One Main Scrapper for Inspiration/LO Share

Good morning everyone.... well it has been a scrapilicious weekend for me! I started scrapping around dinner time yesturday and quit at 2 am. I managed to get 4 LOs done!! WAHOOOOOO... I plan on scrapping some more today too.. John is picking up another batch of pics at Costco ... new pics = new inspiration!

Another LO to share (not from the 4 I made yesturday.. I still need to snap pics of those). I did this LO from the Bad Girls Decmeber kit and entered their monthly Apron challenge. I didn't win, but managed to get another page done and use some of the stash! LOL

My Lexa.. I love this pic of her!

I have been quite pleased with the way my style has evolved. It has changed completely since my Doodlebug days. I tend to choose more of the shabby chic/collagy style, and tend to be more pleased with the end result. That being said I have thought about why it has changed and one MAIN person comes to mind!!


For those of my blog readers that are unfamiliar with Steph's work, do yourself a favour and go check out her blog. True, I am biased as she is a close friend, but that set aside, this woman oozes talent like it's nobody's business. Her work isn't just scrapping... IT'S ART! When I am stuck on a LO, I will go and check out her blog and suddenly I am inspired again. I have seen her work in real life too, and the steps she goes through to reach that perfect masterpiece is mind boggling.. she makes it look so easy.. while I sit back in awe, wondering if I can have just one small chunk of her creative mind....LOL Since meeting her and becoming close to her, my scrapping have improved 100%. While yes I have many people who inspire me (all my YAYA' Steph always sticks out like a sore thumb...

So Stephie.. you are my muse.. thank you for inspiring me that way you do!!!

Here are a few pieces (well maybe a tad more than a of her work that I just LOVE LOVE LOVE! If you love them too, stop by her blog and leave her a comment!

Well that is about it for today's entry.. I am off to scrap some more (housework just has to wait)..LOL
