Prize is 3 images of winners choice.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Fruit (you can use its colour as inspiration (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

Along with the yummy taste, strawberries remind me of summer, picking them straight from the garden and eating them before they even make it back up to the house!

I found this very hard to choose just one fruit as I eat most fruit
so I have cheated a little as I LOVE blue as many of you know so i have chosen blueberries
as my inspiration and used tones of blue in my Mermaid


My favorite fruit is the lilikoi the Hawaiian name for passionfruit.  The bloom is beautiful and the fruit has a delicious unique flavor.  I love fresh squeezed lilikoi juice and lilikoi butter is so wonderful on hot pancakes.  Since I've never seen a lilikoi stamp, I used it's color, yellow, as the inspiration for my card.


I love blackberries or as we call them in the north brambles. It is always enjoyable to pick them in the hedgerows and bring them home to make jam and jelly. Mmm I can taste it now.


I like most fruits, but I love sweet English strawberries. When you start to see Pick Your Own signs etc. it means summer is here and Wimbledon will soon be starting and I love to watch the tennis.

Now I am partial to all sorts of fruit but my favourite fruit flavour is lemon...lemon drizzle cake, sherbet lemons, lemon cheesecake, lemon doughnuts, Thorntons lemon chocolates, lemon possett...need I go on!? 

I'm not a huge fan of any particular fruit (would rather have a plate of veg) but
I do quite like a mixed fruit salad with a dollop of vanilla ice-cream.  It takes
me right back to my childhood and Sunday teatime.


I love fruit. My favorite fruit is fresh pineapple. Delicious sweet and juicy.

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and
showcase Your Your Favourite Fruit (you can use its colour as inspiration (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
