Inspired by Spring

You may have just stumbled upon me, be a regular reader or be on the CKCB April Blog Hop.
If you have missed the start of the hop please click HERE so you don't miss out!
So hopefully you will have hopped from
blog post and I hope I can provide you with some further inspiration.

The Counterfeit Kit Challenge this month was to be inspired by this beautiful picture of Spring.

At the time of the CKCB post, we weren't having much of a Spring  but I can happily report that the UK weather is improving.
Inspired by the road and the colours, here's the story and the layout that emerged from it.
We were on a jet boat trip headed up river on a scorching hot day. 
The river was very windy and the pilot would anchor on his brakes to create a huge splash over the boat to cool us down. 360 degree spins in close proximity to rocks were also a trick of his.
On the way back down, the pilot slowed to avoid splashing a family at the riverside.
Great cheers rang out as it became apparent that "Granny" was standing on the boat ramp, knickers down, peeing into the river!!!

So, can you see where my inspiration came from?

Leave me a comment and let me know before hopping over to Rebecca's blog for more.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time...

  1. Yes I can definitely see where your inspiration came from - beautifully interpreted!! I like that you are using cropped photos - I am working with some right now - the change in shape is a fun challenge in itself.

  2. Lovely page as usual. I don't know about you but I think spring came yesterday and has gone again. Pouring with rain here.

    Hope you are keeping well x

  3. I love this page I like the freshness of it and that is what I think is the essence of the photo inspiration

  4. That is such a fun story and a clever page. It is great to see how we all took the photo different ways and different degrees of being literal.
