Georgia on my mind, again.

Boy, am I tired! I went to bed late Sunday night. Only after a couple hours of sleep, I  stumbled out of bed at around 2 or 3 AM to get ready to head off on a flight to Atlanta. I felt like a walking zombie yesterday. Ack! Good thing I got tons of sleep last night!

Other random stuff — Toot for me! I am now officially an inductee into the Scrapping the Music hall of fame! I didn’t even expect to win the last challenge. Thank you to the girls of STM for the continuous inspiration you give me.

Also, I was picked to be one of the guest designers for the month of March over at Let’s Scrap. For the month of March, we were allowed to use our own sketch, so I decided to make one to use.

…and here’s a card I made with the sketch:

Here are some other layouts that I worked on over the weekend:

It’s a new week for a new sketch over at Pink Sketches. Come check it out for some inspiration. Here’s my take on this week’s sketch:

Another layout I finished was done for the current Dreamgirls challenge. The challenge required that you use “something out of the scrap aisle” and a safety pin. On top of that, you were given an ad for inspiration.

I stumbled upon another challenge blog, Scrap Schemes, and thought their challenges were a neat concept. Basically, you follow a “scheme” and create a layout. Here’s mine:

Last layout was inspired by the girls over at Scrapmojo. The latest challenge is to create a layout about “if you ruled the world”. I had fun with this one.

Recently, I was nominated by both Karen and Deana with this award:

I’m supposed to nominate other people, so if you guys want to participate please play along. Otherwise, don’t worry about it. 😉 — Mica, Lydia, Sophia, Kelsy, and Sarah.

Random  pictures for those who want to see some CUTENESS from the weekend:

Ne-ner, ne-ner!

"Ne-ner, ne-ner!"

Maui meet some new Schnauzer friends at the park!

Bet you cant catch me!

"Bet you can't catch me!"

I love when its sunny outside... I get to play all day!

"I love when it's sunny outside... I get to play all day!"

New Question from a blog reader: where do you get inspiration for your layout designs from?

I get inspired by EVERYTHING! … I look at other people’s blogs, challenge sites, magazine ads, ads on the street, ads on tv, old photographs, talking to people, etc. I pull from just about everything. When I see something I can turn into a project, I do just that.

Okay, that’s it for now. Stay tuned for pictures of my adventures this week.



((note to my future self: I feel so accomplished and really spoiled today! You’ve accomplished a lot in the past two days!))
