I've been published!!! Woohoo!

I have not told many people just those on Silvia Romeo's CT but my layout has been published in 3Scrapateers new Jan/Feb Ezine. I am so excited and just had to share with you all!

I made this layout with Vintage Basics by Silvia Romeo; optikVerve Labs Virtual Photographer; Scraplift from Lemenor; Fonts: Cooper Black, Edwardian Script ITC

I had not even realized that they had one until I was checking my mail one day and a notice came through for submissions for it. I thought I would try for it. Then a week later I got an e-mail stating they wanted to use my layout for the ezine. I am so stoked.

Anyhow, I was looking through the Ezine tonight and boy they have a lot of cool things in there. And over 300 mbs of freebies. My favorite is the Love It kit by Stacey Kluczny and DeDe Smith. It is so cute! I might just be getting this every month because it is only $5. Well, I am still excited. Things like this doesn't happen to me very often.

Are you inspired? Where does your inspiration come from?

Have you ever just got that creativity block and nothing seems to cure it? Well, that is where I am at right now. I am so sorry that I have not been around much as of late. I remember this time last year I couldn't stop doing pages. Well, I guess I can this year.

Where do you get your inspiration from? I usually get it from the paper scrapping magazines and sometimes through the new digital scrapbooking magazine. I like the paper ones more because it gives me more of a challenge to make it look like paper scrapping. I also love to look through galleries. I have to say that it is really fun. Well, I just have not had time to do any of these type of things so I am in a rut. I guess I need to free my time more don't I?

I did want to share with you all some sites I have come across in my little time I have spent on the computer and maybe it will inspire you. The first few are not scrapbooking sites but paper craft blogs. I hope you like them as much as I do.

The first is Work In Progress. She has such creativity I don't know how she sleeps at night. LOL! I wish I could do this. And I love her new challenge so check it out!

Second, is Taylored Expressions. Again, this is more of a paper craft blog but I bet you can get some great ideas for layouts but also to maybe craft a little with that love for scrapping!

Now here are a few of my favorite blogs that are scrapping blogs that give me great ideas for my scrapping and some actually have awesome templates if you are looking for some.

Kirsty Wiseman has to be one of my favorite blogs of all time. She is so creative. She does these awesome overlays once in a while but I think what my favorite thing about this blog is that she is such a terrific photographer. She really has an eye for taking absolutely fabulous pictures.

Andrea Gold's Blog is always a pleasure to stop by. She has the most amazing templates.

Gunhild Storeide's Blog is awesome. She has some great freebies you can play with.

Racketty Scrappety has a great blog and awesome templates, tons of them!!!

Shauna's Blog has some more great templates and inspiration!

Trish H Designs has some great templates too. I just love her designs.

The Meadow has some great layouts in her Old school challenge that I thought were fantastic.

Valerie Ostrom has some lovely layouts to inspire you.

Okay, that is just a very few blogs that I fregquent when possible. I hope that will help you and maybe help me with some inspiration for new layouts!
