Inspiration ... Continuing the Journey

Inspiration, I found for me, comes from my family and the feelings they invoke when I look at a photo and really remember the event or even how I feel about them.  I see photos of my Grandmother Thomas and a love that only a grandmother and granddaughter can share comes to my heart.  When I look at photos of my children when they were younger I remember the laughter we all shared at things like homemade plays. Paper can inspire me, art, a design on a brochure, or even a song.  But nothing compares to my family.   Just thought I'd share a bit of what I found during my Journey.

I did pick up some inspiration from an old Halloween photo of me from when I was about 6 or 7 years old.  Again, one of those elusive photos I found when redoing a book my father made for my husband.  I love discovering old photos.  I found this layout design in the book  Time to Scrap: Techniques for Fast, Fun and Fabulous Scrapbook Layouts by Kathy Fesmire.  I'm really enjoying the layouts and techniques in this book.  I seem to be using it over and over again.  The contributing artists are Jennifer Gallacher, Julie Johnson, Shannon Taylor, and Shaunte Wadley.  For me they really nailed this book on the head.

  9. Great picture and fun LO, Debbie! Your parents were great to take the time to make sure your halloweens were fun. It is fun to see a homemade costume and make up. It seems like all of the costumes now are bought and not much effort put into them.

    You have really kept the same look about you through the years. Just turned from a cute little girl to a very pretty lady.
