finding inspiration...

its funny how this layout was created and it started by chance when I saw this month sketch challenge over at MME.  Then digging into my MME stash, I found that I had purchased some of their latest kraft collection but haven't had a chance to use them just yet... and then within in minutes, vola! had this done. don't you just love when everything just comes together and sometimes its all about having fun with the products and exploring your creatively...

the theme for the sketch challenge is "new" and for me, its having the opportunity to explore new places and experience different culture, like our long weekend in Lombok, Indonesia. especially here in this picture, we finally reached the main destination of our hike and simply was enjoying the waterfall in the background.

and don't you just love these embellishments, I couldn't resist piling a few pieces here...and was super excited when I saw that MME had these wooden sayings, at the moment I'm just crazy for all things wood and grab a few packs of these... also finally getting out those stamps that I've been collecting (these are also from MME - same collection)

I really do wish now that I had bought a few pieces of these pattern papers - both the white alphabet and flower sheets - just love the effect of the white one (especially when you stamp on it) and also the fun colors in this collection and how it contrast with the kraft color... oh, gotta to see if my LSS still have these...

Thanks for stopping by everyone!
