MicroVolts and Instagrams I get the whole instagram trend right now. The photos are not awesome, but it's fun. I have been saving them to my computer so I can then print them out. The come out nicely on a 4x6 photo paper. I then cut and trim them down so I can scrapbook with them.

I took an instagram of my son playing a video game and then made a layout about it. I know...big shocker, another video game layout. What can I say except that it's a big hobby in our household. When I created this page, I used the composition I saw on the cover of a music album. I also googled an image of the character my son likes to play in the game.

Scrapbooking on a budget has gotten me using my pens a lot more. I took a hand lettering class at Creative Passions. So I decided to put what I had learned to use here.

For more ideas about using Print ads and other materials as inspiration check out this article( in which this layout appears) at Get it scrapped.
