Inspire me.....

Where do you go for inspiration?
What makes you want to scrap?

I'm loving the blue skies and warmer weather we are having right now. Puts me in such a happy mood. I'm getting out and walking alot more which I think helps too.

I snuck in some sneaky scraptime yesterday. Dinner was prepped, we'd practised spellings and timestables, the kids were watching Hannah Montana, so I sat at my desk ready to start fresh LO. I took this Twisted Sketch. It's the second time I've tried to be inspired by it but again nothing came.
So I took the next step and went to my friend Ronda's blog for a read and a nose.
Ronda never ceases to amaze me with her creations. The artistic touch and honesty, she has such a natural flair. So within minutes I had my January Cocoa Daisy Kit open and I made this.

I saw this sketch in such a different light suddenly.

The twist this week is to add staples.

Another way I always feel inspired is to play along with challenges.
I find it such a quick way to get a LO started.
Butterfly Crafts launched a new challenge yesterday. It's a recipe challenge this time. And the recipe is :

Polka dots
Gingham Ribbon
Scalloped edge

Add as many of those as you can.

I love this photo that Ade took one morning at our resort as the hot air balloons went over.

We really really love it there at Bahama Bay.

Hope you have a lovely day and thank you to all of you who inspire me each day xxxx
