Inspiration for Sunday... and Monday!

So today is an interesting day. The sun is shining (yea!), and it is warming up a little, so spring is certainly in the air! That alone is enough to inspire me, but I thought I would take Colleen's challenge from the Scrapdango forum and blog about somethings that inspire me.

1. Spring. I love everything about it, and those first days of being able to open the windows make me feel creative and ready to create.

2. My children. I know this is a common one that you already know about, but it's true. My kids and their photos inspire me to scrap. Who could resist these pictures?

First time this year with bare toes outside!

3. A Challenge. Right now I am scrapping for the Scrapdango DT call. I have completed two layouts, and I have one more and a altered item or card to complete, and I am loving the way things are coming together. It is nice to have a break from Scrap n' Art work and challenge myself in another way. And I would love to make the Scrapdango team, they have gorgeous kits, and the forum is a lot of fun.

4. Last but not least, my faith and the desire to leave a legacy of faith and heritage inspire me. I want my kids to know what I think, how I feel, and what I believe, even if I am not around to tell them. THAT is why I scrap, and that is what keeps me going, even if there is no mojo.

Of course, I should also mention that I do LOVE the feeling of completing a layout that I am proud to share and claim as my art. Don't we all?

Happy Sunday!
