What He Sees - and a BLOG HOP!

If you are here for the blog hop, you probably came from Fabi's Blog. WELCOME to my little piece of the world.

If you are starting here, you might want to go back to Nancy's Blog to get started. You don't want to miss a thing.

Remember the beautiful INSPIRATION kit from SFTIO?


Its SO amazing! You could WIN it! Read on:

My final layout for the Scrapbooking From The Inside Out Kit - INSPIRATION kit is one about my favorite inspiration - my kiddos.

I'm in the habit of handing my cell phone to Jayden when we are in a public bathroom. It keeps him occupied looking at pictures while I finish my business...its a good way to keep him from opening the door and just waltzing out without me and also from crawling on the floor to another stall.

Upon occasion, when he's particularly rambunctious and I have few resources to occupy him, I will hand him my phone to busy himself...like when he's in the cart on a long grocery trip.

In an effort to clear off my phone so that it would cease freezing up, I found some awesome pictures, taken obviously by my son. I was inspired to find HIS camera and take a look as well. I love to see what he sees.

It certainly brought up in me a desire to be better. Better at EVERYTHING...because I know he is watching:


This layout is totally a stretch...I was looking for an alternative to my usual 12 by 12 background...an unsuqare background. I like how it turned out. I might try this approach again.


I'm really a huge fan of those Journal Sprouts from Jillibean Soup. I could think of a hundred ways to use them!

Have you ever unexpectedly come across photos taken by somebody else or a photo you didn't remember and been fascinated and inspired? What about what others see in you inspires you? Did you ever think of Scrapping it?

Now, for the chance to win this wonderful kit. Simply leave me a comment, and then head on over to Patty (aka Colored Sprinkle Girl) for the next step on the hop.

Winners for the kit will be chosen from ALL the comments on each blog. So, the more comments you leave, the better your chances of winning.

The hop ends at the Scrapbooking from the Inside Out blog, where we'll announce the winner of the kit on Thursday March 24 at 5:00 PM PST.

Happy Hopping and Peace, ya'll!
