Blog Surfing

When I started scrapbooking there were a plethora of inspirational sources out there; magazines, craft shows, message boards and scrapbook stores.  Flash forward several years, most of the scrapbook magazines are gone and the message board population has dwindled. However, the sources for scrapbook inspiration has not gone by the wayside. In fact the range of ideas out there are as varied as the amount of different scrapbookers. I love that! When scrapbook magazines were all the rage it seemed that there were really only so many scrapbookers that were getting published. The same scrapbookers over and over, got to the point where we actually knew the names of their children. The beauty of blogs is that everyone can get a little recognition. Anyone can have a layout pinned on pintrest and let me tell you, there is so much talent out there in the scrapbook world. Sure, it is a little more difficult to search but it is still out there! 
 I just had to share my most recent layout. Inspired by several layouts that I had recently pinned on pinrest, I created this layout with photos of my cousin and new bride. I played around with a little layering and inking. Most of the products on this layout are from MME with exception of the wooden swirly decoration that is Kaiser Kraft.
 Here is a close up. These types of layouts take a little longer than my usual layouts but they are so fun to get lost in and just create.
 I love the look of stitching but I hate dragging out my sewing machine.
 I am also still having fun creating layouts of my new niece. Love this little family.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week and keep creating!
