What inspires you to be the creator you are, what inspires your creativity, your goals dreams, what or who keeps you grounded. Think of a person, place, music, season, etc. Create something that inspires you. Along with who inspires you, use your favorite embellishments!  Check out what inspires our DT.

what inspire me? - colors ( especially pink, green and yellow ) and nature. I love to take photos. My favorite embellishments are chipboards, die cuts and embossing

(What inspires me are my two wonderful sons Riley and Harley, they are my world. My favorite embellishments I used are from the patterned papers themselves - fussy cutting them, I love doing this when ever I can)
(What inspires me are my three grandchildren, they are the loves of my life and the reason I am still cutting up and gluing down
(What Inspires us - Life, colours, beauty around)
Music has always inspired me to create. My favorite embellishments are metal, stones, lace and inspiring quotes.

Art has always inspired me; art of all forms. When feeling happy, when feeling down, creating art is truly the answer for me.  

(what inspires me are nature, colors and flowers )
I get inspiration from my family.
Taking pictures and making layouts of my loved ones is my passion and stress reliever:)
My layout is all about my passion for art. Art inspires me everyday!
My beautiful daughter always inspires me and I love creating memories for her to treasure in years to come!
My new inks Distress Oxide is my inspire just now. My favorite embellishments is thread, budges and text stickers.
My beautiful daughter always an inspiration.

Your challenge is to think Throwback. Something that suddenly reminds you of something in the past this could be in the form of throwback papers you have, embellishments, tools, throwback themed papers, colors, photos, memorabilia ANYTHING that will help you express any of your favorite past times. Whatever you choose have fun with it and think outside the box. Let's see what you got!  Here is some Design Team Inspiration for you and a little bit about what was used.  Make sure you participate in the challenge for this Month's prize!!!
(I decided to go back with my photo as well and use one from many years ago of my mum and dad. The papers were very old ones from my stash - G45 and Maja Designs. I decided to then go with old techniques that were being used on everything all the time when I first started scrapping - Fussy cutting, stickers and rubons.)
(I went way back and used one of my all time favorite collections from Crate Paper, which is the Maggie Holmes Collections.  I must have bought this collection three times!  For my favorite embellishments I used flowers and distressing, its a must for me!)
(We went back to a family holiday and used a picture from there; we used Gelatos and some dies that we've had in our stash since long)
Using old stickers I had for over 7 years (that didn't stick very well so had to glue on) and alcohol inks I hadn't used in over a year, on some old wood samples pieces.
Shabby Chic Wall Hanging made using vintage lace, fibers and flowers. 
I used to use a lot of dies cut out with my Big Shot Die Cut Machine. I also found my border punch I used to use a lot!
I remember when I started scrapping back many years ago and it was all about doilies, big buttons and rosette flowers! This is my modern take on this throw back challenge.
( I have used really old Kaiser Papers "Pennyroyale" for the large Damask Patterns and matching brads as they were very popular a few years back)
When I start crafting 2007 I made a lot of cards. And my favorite materials was buttons and Basic Grey papers. And of course I used those on this work. 
I used some throwback themed papers that includes old typewriters, cameras, travel themed items and old journal paper.  I also used a photo that took a while back after wearing these as a kid, they are back.  I also love things that are vitnage and old so I kinda used this in the layout. Vintage looking papers that are actually a couple of years old. 
Thanks so much for stopping by.  This month's challenges are sponsored by Let's Get Sketchy!  Please make sure you link  up to the right!
