Celebrate Beginnings (Etsy Inspired Challenge #78)

Hello (and welcome if you're new to my blog)! :) This week's Etsy Inspired Challenge had me so filled with ideas that I didn't know where to start! I was really inspired by all the beautiful colors in our featured shop this week, Fantasy Art of Maigan Lynn. Maigan is so talented and there is so much detail to her paintings. I was also inspired by the great products our sponsor, Glue Arts, gave me to try...I wanted to create a bunch of different projects just so I could try all the different adhesives out! :)

But, for today I am just going to share one of my projects...a layout using the Making Memories Flutter collection. Having two boys, my layouts rarely have a feminine feel/colors but Maigan's shop inspired me! :)

I still have a few details to add to this layout like some journaling and maybe an extra embellishment or two but I thought it was still completed enough to share. Plus I was really proud of the folded fan flower I created so I just couldn't wait! :)

Our wedding was beautiful and I have always wanted to document some of the little details that made it extra special. We were lucky enough to celebrate the beginning of our marriage on a gorgeous summer day, at a beautiful venue, surrounded by family and friends...it was a wonderful way to start our married life together.

Consider documenting an important beginning in your life...it will be a wonderful thing to look back on later to see where that moment has taken you and how it has changed your life.

For this layout I used Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro and let me tell you it is fabulous! (Please note that I did receive this product for free...however the opinions I am expressing would be the same if I had bought this product.) I have NEVER been a tape runner kind of gal. I love my glue and always had problems whenever I would try an adhesive runner. Until now. The Glue Glider Pro is easy to hold, easy to roll, and easy to replace the cartridges. When I first saw it in my scrapbook store I was interested in purchasing it but decided not to because I thought it would be like all the adhesive runners I had problems with in the past but I was so wrong. So if you are a glue gal like me but want to give an adhesive runner a try, I would highly recommend the Glue Glider Pro from Glue Arts. It is way faster and less sticky than using glue too! :)

Okay now you know with the Etsy Inspired Challenges we always have some great prizes you could win if you play along. This week you could win 3 beautiful 4x6 prints from Maigan Lynn's shop or a great prize pack from Glue Arts (which does include the Glue Glider Pro!)

All you have to do is find your own inspiration from Maigan Lynn's shop, create a project based off that inspiration and link it up to the Etsy Inspired Blog (challenge#78) by Friday at noon! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I'm sure these lovely ladies have some great inspiration for you today too!
Have a wonderful weekend!

BEAUTIFUL Kerry! That fan flower is amazing and you should be proud! :-) What a great way to document such a wonderful day! You both look so happy! And doesn't the Glue Glider Pro ROCK?! I've had one for some time and it is basically the only adhesive I use!
