Inspiration Challenge #1

About the challenge: This 2 week challenge (Ends Sep 9th) invites you to think about a layout from a different point of view. While normally we look at our photographs or a particular kit and get our inspiration from them, these challenges will provide you with a particular thought or phrase to scrap about.

For my first challenge, I have chosen a favorite quote to inspire you. Just for participating, you will receive a set of 6 inspirational Word Art quotes.

You can use any color, any kit, and any subject matter that you like for this challenge but you must include a full credit that includes the Designer Name and Kit name in the comments. Please do not put links to other sites in your credits, it gets too messy. Also please in your description in the gallery include your thoughts on the quote and how it inspired your layout.

The quote is: "We don't stop playing because we grow old; We grow old because we stop playing."

Here is my layout: http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=890&limit=recent

Please post your layouts to the Inspiration Challenge Gallery here: http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=530

The Participation Prize is:

Isn't it great how one quote can lead to so many different ideas? I think this quote fits so many different people in this world, I love those kinds of people too because they always know how to have fun and really enjoy their time here on earth. I hope you are feeling inspired not just by the quote, but by the memories and thoughts that are coming to mind when you ponder this challenge.

lol it's all good, Terrell and Lori, I KNOW how busy you are :) And I am just hoping that you have had time to at least think about this challenge. I feel that sometimes we are inspired even when we are too busy to show it :)

I am learning a lot about everyone who participates in this challenge. It's interesting because we all have taken the challenge differently, but we all have SOMEONE in our lives that fits this quote to a tee. It is so neat to learn about those folks.

Joba, your reply is just fine. It puts it all in order whether you hit reply at the main thread or at someone else's post under the main thread...

Everyone else... we are at 15 entries! I appreciate everyone's willingness to share in this inspirational challenge. I hope you are all appreciating the little fun moments you are scrapping and realizing that it's never too late to really take life by the horns and ENJOY IT!

Keep those entries coming! I am loving every single one of them!

Yay! I squeeked in here just in time! I saw the quote and knew immediately who to scrap! My DH's Great Aunt, who is going to be 73 in October, gets up every morning and does her Aerobics with Denise Austin! She lives next door to us and just loves to come out and play with the kids! You can usually find her weeding her garden, mowing her lawn, or just cleaning up the yard! She is so active and healthy, a great inspiration!

Here is my LO:

WOOHOOO this contest is now closed. I will be sending a PM to everyone with the participation prize in the next couple of days, just wrapping a few things up.

The next round will start next weekend.

Also, I would like to encourage any of you who made a layout for this challenge: Please, go look at the other entries, leave a comment, and savor all of these wonderfully inspirational people that have been highlighted in each of these layouts. It is always wonderful to see the different styles and "takes" on a quote... but I think all of you had a common theme: You used this as an opportunity to recognize the inner youth and spunk in a special person from your life.

Thank you for sharing.
