Memory File Adventure continues..... INSPIRATION section

This is another part of my Memory File Adventure.  This section is based on who/what inspires me.  I am struggling with this part.  My mother definitely inspired me.  She was a very strong, loving, independent, supportive mother.  She passed away several years ago.  She still inspires me everyday, even though she's no longer with me.  She definitely deserves a page in this section.  The part I am struggling with is where to go from here.  I could do what/who inspires me creatively? What/who inspires me to be a better person? What/who inspires me in so many ways. 
I wanted to use this quote because it is so reflective of my mother.  She never, ever gave up in life and even with her illness.  She was always positive, upbeat and went wherever life took her without a complaint, without a tear and with great pride.

You will rarely see me use Prima flowers on my layouts.  I am not sure why, I like them when I see then on other people's layouts, but when I put them on mine, I just feel like they don't belong?  Do you have an item in your stash that you just can't seem to reflect your style with?  I gave it a shot here, but I am still not comfortable with them.


  1. Lorrie, I love the pages you did of your mom and what inspires you. I love the flowers to, although you may not like them much I think they look very pretty next to that beautiful picture of your mom.

  2. I think the flowers look great. Paint splatters are a trend that I like on other people's layouts, but not my own. Thanks for sharing this pretty layout!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Your comments are a special part of my day.
