Arrow IFC74 5/10/10 {Scraplift a Diva}awjmgmom

Hello Scrappy Chicks and welcome back to the Inspiration Found Challenge! I've actually missed scrapbooking for awhile so hopefully that means I have some much needed mojo.

Do I have a treat for you today!!! I recently discovered an amazing scrapbooking talent in our gallery here at SCS. One layout of hers caught my eye and then I viewed her gallery and was hooked.

Are Diva for this challenge is awjmgmom AKA Valerie. I'd like for you to get to know a little bit about her:

From Valerie:
Quote:
I'm a SAHM mom of two boys and I love all things crafty, but scrapbooking seems to be the one I'm "best" (it's all relative though.) I started scrapbooking in November 2001 when I took a class at a LSS. (I still have some paper and embellies from wayyyyy back then.)

I like the look of clean lines, so I tend to gravitate to that as my style. Since I've joined SCS in Jan 2009, I've been inspired by all of the great ladies in the goal thread! I've scrapped more in the last 1.5 yrs than in all of them combined I think before that! I use it as a creative outlet, so many times my journaling is minimal. My husband is actually the type to journal an event so I should recruit him for that part of my pages...lol (he actually takes a notebook on vacation and jots down notes per day.)

I'm trying to improve my card making skills, so I really love to look in the gallery at all the papercrafting stuff.
I think one of the main reasons I chose Valerie this week is because her style is so different from mine yet it's one that I often try to emulate because I do like the look of clean lines and white space. However, I'm not often successful.

Now on to the challenge:

Your challenge is to visit awjmgmom's gallery and find a layout that you would like to scraplift. You do not have to copy the page element for element you can pick and choose elements that inspire you such as the color scheme, title design, overall layout of the elements etc. And I do encourage you DigiChicks to get digi-with-it and create your own interpretation using your amazing digital skills and products.

Please use the keywords IFC74 when uploading your pages to the gallery. Don't forget to come back here and link your pages up so that we can leave you some love. You will find all pages submitted for this challenge HERE

Have a great week everyone and I'm looking forward to your fabulous creations.

Be Blessed,
Jenn

Fabulous work so far Ladies!!! Thanks so much for playing along. I know how valuable everyone's time is these days and your participation means the world to me.

Now...I need to get my own page done. I just am having a hard time nailing down one that I wanted to lift.
