I't the first chalenge i'm in, so i hop i managed well. Here is my lo for this inspiration chalenge.


The water made me think of this photo our son took in his backyard. The buildingpit for his garage had turned into a pond after the rain. And these ducks came for a swim in it.

Stella, you've provided two "Inspiration" challenges for me this month! This one and the freestyle one, for me, were the same topic. I just love the ocean (as you've read with my submission for the freestyle challenge )! It just so happens that I love birds too! So this one was great for me, thank you.

Here's mine:

Here is my layout for the challenge! I love the beach and the ocean. I spent a lot of time playing at the beach near our home when I was a child. I also love the birds. And I had these photos of wild Canadian Geese that I just love. So I took my inspiration from the seagulls in your photo.

Here is my LO. Visiting my Dad last week we took a walk on the beach at Carlsbad, CA and snapped this picture. My inspiration from it was to write a verse.

Thank you so much for sharing your precious moments with us, Jan and Scrapgarden! What beautiful layouts you've shared! Expect a PM right away... ;)

Well, the truth is that the seagulls inspired me to scrap this photo, but it really ended up better fitting the Freestyle challenge!

I love your layouts, Ladies. I've just sent you all your Posting bonus, so give me a shout if you have any problems at all.

I've totally enjoyed being a part of your special worlds, and as I see that the month of April is nearly over, I hope you ALL will join me again for another round of Inspiration here at SAS' Inspiration Challenge.

I'm sorry I didn't answer right away on some of your posts/layouts, it's not out of deliberately ignoring you, believe me! I've been having serious internet issues, and they have been resolved for now. We'll see what next month brings!

Regardless of what's going on with me, I promise that no matter what happens, somehow, someway, I will get your well-deserved Posting Bonus to you eventually. So, please do not let my 'internet interruptions' be a deterrent to your creating and posting your beautiful layouts in this or my other Challenges, ok?

Sending you best wishes for a great weekend!

I had originally planned to dig out some beach or water scenes to use for this challenge, but my daughter recently sent me some snow pictures she had just taken (yes, it's still snowing in some places!) and one of them (the one in the top left of the LO) struck me as having the same feel as the inspiration photo even though it wasn't a beach! Hence I scrapped Sun River Snow (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=12716) for the challenge!

I was inspired by the sense of calm and relaxation of that beach picture. So I found a "relaxation" picture of my brother from a vacation a couple summers ago:
