This month's kit at Studio Calico is amazing – one of my faves so far!! And…. once you combine all of the yummy scrapbooking goodies with some of my favorite Maya Road Maya Mists, I am one happy girl!!

Here are my layouts:

Feeling very inspired by the amazingly and super talented Dina Wakley lately. On one hand I love clean, simple straight designs, but then there is another part of me that loves the messy, artistic, unperfect side of it all and Dina rocks it out every time she creates. I am always inspired by her creations and love seeing her scrapbook layouts and her art journals. In fact I am dying to take her Masterful Art Journaling class. Now that school is starting I am hoping to get organized again and am hoping that things will settle down enough for me to do the class (that is before my crazy busy fall photography season starts.) The last class is already over but I believe you can still buy the class and just do it on your own at your own pace. I would love to have a whole class full of inspiration from Dina… I just know it would be so inspiring! If you haven't seen her blog you must check her out!! (I know… I am all gaga over Dina today! 🙂 And she did not ask me to post about her, I just wanted to give her a little shout out because I "heart" her work! Thanks for being so inspiring Dina!!)
