Inspiration to Kick Off Your Week

It is obvious to me that kids are back in school and that people are spending more time scrapping! The galleries are just FULL of amazing layouts and inspiration. Here are some of my favorites from the weekend (all images are linked to original gallery postings).

This layout is perfect. I love the high contrast colors, the block design, and the great element use. I couldn’t improve on this if I tried!

This layout is just SO CUTE! I love how she shares her love for shopping and those elements are just SO PERFECT. I also love the flow of the journaling as a design element.

I am always amazed by layouts that make great use of patterned papers and those that can pull off circles. This layout does BOTH!

This layout, part of the Digi Dares, is just fabulous. The dare was to do a layout about something that happened the year you were born. What a fabulous way to take a look at history!

Since I have a slight obsession with two page layouts, I instantly noticed this layout. I love the heavy journaling, the tons of photos, and the fun elements.

I ADORE the simpleness of this layout. The super-simple design with the bright green just makes it POP out in the gallery. Perfection.

Recipe pages are some of my very favorite layouts. Food is such an important part of our lives and I love preserving these “stories” on scrapbook pages. Who wouldn’t want to cook when looking at a page this pretty?

Any page that can make me laugh (and sympathize!) on a Monday morning surely gets my vote! If you can’t read the journaling, click over to read it on the original post.

For me, scrapbooking is all about the stories and the preserving of memories. I want my kids and grandkids to know the little bits and pieces of my life that made me who I am. I think that this layout is one of those special ones. I love the HUGE title and the long journaling to share the story of the artist’s first house. I am sure it will be cherished!

Another perfect story and layout. I may not have met my true love through technology, but my life sure has been enriched in SO many ways! I owe a HUGE thank you to technology as well!

As you start another new week, I hope you find inspiration and time to share the stories of your heart!
