Find Inspiration Everywhere!

Good evening bloggers! Today I am going to get you up and going on creating an inspiration journal. Everyday I see things that inspire me or intrigue me--tv commercials, blogs, nature, magazines, etc, etc. I always "think" I will remember these things later, but inevitably I forget. So, I created an inpiration journal to help me remember all those fabulous ideas that come up at odd times of the day.

Go out and purchase a small inexpensive notebook. This should be easy since school shopping has already started! You can do a standard size notebook or a smaller notebook--you pick! Now it's time to get creative. Cover your notebook inside and out with patterned paper, embellishments, and stickers to your liking. Viola! You have a creative inspiration notebook! Now all you need to do is fill it! Keep this notebook with you at ALL times. Write anything and everything that strikes you at the moment. Cut pictures out of magazines. Color in different color combination's you see. This journal is just for you so do whatever you like with it! When you get ready to sit down and scrap---grab your journal. All those wonderful ideas will come rushing back to you and in no time you will have created a fabulous layout (or two!).
