I have been off the board for over a week. My family from Oregon came for a visit, and it was a busy week! Now that I can get back to scrapping, I find I am at a loss as to what to scrap! I have lost my mojo and can't find it! I keep checking into the board to get inspiration, and have seen some beautiful pages, but I simply cannot get it into gear! I think I am a little down since my family went back to Oregon. Ho hum...

Well, you should have come back with them-- then you could visit me and we could scrap. ;)
A simple way to get back some mojo is to scraplift. Pick one of those layouts in the gallery that you love and use it for inspiration. You can copy the placement of photos and embellishments, the colors, the theme or even the style- even copy it. ;) Just give the original artist credit in your description. :)

I hate it when I can't find the mojo!! I try browsing in the gallery and do a scraplift. Maybe there are photos from the recent visit you would like to scrap?

When my mojo is missing, I use sketches, templates and JIF6 pages to get me going again. Maybe you could go to the fabric store and get some inspiration by looking at all the pretty fabric. Or, maybe just a walk in nature would help you out!

When I lose inspiration I like to break out a new collection or fun thing I haven't used before (then again, I'm a shopoholic so any excuse to shop, lol). Maybe you could do something totally different like:

Pick a word out of the dictionary and make a layout about it.
Scrap about a color (orange=energetic, yellow=sunshine, red=summer watermelon)
Do a layout about a vacation you'd like to take or a dream you'd like to one day fulfill.

Just some ideas :)
