October Inspirations

I'll sprinkle a little magic dust over the thread in hopes everyone will magically have time and mojo to do one of these.

Here are the basics of this challenge: Every month (that I remember to), I will post a sketch and an ad inspiration. The challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create one or more scrapbook layouts using one or both inspirations. You can follow the inspiration religiously or give it your own creative spin. Same thing with the sketch. I just want to encourage you (and me!) to get some pages done. You don't have to sign up for the challenge or anything, just do it! This is not a contest and there is no prize for winning. We all win by completing a layout or two or more!

Once you have created your layout, post it on the board! It helps if you put sketch or ad inspiration in your title in the "Show Us Your Work" section. Then we can all admire your work. Post a link to this thread as well.

Good news! This is bonus month in inspirationland! I'm going to link you up to 5 sketch variations and two ad inspirations! That should give everyone's creative juices something to get drooling over...

The sketches are from Amanda's column in the September CK. Okay, so they are variations on the same sketch, but there are still plenty of ideas there to get you going. You can see her article online here (the sketches are on page 2):


The ads are just two that I saw recently while waiting somewhere. However, they too offer variations on a theme. See what you can do with the attached ads.

Okay, now go be inspired! LOL, and DO something about it!
