Weekly challenge - Viva Espana

Oh this weekend I went to Sunny Spain Y Viva Espana
I rode on a Ryan Air 'plane Y Viva Espana
I tried to chat a matador, in some cool cabana
But he had senoritas by the score, Espana por favor

Yes readers, this weekend I was lucky enough to have a little trip to Madrid. I couldn't fail but soak up a little inspiration alongside the Sangria and I know that this country of contrasts will be perfect to set your creative juices salivating.

Even if you've never been, how can you fail to feel the heat and energy emanating from this country.

Your challenge this week, is to let Spain enter your veins and create something evocative of this country of contradiction.

Here are a few ideas to get you going...











¿Dónde le tomará su imaginación?

Full instructions for entering our challenge can be found on our sidebar. Buena suerte.

I see many things in my abstract Fighting Myself and a red bull has always been one of them, so I felt it would suit the challenge. Not sure what anyone else sees :).
Stay inspired!

My favorite vacation ever was to Spain so I couldn't wait to tackle this challenge. While I'm not sure I did it justice, I did enjoy the process.....
