Check out these Crafty Places!

Good Morning...I've been spending far too much time surfing the World Wide Web aka. www.

But luckily for you and me, I have found some great sites for inspiration, challenges (don't we all need some of those to get the fires a burnin') and layout and card maps!

You might have noticed the two links on the right column that
 I'm a Member of: Big Red Scraps & Let's Scrap...

Big Red Scraps is a site created by fellow Close To My Heart Consultant, Leisa Hubley, for sharing your Close To My Heart creations.  Big Red Scraps, Paper Creations using CTMH products is a searchable CTMH gallery site for everyone to share their CTMH artwork.
Isn't she the greatest for setting up a gallery for all of us to use?...on there you will find Consultant Artwork and Artwork by other CTMH fans...I love this site because it allows me to see what other creative ladies have done with stamp sets, colour combinations and paper collections...usually products that I have and sometimes I find it challenging to use everything I have in a new and different way...looking to this site often provides me just the right amount of inspiration to get creatin'. 

Check out Big Red Scraps now to just look around or become a member too and you can share your creations and be inspired!

I am also a new Member of Let's Scrap, it offers inspiration and support galore! Since joining two days ago, I've been IM'd by all of their DT ladies offering info and insight into this site...I think it just might be one of my newest favorite places to hang-out, share my Artwork and get inspired with all of their Weekly challenges...join as a member or just stop by to see what all the fuss is about...I hope you participate in the challenges and become a member so you can upload your Artwork for all of us to be inspired from too. 

When you are part of a scrapbooking community, no matter where you live, you are connecting with people that share the same interest as you...you'd be surprised with how great it is to talk to people you've never met before through some of these Scrapbooking Forums, sharing with others your common interests and tidbits of your lives is actually very rewarding. Whether you are meeting others in person, through Monthly Workshop Clubs (like mine :)) or through the World Wide Web...you're enriching your life through these connections and after all we are all Scrapin' Sisters and Brothers aren't we?
