Let's Take a Little Trip!

Hello all and welcome to a fun-filled creative escape here on the Power Poppy Blog! It's one that will take us to Portofino, Italy for a little splash of color inspiration! This month with our Pop Goes the World Challenge, we travel to this upscale resort area along the Italian Riviera which is famous for its picturesque harbor. It's also a hot spot with celebrities. And, after looking at this photo -- you can see why! Aren't those colors delish? If you can't journey to Italy to see this beauty in person, I've been told there's a full-scale replica of this area of town at Universal Orlando Resort! So today, we "travel" to this coastal community to be inspired!

THE CHALLENGE:

Look at this photo and and use at least three out of the four colors we've highlighted. Add shades of turquoise or buttery yellow or rusty red or a little bit of grassy green to your creation! Simply use a Power Poppy stamp set, these colors, and link up your creation to be in the running!

THE OFFICIAL RULES:

· Using the Linky at the bottom of this post, link up to the exact post featuring your card
· Use one of Power Poppy's images -- any one will do!
· Be sure to list the Power Poppy Challenge in your post or gallery write up
· If you upload to Splitcoaststampers, be sure to use the keyword PPWORLD2 
· Entries will be accepted up until August 31st at 5PM EST.
· Winners will be announced 9/5/14 & the person chosen wins a Power Poppy stamp set of their choice!

Some of the Bloom Brigade took these fabulous shades and let their creativity flow! So, grab your passport to creativity and stop by to see....

BEFORE WE GO.......

We have some catching up to do on our Power Peeps of the Week. We skipped last week because we were so darned excited for our new release! We had so many wonderful entries (see them HERE.) ALL of them were just beautiful, each and every one of them.

Elizabeth Zaffarano sure had the "ticket" with this amazing creation below! Oh my! She used the peonies from the Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips set as well as the little “Love” sentiment stamp from the Springtime Love set. I love, love, love that bold pop of color! You can see more photos and the inspiration behind Elizabeth's winning creation HERE!

Our second Peep of the Week is this beauty of a creation below! Check out Traci Major's shabby tag with gilded accents tucked neatly in its own little envelope! Creative and posh at the same time! Traci used not only the Springtime Love set but Good Thinking: Renewal for the “Breathe in” sentiment. Nicely done we say!

We'll be adding these beauties to our Power Poppy Peeps of the Week Board over on Pinterest! 

So, this week join us in our Pop Goes the World Challenge and link up your creation below! Winners for our Peep of the Week will be chosen from this challenge. So, you get double benefits! You get a chance to win a stamp set of choice AND your creation might just be honored in our Power Poppy Peep of the Week post next Friday! Can you really handle all this FUN?? ;-)

So get those fingers inky and we'll see you back here soon!
