Lasting Memories #53 Who or what inspires you?

Good morning to you is another Sunday filled with Lasting Memories.  Not only is there a new challenge, but Karen is also looking for new Design Team members.  So if you are interested in getting on the DT, all you have to do is play along EVERY week in August.  That's how I got on the DT and I've been having a blast doing it.  Karen and the other ladies are so inspirational and encouraging.  So, if you have thought about it, get that layout done and join in the fun.

This week, Karen has challenged us to do a layout about someone or something that inspires you.  This one was a challenge for me for sure, because I usually only scrap my family.  Of course they inspire me all the time, but I wanted to really make something else.  So I thought about what I like doing most outside of crafting and came up with darts.  I've been throwing darts for about 10 years now.  My husband got me interested in the game and we've been to many tournaments and I've won my share of trophies also.  Whether it be playing singles, doubles, mixed trips or even team, I LOVE the game.
Since purple is my favorite color and my darts are
purple I thought this color combo was a nice fit.
I decided to do the layout more about what I throw
and the meaning for it.  It is an obsession with me.
I added a matchbook that I made as used it
for my sentiment "one match at a time".
It's a way for me to remember that you have
to take it one match at a time...
Then when you open the matchbook, I also
added "my" darts inside.  I scanned my darts,
printed them out, and cut out around them.
I love how this turned out.
I hope I've inspired you to scrap something or someone that inspires you.  Now don't forget that Lasting Memories is looking for some new people to add to their DT and the next person to inspire others could be you
