Weekend Inspiration…

truly-inspirational

Ahhh…the weekend.  For most people weekend means a few days of family, fun, relaxation, good food, and a little less stress.  This year is the first year in my married life (nine years) that we have actually had weekends off.  I am TRULY enjoying it.  This weekend is even more exciting…my hubby surpised me with a night at a hotel BY MYSELF.  Oh yea…I am excited.  20 hours of pure QUIET.  Just me and my laptop and a ton of stories I want to tell. I can’t WAIT to get scrapping!  I needed a little inspiration so I went searching through the galleries to see what other scrappers have been up to.  One thing for sure…love is in the air galleries!

Here are some of the pages and projects I am loving…

ONESIE by jjstar

What a fun thing to do! I would have loved these for my little ones and even the big siblings as a “baby is coming home” present!

39-facts39 FACTS by Shades of Bliss

I love how she got so much information about herself on one page!  I also love how she used the word art to highlight certain parts of her personality.  It keeps the reader interested and keeps the eye moving through the page.

LOVING YOU by KristenRice

Kristien made this gorgoeus layout that shows great element layering and shadow work.  I especially love the wire LOVE.

aam_enoughsaidENOUGH SAID by SuzyQScraps

This one cracks me up!  And it is proof that sometimes pictures do speak a thousand words!

natalie-daydreamerDay Dreamer by Sammi23

This one is just so sweet and pink and dreamy.  I just ADORE it. The repeated pictures add a really cool effect to the layout and all the girly colors just make me think candies and litte girl giggles.

ah_trulyTRULY by Amy Huitchinson.

I love the sweet photo and her use of elements.  And, it always makes me smile when I see designers still scrapping.

I am always looking for fun ways to use my digi supplies and now that I have my iphone working again, I think I may just have to make some wallpaper!

lilach-harayonWAITING FOR YOU by LilachO

This layout is so sweet and soft and a great way to document a pregnancy!  I love the multiple photos of her growing belly with the ultrasound photo as the main image.

little_things2LITTLE THINGS by Kayleigh

The black, red, and white on this layout work so beautifully on this layout!  What a great tribute to the love of her life!

MY WORLD by my3hens

I just LOVE the red and the playfulness of this layout. And while nornally I am not one for shaped photos, this is an excellent example of a layout that does it very, very well!

pregnancy_cravings_010409PREGNANCY CRAVINGS by Kayleigh

Now I know I already posted one layout by Kayleigh..but hey, I love what I love, right?  This is such a great layout, both from a design perspective and from a storytelling perspective.  The visual story here is great.  Not only will later generations know what she craved, they will also get to see what it looked like.  No doubt today’s packaging will look “old” and “outdated” to future generations!

thewho82THE WHO by Melissa

This  layout by Melissa is fantastic.  She takes a memory from a long time ago (1982!) and creates a page about it in 2009!  She didn’t let the fact that she didn’t have a photo stop her from recording the memory!

So, what you are YOU going to scrap this weekend?  Link us up to any NEW pages you create this weekend and I will pick three random scrappers to win some coupons to sponsoring designers stores!  Hey, with all the scrapping I hope to get done, I might even enter 😉
