Okay I am trying my hand at another color inspiration challenge. It really gets me motivated to try other other people's stuff. My layout is from Easter, my sons egg dye stained hands holding an egg. I have to say that my house has the most terrible lighting. Everything goes yellow and I try to play with light sources but really it's beyond me, I just pretend to know what I am doing half the time! Thanks for looking. Visit here for more creative ideas.

As I prepared my lunch, the new issue sat staring at me, waiting to be peeked through.
(I love to read while I eat, so lucky for me the mail comes right at lunch time. )
It got me thinking..."Do other people have any new magazine "rituals"?
For instance, I check out the cover and read the points of interest, then I skim through every page. (Except this time, the Fake Ad had me rushing each page) When I get to the back, I review every page from back to front. Then I usually take time to read the letter from the editor then proceed to articles. I must look at each issue a million times and begin to mark pages of interest with the mini post-it notes. Which will eventually be taken out and put in the idea file.
This all sounds so crazy and methodical...I think I need to relax =)
Do you have a process? For fun...Please share. I would love to find out if I am the only neurotic one.

I have recently been perusing many blogs of creative people.
I found this site http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/index.html
and it is chuck full of surprises and tutorials galore. I decided to
partake in her color inspiration. I do not have a lot of Stampin up supplies but I still do have lots of Close To My Heart stuff so I used that and some other goodies.

Thanks for looking and I look forward to becoming a blogger myself.
