Here's a shocker, I have actually done another layout...

Two in one month, who would have thought it. My mojo seems to be returning, in no small part to the talented scrapbookers that I have seen on Pinterest(see my last post)and been inspired by.
My challenge to myself last year was to do at least one layout a month, but now I think I will try & push a bit harder.

Do you Pin??

Over the last few years my creative mojo slipped away and occasionally burst back for a small time so I wanted to share with you one of my obsessions that has kept the creative juices trickling.....
Pinterest.... I have been a member for quite some time now and apart from my super talented scrapbooking friends, it remains the primary source of my inspiration. Prior to Pinterest I used to cut out the layouts from magazines, but that got ridiculous...this is so much easier and has introduced me to many more talented people.
I would really like to know what you think of Pinterest and how you use it. If you would like me to check out your boards, just leave me a link in the comments. If you would like to see my boards, just go here.

January Layout

Wow has it really been over 2 weeks my last post. I have been madly creating but apparently not sharing. Here is my January layout all about Christmas (and our annual traditions)..... 

I am loving the Polaroid look as it brings back so many fond memories, when having instant access to a photo was so cool (back in the olden days before digital). I also dragged out the old sewing machine to add some texture to the layout.

I hope your Christmas was a good one: I consider myself lucky because I actually got a photo of the kids all in one spot - at Grandma's request.

Summer Dolls

Starting the new year with some more Prima dolls (sorry, Lorena will have to wait a bit longer to appear). It is a hot summer here at the moment, so thought my dolls should reflect the season.
