I can never get enough layout ideas and inspiration for scrapbooking. I am constantly on the lookout for new ideas, techniques, products and examples to make scrapbooking fun and to get my juices flowing.

We are back for another great Monday Layout Challenge, and this one is a fun one. I had a blast with last week’s challenge, and actually got about ten layouts done using some of my old stuff. It was great, and I found a whole bunch of new things to do with some of it.
With all the great trends in scrapbooking and fun products and supplies, this week I was focusing a bit more on that. I love scrapbooking related clothing, jewelry and gifts, not to mention I am on a major organization kick, so you can see where all this has come from.
With the change in the season, and the fall months upon us, I decided I would love to change purses to something that shows off who I am. I am a mom and a scrapbooker, first and foremost.
