to the City of no Horizon."  You can check out more about him here!

My take:

I used a photo of John and I standing in Central Park when we celebrated our anniversary last year!  You have to look closely to see us, but we are there!!!  As you can see by the bare trees and our coats, it's always cold in NYC in early March.   I was inspired by the city buildings, the clouds, and the body of water in the challenge work of art.

Here is a close up so you can see John and me a little better:

And a different view:

I truly enjoyed making this page.

I started by using my new Pinkfresh paper as my background:

 . . . and fussy cut my buildings and taxis from this paper:

 . . . and my clouds and frame around my photo are from this American Crafts set of thickers:

The little hearts and happy title were from this set of puffy stickers:

Easy Peasy!!!  I completed this layout in no time at all!

I hope you take a minute to check out Challenge YOUrself!  It would be GREAT if you participated in this month's challenge, too.  You have a random chance to win this amazing prize:

It's a 130 piece project life kit!!
