I must be doing something right because Beth keeps asking me back. Thanks Beth! And I love the Animal Kingdom and the Kilimanjaro Safaris so I jumped at the chance to talk scrapbooking about them. This time I want to talk about inspiration. Sometimes you have photos but you just don’t know where to start. When this happens I look for just a little something to get me going. In this case I turned to Mousescrappers.
For my first page I found their Weekly Challenge. This one was fun because it asked me to use scanned in memorabilia. That’s when I saw the photo of the Fab 4 in Safari gear and I had that moment of ‘ah-ha!’. It also helps when you can see what other people do for the same challenge. That gives me a lot of ideas.
For the second page I went to their Template Challenges. This one is definitely a go to when you have absolutely no idea where to start. They actually give you a blank template and you just fill it in!! Typically they provide it in either Photoshop or png format. Sometimes you may get a Storybook Creator format. And all of these can be used for either digital or traditional pages.
Here’s my twist on the template created by Julie of Goldiscraps and her 3 Bears. For both pages today I used my Safari Kit.
Now you have no excuse for not getting those pages done. Mousescrappers has a ton of ideas and resources. If you stop by look me up. I am MaryD73 and I would love to see your pages.
