{Everyday Inspiration}

It's "Everyday Inspiration Week" over on the Imaginisce blog, and I have some inspiration to share with you! Besides scrapbooking, I love to quilt. Well, since I've only made one quilt, you can't really say I quilt, but you can say I love to look at quilts. I am mesmerized by all the colors, patterns and designs. I like looking at quilt blogs too, which is where I found the inspiration for my layout. I love the part chevron/part arrow design that are both so popular in scrapbooking right now.

For my layout, I followed the arrow/chevron design and included some pictures from our getaway in Monterey.

I did a little machine stitching to add the arrows to my cardstock, then added the photos and the title.

This is the website where I found this beautiful quilt. Notice where her inspiration for the quilt came from?? A rubber stamp set! There are so many places to find inspiration for your layouts. Where have you found ideas for your scrapbooking??
As always, thanks for looking!

I really like your layout. It's colorful and clean -- just like your inspiration.


Also, I think that if you completed at least one quilt, you are a quilter! Use the title with pride.
