Well... it seems that summer is officially over. Although I find fall very comforting and beautiful...I'm a bit sad to say goodbye to sunshine and blossoms (here in Alberta where we'll soon be under ten feet of ice and snow! LOL)

This layout by Stevie brings summer to a close with a stunning photo and a wrap up of summer for 2009!

Lately I've been in quite the creative funk. I know it has a lot to do with all that is going on in my life and that almost all of my stuff is still in boxes from our recent. However, I've been wanting and needing to create so to kick my creativity into gear again, I go with my old stand-by - scraplifting.

I recently found a new designer's blog that is very inspiring and decided to use one of her layouts to lift. Her name is Stephanie Dagan and her work is absolutely amazing. As soon as I saw her blog, I bookmarked it and knew I wanted to lift one of her layouts. The one I chose is titled "un jour".

Since the hardest part of any layout for me is the design, that's what I usually scraplift (Sketches are awesome for me as well). But if you struggle with other parts (like journaling, titles, color combos) "lift" those from other layouts or be inspired by them to jumpstart your creativity again.

For me, once I do a scraplift, I find myself back in the groove again able to create my 'own' work. I always learn something new in the process and try something I wouldn't normally try (like using all those patterned papers on one layout).

What's your old stand-by for getting your creativity going again?

Back to School

I can't believe that my kids go back to school in a few days. (in fact, we just had registration today!) It's rather bitter sweet for me this year though because my youngest starts Kindergarten.  While I'm excited for him to go I'm a bit sad that I won't have him around. Now, to get me wrong - I am definitely looking forward to those 3 hours alone!!! Most definitely!!

While I was thinking about back to school and all the items that we have to purchase and get ready for our kids to take with them I was thinking about making a little address/phone book for my daughter.  I seem to find these little pieces of paper with numbers all over her bedroom and (bad mommy that I am) have often thrown them out. I know.  How could I ever have done that!

Anyways, I was perusing the web the other day I came across some fabulous examples of exactly what I'd like to do.  The talented Shanna Vineyard created these for her daughters. Aren't they just adorable? They're exactly what I had pictured in my mind!

So, what scrapping goodies have you made for back-t0-school. Are you making things for the teachers, for your kids? I admit that I usually don't bother because I've got enough stuff to get ready. But with my daughter's birthday being the 5th I think she'd be thrilled to get something like this.
