Be Inspired – Start the day inspired

Jo Boland GoGo Getaway Be Inspired Challenge

Hello! Jo here with my Be Inspired challenge for the October GoGo Getaway. I was asked to choose an inspirational quote for my challenge and this came to mind, something I had pinned on Pinterest, ‘Start each day with a grateful heart’. My mind also jumped to something that I ‘need’ and am grateful for each morning, a coffee!

Jo's Inspirational Quote

We saw lots of fabulous scrapbook layouts go up on the Be Inspired challenge wall at the GoGo Getaway in Herfordshire, thank you if you participated!

Here’s some close ups of my layout…



I typed the quote into my Silhouette software (I used a free font called Ballpark) and sent it to cut. I backed it with red to make it stand out and stitched around the edge, then embellished the page with bits and pieces from my stash including chipboard hearts and a puffy coffee cup sticker by Freckled Fawn, little hearts tape runner by Maggie Holmes, patterned papers from the Paige Evans ‘Fancy Free’ collection, old mini market letter stickers, washi tape and word strips by October Afternoon, an old Dear Lizzy label sticker and a Gossamer Blue flair.

I also enjoyed taking part in the other Be Inspired challenges.
