New Sketches and Favorite Blog!

I have a hero in my scrapbook world. Whenever I need inspiration whether its with scrapbooking or life, I check out my favorite blogger and scrapbook designer, Suzy Plantamura, Her stories and pictures always make for a smile. Her designs are incredibly adorable and real. Anyone I have referred her blog to has ultimately fallen in love. I love, love, love Suzy's Blog.

Please send me your favorite blogs. I would love to add them to this one for everyone else to see. The more the merrier guys!!!

And to keep up with the spirit of National Scrapbook Day, I am posting a few sketches to hopefully inspire your pages this Saturday. Have fun!!!

Have you lost your Mojo before National Scrapbook Day?

I am sitting here doing a little shopping for adhesives and some for new fresh lines and ofcourse looking for some great layout ideas for this weekend, but if you are like me, and you lose your mojo (your inspiration) sometime in the middle of this very anticipated all-day crop, here is what I have found for us.

The owner of my local store, Nana Campana ( has a great blog called Sketch Inspiration: Inspiring Ideas and Creativity What a great way to gain new layout ideas with our own material. I love it. You can also join and get weekly challenges and can dispay your layouts inspired by the sketches she post.

Journal, Journal, Journal

Don't forget to journal... We may remember where and when your pictures were taken and we know the stories behind them, but our children and their children won't, so if we journal we share those thoughts for generations to come making it just that much more special to them.
