Hop To It Challenge #8
Just a disclaimer, I did look for mine, as I know I've shared it online before, but couldn't find it in the files on this computer. I have one more place to look, but I'm gonna get this post up without it at this point. WHAT!? Why the next challenge of course. (insert evil laughter here) You know we all started scrapbooking somewhere. I, myself, started 14 (14?!) years ago at a Creative Memories crop - I suspect a lot of us started there. Back when there was nothing out there. Really. Nothing. But I cranked out pages and was amazed - sticker-sneezed, cardstock corners and all. My how far things have come. As great as those pages were then, they don't so much stand up now. They may in fact elicit a cringe and hearty laughter; the what was I thinking kind of laughter. Inspiration can be found anywhere. Anywhere. (evil chuckle here) Even on our first pages. So, dig out the first page you did and find something on it that inspires you to create another layout; could be the colors you used, maybe punches have you thinking of a new way to use them, the photo layout, clip art (yes, we had to resort to clip art at one time) makes you think of doodling again or even the stickers :). Be sure you link up both the original, first layout and the one you created. Now this isn't a REDO of the first layout - the first layout is inspiring your current layout. Now, if by chance the physical layout of your, well, layout isn't the inspiration your taking, here's a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays to help you move forward.
