This post is the eighth in a two-week series of daily posts where I'm sharing my recently created layouts along with the inspiration that prompted me to create them. I tend to think that I always start with a photo when I scrapbook, however as I looked back through a recent batch of layouts, I realized that the inspiration to sit down at my craft table and create a layout comes from many different sources.
The photos from Easter Sunday last year were the initial inspiration for this layout. I pulled some coordinating papers and embellishments to go with them and created a kit to take to my crop earlier this month. At the crop, one of the other ladies was giving away her copies of PageMaps and PageMaps 2! I really like using sketches, so I nabbed those from the giveaway table the first day. I found a sketch in one of them that I used as the starting point for this 2-page layout. Another lady had gifted each of us with a small Ziploc bag filled with punched butterflies in a variety of colors - some of which you can see scattered across this page.
How about you? Do you like to scrap events and holidays?
