You know, I've turned down many a design team. It's not particularly my "thang" but when my friend Lara came a knockin' with a great idea I couldn't resist.
So, I'm a guest designer over at Inspired Scrapbooking, and although I have only done one layout so far, I promise more before the month's end.
Why, why did I accept such an offer?
Well, let me tell you. I love the eye candy. I'm not talking men, I'm talkig patterns, colors, textures, etc. I love the go down the isles of stationary stores or fabric stores and just take it all in. It's inspiring, and even though I have a house full of white walls, I do like color in the other items in my house, as well as my scrapbook pages. Anyway, what Lara's gonna do is pick some cool stuff (each month will have a new theme, this month's theme is greeting cards, which is perfect since we all probably got at least one for mother's day), post it and then post hers (and her fine guest designers) take on the item, and how they were inspired by it. There've been a lot of cool groups on 2P's doing a similar thing, but I hate finding the links to it -- so this is nice.
Anyway, sometimes I get stuck in a rut in my life and being inspired by other things totally helps. Go check it out. I just did a layout about my purse.
