Feeling Stuck? Get Inspired!

I think as crafters, we all go through those non-inspired or blah moments where we just don't feel like doing anything.  We all have different ways of dealing with these times.  Some people just like to take a break, others try a different medium or hobby, and some just push through.  I am the push through type.  If I feel a road block in my Scrapbooking, I look for inspiration in Galleries, color schemes, new products I might have, and instead of doing pictures that I feel need to be scrapped, I choose the pictures I want to scrap.

With all of that said, one of my new favorite places to find inspiration is Pinterest.  If you haven't heard of it, I suggest checking it out.  It is your-one-stop spot to keep inspiring ideas, to do ideas, favorite recipes, favorite styles...the ideas are endless!  And be careful, because it can be a little addicting too!  

The ladies at Club CK have gotten on the Pinterest bandwagon also and they had an awesome challenge for their Premium Members this week.  They offered several photos found on Pinterest for us to use as inspiration for our layout.  Here are some of the pictures they gave us to choose from:

I decided to use the first photo as the inspiration for my layout. I LOVED the colors in the picture, the natural look of everything, and the different textures that were included.  So here is my layout based on the photo:
