Just the inspiration to get something done

Have you ever wanted to do something so badly and just couldn't find the time to do it? That is what I have been going through the last couple of weeks. I have really been wanting to get some scrapbooking done and couldn't. The first reason is simple. My camera (Sony DSC-H55) is broken. It doesn't read my Sony memory stick cards anymore. Not at all. And although I can use a SD card (which I recently found out) I can't print any of the pictures at home that I want and need to sb.

But I found a few pictures that I had printed from 2010 before we moved from MN to AZ and I decided that it was time to get those pages done. The challenge on twopeas inspired me to get those pics on pages since I have been planning the page forever and just never did it.

So here is the page that I completed. My son's 14th Birthday page (and yes he will be 16 in December) but I love how it turned out. All the journaling has been moved since it was personal.

All the supplies used for this page are from my stash and are super old. Everything except the stamp used to make the date. I haven't purchase any scrapbooking supplies in forever. But I am hoping to get some new stamps and some adhesive. Which I haven't purchased adhesive since before moving to from MN. So I have had enough adhesive for almost 2yrs but then again I haven't done nearly as many projects/pages/cards as I would have been doing at any other time.

So that inspired me also to create something scrapbook related for my desk at work. I have to say that I am truly enjoying my job now. I feel so blessed to find a position that allows me to drive less that an hour to get to work. And honestly that was really starting to wear on me and our van. But here is what I created for my desk...

And I can't wait to put it on my desk tomorrow. Well I hope that you all got inspiration to do something scrapbook related soon.
