Unity Stamp Company's Inspirational Blog Hop!

Its finally here! You should have arrived here from the uber-talented Shemaine's blog. If not head back to the Unity Stamp Co. blog and follow the trail. (if you get lost or find a link that isn't working you can always check the list here - there is so much amazing talent I don't want anyone to get missed!)

So without further ado here is my addition to this amazing blog hop!

Stamps: Bubble Gum Tree ; words Grow and Magnificent were part of the awesome grab bag.
Ink: Stazon
Paper: Hambly overlay, Cloud 9 Designs, K&Co, Websters Pages, Bazzill, Stampin Up
Embellishments: diecut butterfly (from like 9 years ago!) and Stickles
Tip: The magnificent stamp actually looked like this:

To mask the decorative and keep just the word I used scotch tape over the pieces I didn't want inked, inked it up and then removed the tape quickly before stamping. That way I didn't need to worry about trimming out the word and had it perfectly aligned on the paper instead of possibly not having enough edge around it.

Now hop on over to Katie C's blog - I know you'll find some fantabulous inspiration there!!
Oh and I just recently found this quote that really struck me... I'm sure you'll see it on a project soon!

"When you walk to the edge of all the light you have
and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown,
you must believe that one of two things will happen:
There will be something solid for you to stand upon,
or, you will be taught how to fly."

I rearranged my scrap space

So I haven't been crafting much. We had a 2 week spring break so I took the time to sort, purge and reorganize. I got an armoire from my brother that works perfectly for my scrap area. I just need to get an Ott light to put inside the cabinet so I can see colors more clearly when working.

Where oh where has my mojo gone?

I think there is a black hole sucking the creativity ... either that or having a house full of sickies has stolen my mojo. Next week is spring break and I am spending the week reorganizing my scrap stuff so hopefully that will help. I did get a few scrappy things done this last week though!
