Welcome to 'Scrap-inspire'

As you may have noticed there hasn't been much scrapping happening over here with Furrypig! I have been a bit lacking in motivation, although I did manage the page shown here yesterday and I have another to show you tomorrow. But this is the only scrapping since October ...shocking!

I was chatting online to the mega talented K a couple of weeks ago and we thought we could try and encourage each other to scrap. This could be achieved by setting a theme, providing a sketch, trying out a certain style, or a challenge! Anything, as long as it encourages us to get out the photos, papers and journalling etc from our stash and create a page (or pages would be even better!!!)

So on the first of the month we are going to 'inspire' each other to create a Lay Out, thus the name 'Scrap Inspire' was born (I suspect from K as she is definitely the creative one!!!). So if you would like to join us, we would be pleased to have your company. K created the artastic banner which is amazing especially as she has managed to include pigs which I love! So if you join us, why not display it on your blog and come back and tell us what you have been inspired to do this month!

I am starting with a really simple sketch, quickly hand drawn by me earlier today when I realised I had to do something and get it posted on my blog! Please feel free to rotate it, flip it and use it in a way that works for you and your style, it is totally open to interpretation! I haven't decided yet quite how I am going to use it so it will be interesting to see what inspiration it provides this month.

Please post a link in the comments section if you do manage to make something with Scrap-Inspire by 31st March, I look forward to seeing what we all come up with (which will no doubt inspire me even further!!)
