mojo, where for art thou?

I don't know what it is, but I just have this lack of creativity. Everytime, I sit down to try and scrapbook, I can't! I don't know if it's because I'm tired after working all day, because my time is very limited, I don't feel original...I think it's all of these things. Maybe, it's just because I have too much stuff and I don't know what I have anymore! Oh, and a lack of inspirational photographs... grrr

Cards... lately I feel like I've enjoyed making these more than layouts... maybe because they're small and take less time?

Maybe I shouldn't force it...I've taken an 18 month hiatus before. I often wonder if I enjoy shopping for pretty things more than actually scrapbooking!

Anyways, I'll share a layout I did a couple months back, just because I want to share one. ;) It's always an interesting challenge to use a diecut paper made for 12x12 scrappers, when you're an 8 1/2 x 11 scrapper!

Maaaaybe I should challenge myself to do a 12x12 layout and see if that helps? But...I'd have issues of it not conforming with the rest of my books...holy OCD! lol

Here is a card. I think they're fun. I no longer feel like I'm wasting supplies making cards. Maybe, I should tone it down on the sticker alphas though and use my QK or Sizzix alphas. They're replenishable. I rather save my stickers for layouts, if I ever make one again! (K, I've done layouts recently I'm just not ever happy with them anymore!)

Maybe this card needs a greeting... I dunno! I love using regular sewing pins through ribbon!

I really love that layout!!! Love the pic the colors etc...
The card is great as is. But if you must put a title maybe you can add "Thinking of You" or "Hello" "Hi" etc...

I agree with Joce. The card is perfect the way it is.
