Look to the world around you for inspiration

When I scrapbook I like to look to the world around me, and like many, I've been addicted to Pinterest lately. That addiction inspired me to create a vintage style page with a corkboard "pinned" with photos of some favorite finds taken during a few junkin' adventures. I also love the idea of "diamonds and denim" and wanted to mix textures that were blingy and fabulous, with other embellishments that had more of a simple everyday feeling. With all of that in mind I set out to create this page.

JB Mini Summer Album

I ran across a Maya Road Chipboard mini album while cleaning my scraproom. I had some Jillibean left and so I came up with this cute little summer album.
