Learning to Use Inspiration As It Strikes
I walked through the room where my kids were watching T.V. and on the screen was an image that struck me as soon as I saw it. I don't know what they were watching, but it appeared to be a blurb about a children's artist and they were showing some of his/her work. The image that caught my eye was a painting the artist had done of a tree. The tree had red branches and in the branches were dozens of birds in bright, primary colors.
I thought to myself, "That would be really cute on a scrapbook page!" Normally, I would just think my thought and go on with my daily stuff and probably forget all about it. This time, I went straight to my scrap room, pulled out my Noel Mignon Gingersnap and Passionate kits and went to work.
Instead of birds, I used buttons to suggest a tree full of bright fall colors to go with these fall pictures of my children. I can't say it turned out as cute as the artist's painting but I had a lot of fun creating it!
So now I'm going to challenge you . . . Next time you see a fun idea, don't file it away in your brain. Go scrap it right away!

It's not quite all put together, and the lighting in these pictures isn't that great. But here is a tour of my new scrap room. ;) ...
