If you’re anything like me, you have (embarrassing) collections of mementos and photos from school days, family events, and trips tucked away in closets, drawers and cupboards. I come across them from time to time and mutter “I really need to…” and then shove them back … More Introducing Project Life by Stampin’ Up!
Recently I’ve been cruising through a variety of challenge blogs. I’m not consistently participating in any particular challenge, but it seems that a good one really gets the creative process going. What makes a good challenge? Well, my simple definition is that when I look at it I’m inspired! Ha! Here’s my version of this … More Coffee and the ColourQ
