I really like having the inspiration that comes from the challenges here… and sometimes it is the REALLY random ones that help. I also like to see what other people do with the same challenge. I really enjoy the Anything Goes Challenge (I even got to help in June and guest host in July). AGC is taking a break… but I like the daily inspiration! SOOOO… for the month of February I am once again doing a Daily Inspiration Challenge. You do not have to officially sign up… just join in when and if you can. You do NOT have to post on the exact day… you don’t have to do all… you don’t have to do ANY… just come be inspired have fun!

*** I am working full time, mom of a 3 and almost 5 year old and taking 7 credit hours in a completely online program for my Masters in Library! Be patient with me! ***
I had to do February because my son and I both have birthdays this month!

Each day/week I will post a prompt(s) to get us thinking outside the box… I think this challenge works best for LO and cards… but any projects are welcome (yes, digital too!). I will probably post each challenge the night before. (I may even post a couple ahead of time the week school starts… I work as a library/ tech aide in an elementary school). This month since I am one month into my masters program… I will probably post a few at a time so I don’t get too far behind. Also… I am not even going to ATTEMPT to pick weekly “winners”, however please if you post make sure you visit a couple of the other participants LO and leave some love! No better prize than having someone admire your work!

February 3 - The Day the Music Died - If you don’t get this reference do some research! Be creative with your use of the theme!
“A long long time ago I can still remember how That music used to make me smile And I knew if I had my chance That I could make those people dance And maybe they'd be happy for a while
But February made me shiver With every paper I'd deliver Bad news on the doorstep I couldn't take one more step
I can't remember if I cried When I read about his widowed bride Something touched me deep inside The day the music died”

Day 2 seems to be popular - here's mine! I partially matted my photos because I already had black scraps cut to these sizes and didn't want to cut into a new sheet of black. I actually like the way they turned out.

For 2/9, my "747" is 7 patterned paper strips, 4 daisies, and 7 butterflies. I guess technically I also have 4 buttons, but since they are part of the daisies, I think they count as a unit, right?

This is for Daily 15 - Susan B Anthony - This project was made for my swap partner CDJohnson. Kuddos to her for being a nurse and always helping people and taking time for herself to enter various runs.

Our theme for Dawna's Mixed Media Swas is trash to treasure. Took a paint stick from our house remodel and covered it with TH Distress Crayons. The curling ribbons are from presents and I used them to symbolize the paint powder as it's sprayed on runners. I also used trim from old card to make her socks and waistband. The Color Run is on my bucket list and of course Cheryl enters all sorts of Runs.

Lisa, that's really funny! I remember commenting on your layout, so maybe the paper choice stuck in my mind and guided me in making my own choice. It's always cool to see how different people use the same supplies, too.

One more for me. For World Radio Day, 2/13, I used the song title "Under the Sea" from The Little Mermaid. This might be my last layout for the month, although I was going through my stash today and found a full sheet of lightbulb paper, which I would love to use for 2/11, Thomas Edison's birthday, if only I could figure out how!

Last one for February. I happen across some light bulb paper in a box my neighbor had given me when she moved, and I knew I had to use it for 2/11, Thomas Edison's birthday! Took me a moment to think of it, but it seemed like a perfect fit for red ribbon week because "Bright kids don't do drugs!"
