Lasting Memories Challenge 53 - Who or What Inspires you???

Happy Sunday all!  It's time for another challenge at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges.  This is also the last challenge for the month of August if you are trying to qualify for the DESIGN TEAM.  Lots of entries so far and lots of different and unique styles out there.  So give it a TRY.  Karen is looking for 6 to 8 new DT members!  That is how I got on.  It's fun!  I've gotten more scrap layouts done than I probably would have otherwise.  Just join each challenge for the month of August and have all 4 entries linked up by Friday, September 2nd at NOON EST.  Good Luck!  You can see all the details HERE.

For this weeks LMCH 53, we are asking you to create a layout that shows WHO or WHAT inspires you most?

For me... my family and friends ALWAYS inspire me.  But as far as scrapbooking... I tend to be inspired by the "Together Memories" for my scrap layouts.  I have a ZILLION Christmas and Birthday pictures to scrap, because I tend to want to document those times that may only happen once and that not necessarily everyone in the world experiences.  It's our own memory.  So here on my layout... are photos of a five day snow storm that turned into an ice storm 3 years ago.  It's not every day that the kids miss 3 days of school in a row... the snow kept coming down and that a 7 foot snowman was built....AND that My Hubby just happened to have one of those days off of work.  He can drive in anything!  Even if it takes him 4 hours.  But this day.. .he got to stay home.  So as you can see... the left page is us playing at night... and the right page is continuing our snow fun during the day.  
We are curretnly enjoying 85 plus temps here... so SNOW is hard to imagine.  But I hope I cooled some of you off!  :-)

Karen also provided a SKETCH to help you get started.  But not required to use.

Come on over to Lasting Memories and show us who or what inspires you. Have a great day!!

Supplies:  Stampin' Up Simply Scrappin' Kit and Embellies from JOLEE's.  I have so many of these from before the Cricut was invented.  Not sure where my letter stickers are from... they were ones I had left over.

I love your layout. Great idea of scrapping those memories. I hate the thought of snow for 5 months, but love the first snow fall.
Great job.
I would be honored if you came to see my blog here
