I love a challenge!

I have 10 stories planned to tell on 10 of my up and coming layouts.
I have some brand new beautiful pieces of paper and cardstock.
I have some gorgeous embellishments and rubons - even some that haven't hit the stores here yet that were a gift from my dear friend, Severine
... but what was lacking was the inspiration.

So, I remembered seeing a gorgeous layout by the talented Amanda Hall. And I recalled Nicole Southworth from the Remember When Blog saying to scrap your childhood memories. I even had Severine Di Giacomo challenge me last night to use the following on a layout - circles, chipboard and 2 pieces of patterned paper. It all fell into place today and I love the result. Thank you so much girls for the much needed inspiration - what do you think?

love your LOs, [and amandas], but was so funny seeing this, as today I was scrapping photos of my sister and I when we were little, and was thinking of the stories I would journal.One of my most vivid memories is of me being so in love with barbies,[i was soo girly] they were my most treasured things in the whole wide world, and my sister was a total tomboy, who collected matchbox cars and was so not into barbie.For her to play barbies with me I would have to endure playing matchbox cars!![ugh].One day she decided the barbies would look better with shorthair, so she got real bloody scissors and cut their hair short!!Needless to say I was absolutely devastated, and tried valiantly to put their locks back on with sticky tape!! anyway was so funny thinking of this today, and then reading your LO about cutting barbies hair!!
