Hippity, Hoppity ... Easter's on its way!

Hello there! Now it's my turn to share some inspiration with y'all! I am sure you have TGIF on your mind - unless you are like me and you don't leave the house for work - therefore, the work never stops! Especially if you have small children - in which case any crafting happens at night after the laundry, dishes, picking up toys, clothes, etc. - you know the drill :)

And as busy as we all are, it's hard to sit down, relax, search our soul for inspiration. That's why girls from Inky Inspirations (a.k.a. Inkettes) are here for you! Yay! I've been (personally) struggling lately with my mojo (is that the word?) and been looking for inspiration - and what a better inspiration than my children? So, because we are on Spring Break (here in Georgia) I had plenty of time with my kids - and what a better way to spend it than with bonding/crafting. We inspire each-other !

Here is my lovely 5-year old's inspiration - She used the gorgeous Lili with Present she added few embellishments and voila - fabulous!

I, on the other hand, went with the Spring/Easter combo where I used the wonderful Lili's Egg Hunt image. What a dream to color her! I added sparkle & bling, chalked the edges with pearlescent blue and added the bow. The papers are from Imaginisce - Enchanted collection - paired with Pebbles' Ever After.

A lot of times, I inspire myself with a challenge, I have several "ideas" in my head during the day, but by the time I get to my craft room I forget them all, so I have this little note book that I carry around - yay! (light bulb!) New idea - next (when it's my turn again) I will show you tutorial how I made it - see! It's easy - peasy! So just sit (or stand - whatever you prefer), relax, and enjoy the ideas popping in your mind - but, you can always get A HUUUGE lot of inspiration right here, after all it's Inky Impressions Inspirational Blog.

Have a fabulous weekend!
