*inspiration*


I finally checked out flickr and it is awesome! I can't pull myself away from it! There are so many fun pictures on there and so much inspiration to be found. Above are just a few of my favorites. Some I like for the colors, some for the composition, some for the project or item itself. Very cool stuff.

I also wanted to share the thankful album I made for my mom and siblings that I couldn't share before Christmas. I made this book with the freebies I posted about last month. It was really easy to put together since Jessica had already designed the pages. I just opened each page in photoshop elements and typed in the journaling (I highlighted a two-page spread for each person in my family with what they said they were grateful for at Thanksgiving dinner), then uploaded the pages and pictures to wal-mart to be printed, added a few other embellishments, punched three holes in everything and tied it with ribbon. Easy and fun to make.




You can see the rest of this book here.

I actually scrapbooked last night for the first time since September (other than this grateful mini book, cards, altered stuff, etc). But as far as an actual layout goes, this is the first in a long time. I need to finish up one thing on it and then I will share.

We took down our tree yesterday and put away all of our Christmas stuff. I wouldn't have minded leaving it up a little longer but our tree was so dead the ornaments were falling off of it. Now the spot where it was seems so bare, but it's good to have everything nice and clean for the new year.

I hope everyone is having a beautiful Sunday!
