So I was thinking about sketches and layouts and inspiration this morning. I read a blog that commented about giving themselves permission to use a sketch. I TOTALLY understand that! Why do we think we have to do it ALL ourselves? it's okay to look and be inspired (THANK YOU PINTEREST!). I love the challenge of look at some one's layout/sketch breaking it down and making it my own. I think that "study" came from the MANY hours that I spent in the DREADED fabric store with my mom with nothing to look at but pattern books. (my brothers HATED this as well...) this is NOT very exciting for a little child. ANYWAY, my point is, that my mom would ask me if I liked a certain pattern. As a child I couldn't get past the material used. My mom would ask me to look past the material and LOOK at THE PATTERN! As I got older the "vision" came, and I understood what she meant. Thanks mom for those TORTUROUS hours in the store I did learn something but I still DON'T like the fabric store.... :)
Okay now I feel better, got that off my chest! I do have a layout I wanted to share of my BEAUTIFUL mother on her birthday. I used the Hallow's Eve kit from Scrapbook Circle....
Gotta run--well, actually can some beans! Thanks for stopping in for a visit!
