Muse? *updated post 9 - title help needed*

My muse has left ... I haven't completed a layout since June 2nd ... :eek:

In a rut ... even scraplifting isn't working to get me going - and I have a guilt-free scrap night tonight (dh is golfing) ...

Anyone want to inspire me with something?

if i can get the girls in bed b4 i crash i will! reorganizing scrap stuff and rediscovering things...

my suggestions are looking at word art (my latest muse) or take some digi pics and see if they inspire... you've got a really good subject!

Looking at word art is a great idea. I often start with titles and then find pics to go with them. May sound backwards but it gets me going.

I totally understand what you mean. I've not been able to really sit down and focus on scrapping and I really wanted to get my Disney album done. I told DH and he said to just save all the embellishments for when we take her one day and do one then!!! HMMMMM... he may be on to something.

Hope you get your mojo stirring!

If it makes you feel any better I haven't done ANYTHING since the crop. Sad UGH, I'm in the same boat.

Same here. I am so uninspired lately! Too nice outside, too busy organizing closets and the basement, blah, blah, blah. I did clean out and organize my scrapbooking area hoping that would get me going, but no luck. Sad

I just packed up my stuff for a crop on Friday. When I come home from the crop, I need to get rid of the stuff I won't use, and add in glue, stamp pads, and stickles (which I don't need for Friday because they're available at the crop). I have a paper case with all the scrap paper I'm trying to use up. A small square tote with my stamps, and a shoulder bag with ribbon, my sketches, cutters, stickers, eyelets and eyelet setter, brads, blank cardstock and some full sized color pages (for swap cards). I wish I could have fit the scrap paper into the shoulder bag. But now I want to pull it all out and play with it which is nice since I haven't been inspired and didn't even scrap during the VC.

Are you getting any scrapping done tonight?

I have photos placed into a layout and I think I picked the kit I'm going to use, but that's as far as I've gotten in the 2 hours I've been sitting here! Wink

I'm trying ... I've started and then closed 2 layouts ... on my third, it's coming together but I need a title for it ... it's a picture from 9 months ago, and I really don't remember that Kaitlyn looked that way ... so I want something about how time goes so fast, or ... something like that ... "9 months later" was my first thought, but I don't want a 'now' picture ... although maybe I can change it so it has a now picture and call it that?

*sigh*

Any suggestions?

Hmmm..."how quickly you've grown" was the first thing that popped into my mind, but I'm not sure that's really what you're trying to say. I get what you mean, but I'm having trouble putting it into words, too! I'll keep thinking.

Her eyes really seem to pop out in that picture, so I'd say something about her big blue eyes and pink dress.

Love the quote!

Sorry I didn't join you last night... got the girls to bed and sat down to scrap and the power went out. :roll: Could have scrapped if I hadn't just taken all of my "stuff" off of the laptop and onto the EHD - which needs electricity to run!

That's a great quote Mish! I finished it before I saw it, but I'm going to use that on another page Smile
