Inspiration for my scrapbooking pages normally comes from everything around me. I love watching galleries like those on blogs and on 2peas. I've always said if inspiration doesn't hit, to find a layout you love, start to do your version of some small element on that layout and pretty soon you are away.
Aussie Scrap Source has been visiting different forms of inspiration and recently I completed an assignment to find an article or something in print as inspiration. This is the advertisment I chose.
