Blog Tour

I have not written on my blog in a long time!  I am so sorry!  I have not scrapbooked a lot this summer and I had technical difficulties logging on to my blog since we had changed internet provider and email-  What a mess! Obviously I have gained access to my blog again and will be posting more regularly.

So I have the perfect way to get back into the swing of things!  How about a blog tour? A blog hop, sort of like a train of inspiration. 
I was nominated by my friend Michelle.  I strongly suggest you check out her site here .
She is awesome and so very talented.  Prepare to be inspired! 

I was asked these questions:

1. What am I working on right now? 
Organizing my scrap space  in order to prepare for a crop this weekend.  I am planing my card workshop for later this month. I am also going to create a memory board for my mother in law using canvas and foam like I did for Let's Capture our Memories.

2. How long does it take me to create a project?
It varies but in general, not very long.  For a layout- 1-2 hours average.  I sometimes start a layout at night, leave it on my table overnight and return to it with fresh eyes the next day to finish it.  

3. What are my favorite things to create with at the moment? 
I love taking out a picture and doing a standard layout.  I used to be intimidated by cards, but I love making them now.  On my recent trip I made a CTMH My Crush book where I journaled everything we did.  I simply love it and will definitely make another one for our next trip. 

4. How does my writing/creating process work? 
Everything usually starts a picture and then I pick the paper, sketch and everything else to match the story I want to tell

5. How do I become inspired and stay inspired? 
I have to give myself deadlines, otherwise I don't set time for myself to scrapbook.  It really is a therapy for me, I love it, I need it.  If I have fresh pictures to scrap that is all I need to be inspired most of the time.  

6. What is my signature style?

My style is ever changing.  I love bright colors, flowers, bling and ribbon.  I guess it would be a mix of whimsy, romantic and fun.

Now I have to keep this train going and nominate some of the scrapbookers that inspire me.  Other than Michelle, there are lots of fellow scrappers that inspire me.  Not all of them have blogs though. 
My first pick is one of my biggest inspiration and the one that encourages me to expand my scrappy horizons.
She was already nominated but I think you need to see her work

Aurélie over at Rustic Scraps

My second nominee is a whiz with cards.  Her cards are always so pretty and inpiring.

That's it for now.  Come check my blog again tomorrow where I will showcase My Crush album.  Can't wait to show it to you!

Have a creative day!
