Where do you find inspiration? I was thinking about this as I worked on my layout because I was totally inspired by one of the papers. I used mostly the Thinking of You paper from the "Happy Day" collection by Pebbles. This collection has very crisp clear designs in vibrant colors. Its really a great collection to have on hand for just about any photos.

is the Thinking of You paper that inspired my layout. I purchased two
sheets because I knew I would want to use the white side with the grid

thought of my photos from Epcot and then I decided to do a grid type
layout with squares and rectangles using my photos and the elements on
cut the "let's go" from the "Let's just go" block and layered over
flowers cut from papers and the green square block from the paper above.
I punched the corrugated Starbucks logo from the coffee sleeve that I
kept from my trip. I keep lots of little things from my trips and I am
trying harder to incorporate them into my layouts.
printed my journaling on a scrap of vellum from my stash and the trick
with printing on vellum and having it dry properly is to use a thinner
font and set your printer to plain paper on a medium or draft quality
setting so that it doesn't lay down too much ink. It will dry very
added the heart confetti pieces with foam tape for a little dimension
and the red star and arrow clips add just the right amount of dimension
and another media type. I hope you will try some of this "Happy Day"
collection because it really is one of my favorite new collections
