September Pinspire Me Mood Board

Welome to the September Pinspire Me Mood Board!  Are we ready to send out kids back to school after a long summer?   Are you a teacher?  A student?  What draws you to our board?  The colors are spot on for heading back to school or even everyday activities.  We are encouraging you to document your the everyday and share it with us for a chance to win a gift card to the Paper Issues store.  All you have to do is upload your project to our PIFF page HERE and you automatically get entered.  

Let's see what the team has been up to and what they got out of the board.  
Here is my layout.  I used Crate Paper's Cool Kid collection.  

Lisa Swift was inspired by the overall color scheme, the rulers, the clock, the bus and the way the erasers were stacked!  

Kelly Feldman's layout is so bright and fresh. The cork is perfect for school and the pencils!

Heather Shank rocked this background by simply using a patterned paper.  I adore the sneakers!

How perfect are these numbers randomly placed around the page?  Great job Amanda Baldwin!  Life is Beautiful and so is this page!

Stacie Dietz was inspired by the pencils and repetition of the lines/stripes in several of the images.  Her use of the Amy Tangerine is perfect for this school layout.  

Mary Ann Jenkins went classic and it worked perfectly.  I love that she takes the time to journal the story.  She used Photo Play's Genius collection.  

The background, the Crate Paper Cool kid collection and a great photo rounded out this layout for Rachel O'Neal.  Look close at all the little details.  I love it. 

We always tell you to let the board inspire you.  We may be leaning toward school but you can take away whatever draws you in.  Like Melissa Smith did!  She was drawn to the yellow and red and used Amy Tangerine to complete a layout about her pup.  PERFECT!

I think my scrap crush goes tooooooo...... Michelle Gallant.  I love EvErY SingLE thiNg ABouT this!!!

I love Ann Tamimi's clean style on this layout.  Very refreshing.  

Now take a close look this colorful, fun layout from Carolyn Fraser-Johnson.  You don't want to miss a detail here.  It is full of love. 

We hope you are inspired to get going on this fun Pinspire Me mood board.  
If this board inspired so many DT members, it surely can inspire you too.
