Unstuck With Roundabout

I had free time on Sunday and was determined to scrap.  But I had no motivation or inspiration for anything creative.  I purged my paper stash for most of the day and even seeing all that pretty paper left me cold.  But I was determined - a free day is rare.

So I pulled out my Roundabout kits (they are all mixed up in an oversized ziplock bag) and looked at them.  Still nothing.  Then I pulled out my pile of photos to scrap.  And my stash swap pictures made me smile - finally a start.

Then I looked at my challenge/inspiration notebook.  There was a layering challenge in the Oklahoma benefit crop, a sketch at the My Scraps and More sketch blog, and a My Scraps and More Got Talent mini challenge - use 3 stamps.  Could I put them all together?  That seemed to be enough inspiration to get me going.

I used the sketch as a starting point for my basic layout design.  (Of course, my layouts never look like the sketches, but they still get me started.)

And each photo block had five layers, meeting the terms of the Oklahoma benefit crop layering challenge.

And I used two word stamps and two arrow stamps on my layout.  (I never use my stamps, so this was a major accomplishment.

And I liked the finished product - maybe not one of my all time favorites, but still, I liked it.  I'd love to know how you get unstuck - please leave a comment and let me know. 

Hope your Monday is simply marvelous!
