I am sitting in the Ballroom of the Mariott Hotel in Brampton .... and just heard Stacy Julian speak at the OPW Retailer event. How lovely... its been a fabulous day so far. Seen lots of my Go Scrapping Retail Sponsors, met some fabulous other retailers and have had the opportunity to see and play with some new products from lots of great companies!! Gotta Love it.
I really enjoy going to these events. They are an opportunity to rejuvenate and be inspired!! Got lots of ideas to bring to the crops and retreat and the studio too!! Stacy talked, conveniently enough about creativity, inspiration and the like - how timely, huh??
Anyway.. I better go, lots more to see and do. I will post some pictures later.

Here is the 4th picture in the 4th picture file on my computer - A picture taken outside the arena at Police Officer Rob Plunkett's funeral (YRPD) My dad and sister knew and worked with Rob and my dad, at the time, was the drum major for the YRPD Pipe Band.

Thanks for the tag, Rosanne.
This picture is now hanging at the Studio. Feel free to drop by anytime to take an IRL peek!!

When I became a scrapbooker I started to look at life in general with a
different "eye" little things that I never noticed or appreciated before
inspired me - like a field of corn - a fall thunderstorm - our dogs just
relaxing on the carpet. So I guess my answer is that life inspires me and my
friends and peers help me along the way.
