LMCB - Alphabet challenge

Good morning everyone... Happy May 24!!!!  
Tomorrow we celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday - as a teenager... I celebrated the fact that A- it was a day off from school and B - first long weekend of the "summer"

today at Lasting memories we have a new challenge for you to join
now the DT struggled with this one for a bit and I think that everyone took different inspiration from the alphabet.  Some picked a letter to use on the page some used reading 
Here is my inspiration and i used different coloured letters and tried to use my alphabet in a new way by cutting out the letters with my cricut and I love love love how it turned out.  seems to be the new thing to do in the scrappy world. 

Here is my two page LO (please ignore the magnets in the corners)
this is a special group of ladies from across Canada who I train with.  We all go together in Toronto for additional training and the one page was left with inspirational words from the week
this page was inspired by the following sketch from inspired blueprints
there was some turning of the sketch and flipping but the inpirations came from it... do you see it?
and page two sketch inspiration also came from inspired blue prints loved the large space at the top for everyone to write their inspirational words

some close ups...

below is my inspirational words from the training
my first pictures i forgot to journal... here it is now
Other challenges that inspired me:
the crafters cafe - for woman
paper craft star - pastels
scrap it with a song - mr. blue skys
life.paper.scrapbook - colour challenge
