Found some Inspiration! To get ‘er done! Survive!

You all know the drill, problems with the computer! Mine was the browser, it was giving me fits.  My dear and precious hubby got in, and found the problem.  We had to take the browser off completely…all of it! I said just do it, no backup of bookmarks, links, just get it done.  I will start fresh.  It did fix the problem, all is well with my computer, but I spent the evening linking for my tool bar, the main places I go to, re-entering passwords, and bugging my friends for links I forgot.  There were some I had was placing on my tool bar, I thought what a great way to inspire you to get a fun page done.

First off is The Digi Dares. This is a great way to get a page done, and maybe win some fun things along with it! The team there will challenge you and then give some examples of the challenge and it really makes you think and my favorite use your stash!

Another is go to your favorite scrapping forum, for challenges, here are a few I love to frequent: The Digi Chicks, Oscraps and Catscraps, but there are so many with fun challenges, and you can either win free kits or free points towards purchases.

I am seeing some really neat ideas for scrappers in a contest form, I just recently signed up over at The Studio and am excited to see how it works.  I saw this one also, and it looks intriguing over at Ginger Scraps. I love the idea of Scrapping Survivor! It is being trapped in Granma’s attic, I think I just talked myself into it!

Getting a page done can sometimes inspire you to finish more, and then you look and you have 20 pages and are all ready for a book to be printed! That is all worth it!

Pure and Simple – but Perfect

I run across pages that go together now and again in the gallery, but these two just jumped out at me.  I want to be able to make such perfectly simple pages!

The B&W and bits of tape along with the little yellow flowers is remarkable.  Her is Shaui’s 2nd one:

Shaui’s pages are a delight to see, and I can tell she prints them.  I invite you to be inspired by her whole gallery!

Dear Photograph

A friend on Facebook posted this blog Dear Photograph! I was hooked.  Photographer Taylor Jones got the idea to combine the photos from the past to a picture from today.

Here is an example that I thought would be so remarkable for a life book for a child:

Dear photograph, Time to walk the dog again. Nikki Lynn

one more to tug at your heart strings:

Dear Photograph,  Can you tell him to turn around? I wanna see that cute little baby face again. Thanks, Nicole

These photographs stir me, and I hope they remind you how important these pages we make really are for generations to come.  Get your pages ready, because the Semi Annual Single Page Double Up Sale Starts August 5th.
