It's Summer Break!

Okay, my inspiration this today is to take this week off! I know, lame right? But I will be more inspired later this week and will have some more fabulous ideas AND I WILL POST my inspiration layout then!
SO, for those of you who just joined us... pick a challenge you didn't get to try yet or one that you want to re-do and post by next Monday. Which means I will post two challenges... something inspired and a favorite challenge!

Tuesday, June 10, 2008


Your challenge for this week is create a layout about what inspires you. There are no restrictions for this one. It can be anything, from what inspires you to be creative or what inspires you to breathe! Whatever inspires you!


Yes, I know this is late! Yes, I realize there are no photos on my layout. So, the moral of this story is don't lend your camera to your hubby to take out of town and then expect that the hotel is going to expeditiously ship the camera back in time for you to complete your weekly challenge OR in time for your fifth grader's graduation ceremony. You will be stuck using an old 35mm camera that while you are relieved to find the external flash and see that it does indeed have a light meter, it does not have auto-focus, weighs twenty pounds and is impossible to use while your three year old is having a tantrum and is pinned up against the wall so he doesn't try to escape AGAIN while people give you major stink eye for your inability to control your child and a mother you have known for 3 years calls you Angela and then is offended later when you didn't return her greeting because you didn't realize that she was talking to you because your name is NOT Angela. I hate Mondays! THIS is my layout so just deal!

My Collections

This is what I did Friday night: a 2 page spread about my collections. Quite fun!

Monday, June 02, 2008


As women, we have them, bizarre inexplicable collections of things that somehow define us. Your challenge this week is to create a layout that pays homage to your collection(s). Anything from shoes to eyeshadow and everything in between. If you want to scrap your scrapping supplies, you could... but do you really want photo documentation of your millions of dollars of paper online where anyone, including your significant other could find it? Me? I am thinking shoes... he sees them everyday in the closet, there are no surprises there!!

5 Products

This challenge was harder than I thought it would be, not using more than 5 products was difficult... that is the opposite of what I thought would give me problems. My five products were: cardstock, double-sided Heidi Swapp paper, ribbon, one sheet of stickers (this is probably a grey area, but it was my challenge!) and ink.
