    Welcome, Fifi. Let's get inspired!

  4. I made this layout as the hanging stuff reminded me of length, which is why I chose a longer skinnier layout, and all dressed up....self explanatory.

  5. So, the picture you posted made me think of fashion, and when I think fashion, my mind immediately goes to pictures of my kids and some of the wacky ensembles that they put together. While this may not be really wacky, I think this picture is hilarious and knew I had to use it for this challenge. So, here is "Toddler Fashion" using the {Spring Reinvented} kit from JB Studio here at GDS. I used the {Blue Ribbon Champ} template from LissyKay Designs. The page border and blue rubbings in the background are from the {Lucky to Have You} kit from JB Studio.

    I was inspired to do a layout from the 1970's. The photo made me think of older photos, but not as old as vintage, so I dug out an old, very unhappy, photo of myself...Name:  Wenche-in-the--70's_edited-.jpg

    There were several things that inspired me about the Inspiration photo. One was that several separate items coming together in to a cohesive picture. I was also inspired by the orange, brown and beige color combo. But in the end without trying, I ended up with a few things about the layout that unknowingly mirrored the inspiration. There was the angle of the hat, the milk connection and each item in the layout including papers, stamps etc were all selected from individual kits. I decided to use one item from each kit, or freebie, I downloaded in the first week of April and see what I could achieved. I did not distinguish between whether I bought the kit or it was a freebie, or whether is was a kit, mini kit, or just a free cluster or stamp. I started at the first one in the folder and continued down alphabetically till I reach the last one. I managed to use something from ever download folder with one exception. I only need to recolor two items, and I was amazed at how the different items blended. It was sort of an extra challenge to myself to not skip any,.
