AEzine Challenge: The Good Stuff

Essentials


I almost completely forgot what day it was today. I had lunch with my friend Tricia and we got a bit distracted at Old Navy and a couple other fun places.


The challenge from this week's AEzine went something like this: This week I want you to take a look at those "extras" that are truly delighting you right now and making you want to create. Make a list and then CREATE a layout that details your favorites. I love how people ended up making layouts about their essentials - very cool idea.


Fresh flowers are totally on my list of "good stuff" - I am all about tulips right now.


Can't wait to see what you guys did with this one.

    I love daffodils but also purple tulips.Spring bulbs always remind me of fresh beginnings.
    Here is my page LO for the Non Essential craft bits, the fun bits we use to create our pages.

    Here is mine: the LO isn't really ABOUT the supplies, but uses them and I talk about them in my entry. I haven't been able to scrapbook about scrapbooking yet. It still feels a bit silly. After seeing waht everyone has done though, I definitely feel inspired.
    Thanks Ali,
    Robyn

    Here is mine. I am on a transparency kick, and this was a different way of using it for me...stretching out the frame like this. Thanks for the inspiration.

    hi Ali! I put this album together using stuff that's fun to me right now....transparencies. I thought it was ironic that this album also has something from you in it...I saved the quotes from your happiness blog because I knew I wanted to use them to create a project..... thanks for all your inspiration! Patty :-)
