{52 Inspirations} Week Thirty One

So I started working backwards AND forwards this week on 52 Inspirations! I don't want to get further behind, so I'll be working on the current week's kits as well as working on the early kits to get caught up.

So Week 31 was designed my Vicki Stegall, and I have to admit- I couldn't resist re-coloring one of the papers to charcoal grey, because yellow and grey is one of my FAVORITE combinations! So without further ado....

The kit/inspiration:

{52 Inspirations} Week Two

This week's inspiration was about life inspired. I'm inspired to live a better life every day just by looking at Jules' sweet face. So I kept this week pure and simple.

Here's the kit:

And my layout:

{52 Inspirations} Week One

So here is the kit from Week One:

And here's my layout using this kit:

52 Inspirations

So this past weekend I stumbled across something called "52 Inspirations" from

It's basically a one year subscription where you receive a new digital mini kit full of inspiration for the scrapping a layout that week. I really needed this inspiration because it's August and I've done hardly ANY scrapping this year, which equals lost memories of Jules that I "think" I will remember, but 20 years from now I won't. So I signed up for the subscription, and will be working to get caught up! We are currently on week 31, and I'm just starting, but hey- who doesn't love a challenge? :-)
