I just knew, that all the thinking and photographing of Favorites back in August, would be food for my scrapbook pages for months to come; in fact I made this one below after only three days of capturing – and I can feel a few more coming along as the fall sets into a new winter.
This first part of September have been rather busy as it always is when everything starts back up again. Lots of good conversations and plans in the making at work, though and lots of photos to share and memories to capture on digital (and traditional) scrapbook pages as the light day time gets shorter and the dark evenings gets longer here in the north. I’m so glad for belonging to a couple great Creative Teams and I get plenty of inspiration for my scrapbook pages from my fellow team members. Love that.

I have a favorite place to sit down. It’s the front step on the farm house back home. It brings back so many good memories from both my childhood and adult life. It makes me feel calmer and more at peace.
I’ve been sitting here talking with friends or members of our family more times than I can count. I’ve been sitting here in the morning with my coffee and a book, happy for a little time on my own. I’ve been sitting here in the summer as the sun sets behind the mountain, enjoying the last few rays of sunshine. I’ve been sitting here gazing down over our fields, just letting the thoughts wander.
Today I barely had time to sit down and make MT take a photo of me before it got too dark. But I’ll be back one of these days preferably with a cup of coffee in my hand or a book to read. Trying to grab what’s left of the summer feeling. [August 2011]
This time I used products from this month’s Digi Files, from The Daily Digi. I’ve been a follower of the site since it launched and love all the great information found there as well as the new products available each month. I’m now on the creative team for the site, and love it there!
If you want to get to know the owner, Steph, a little bit better you can listen to an interview she did with Tim Conley of the Foolish Adventure, or you can listen to the digi podcast she produces, The Digi Show. I love that show and can’t wait for new shows starting next week Feels like I’m talking to some good old friends about the passion we all share for scrapbooking. Off course, they can’t hear me talking to them, but still, I share plenty of laughs with them non the less.
So, where do you go for inspiration to feed your passion?!
