    I'm going to be linking you up with some great URLs for inspiration... you're sure to get inspired!

    Do you prefer Ad Inspiration? I know I do!

    Ads of the World is a great source for ads

    Or you could use this fun app my cousin showed me for the iPhone or iPad
    Catalogue

    You can download all sorts of catalogs to your iphone or ipad and then screen capture the pages for inspiration!

    Do you know how to screen capture from your iPhone or iPad?

    Simply hold down the power button at the top and the nav button on the front/bottom at the same time and you'll hear the click as it grabs a capture of your screen!

    That's okay but do you see where to add a new gradient that's in the download? or create a new color gradient

    I agree, the visuals are definitely a bonus when chatting this way!

    (I'm in northern CA too... think I'll start a "bath time" page with pic that was taken less than an hour ago! )

    And did you know that you don't have to use iPhone to download photos from your iPhone or iPad?

    Being someone who takes thousands upon thousands of pictures I've come to curse iPhoto... it just can't handle me

    I use Image Capture... it came on my mac and allows you to just copy the images to your hard drive. I'm sure there's something similar for a PC

    That sounds easy enough! I think Apple just tries to suck you in to all their apps by making iPhoto default and made me think I had no other choice... oy! But google is my friend and I got frustrated enough to figure out I had options

    For some random inspiration there's always Pinterest... you could get lost there

    I have a board where I pin some of my favorite collage inspiration:
    collage things

    I just started a new board for some of my magazine clips
    Magazine Clips

    Here are some favorite boards I'm following:
    Kelli Crowe is amazing--lots of good boards to follow including this one:
    Things I want to make & inspiration for making things

    Kristina Proffitt has some great color pins:
    color combo.

    Jennifer Steff has pinned some great scrapbook inspiration:
    Scrapbook Goodness

    April Elcich has a great vintage style:
    Paper

    our own Kayleigh has a great Scrap Inspiration Board
    scrap inspiration

    And DesignerDigitals is getting started on Pinterest too
    Digital Scrapbooking (digitalscrap) on Pinterest

    Hi Everyone! I am hoping to play along as I'm chasing a baby around. There's definitely no snow here but that could be my inspiration! LOL

    Then there's Polyvore.com
    new to me but even my daughter says she's known about it for years
    She describes it as somewhere people make creepy dolls but I found some great scrap inspiration there

    No.38 iane von Fürstenberg - Polyvore

    Natural beauty - Polyvore

    Look beyond the fashion accessories they are using as elements and just think about placement and the way your eye follows through these pages and start from there to get inspired!
