The Good News just keeps coming! This week our Guest Girl is Rebekah Robinson. She is a regular participant here at IIM and we love her! She is also a published scrapper, a beautiful scrapper and most importantly a super friendly scrapper. Her pages have a way of being bold & girlie at the same time. Her bright photography always inspires me to focus on quality head shots and we are so happy she's sharing with us this week! She is regular at 2Peas and ScrapbookHeaven, search "RebekahR" to chat it up with her. Thanks Rebekah!!

By Rebekah:

She was inspired by her window & its decor. She mimicked the diamond shape & added flourish accents just as her vine decoration accents her window.

By Rebekah:

Her scrap room curtains & lamp shade are both designed in black & white with fun pom pom trim. Her page, a personal story of her own, was inspired by room. She added black & white atop a tan background just like her room.

By Vicki:

She used the rich texture & pattern of her curtains as inspiration for mixing strips of differing patterns. This page is of Vicki's niece Neely from the band Tilly & the Wall. They make really cool music! They were on the premier episode of 90210 last night! Comment if you saw them, share with us what you thought. Congrats Tilly & The WALL!

From Jill: (She is master of words, this description is straight from the source.)

"I started observing these "blah" items closely, and realized that little beauties can be found in the most surprising places. Take the curtains that I used for my inspiration this week (see pic). Boring cream-colored curtains, right? Not quite. The more I looked at them, the more I noticed the vintage-y feel and the charming scallops and the lovely lacy edging. It's crazy to think that these have been in my house for years, and I've never really given them a second look."

Beautiful photo & layout Jill! Perfect example of what I Inspire Me is all about!

By Aime:

Unassuming 5 panel wooden door? Maybe. But it inspired this page of Aime's that is so beautiful I first thought it was created digitally. With paint and some great imagination she made a page full of motion & interest to capture her daughter's super-hero energy.

By Lana:

"I do love my door. It lets in tons of light & the curving pewter coordinates with our modern decor. But the tiny red flowers reflected through the glass are always catching my eye when I walk by. I used the colors & reflection theme as inspiration for this page about how I've grown up myself and now have a daughter who looks so much like me when I little.

By Cat:

Also inspired by her door, she used the square glass blocks as a pattern for her design. She layered papers for a shabby chic look but kept everything in a small area, always framing her photo making it the main focal point of this cool page.

By Christine:

She was inspired by both her front door (pictured in the actual layout) and her dining room drapes. She mimicked the curtain folds by using Amy Butler Fabric and pleating it behind the photo. Great idea Christine!

By Sasha:

This window isn't from her own home but Sasha loved it all the same. It was taken from her hotel stay during a San Fransisco, CA trip. It is beautiful piece of architecture that lent itself so well pulling textural details into her page; the stitched border, the mellow yellow color, the retangular grid of photos & the top flourish.

From Lana:

I made these curtains myself for my daughters' room. I adore the bright colors and "patchwork" pattern trimmed in white feathery cuteness.

By Donna:

She pulled from the fun colors, vertical stripes and blue gem accents to create this digi page. The curtain tie back was inspiration for the floral flourish positioned 2/3 down the page. Great sketch Donna!
