So, what kind of creative things have you all been working on lately? As for me, I have a layout to share today. It was inspired by two sources. The first bit of inspiration comes from the blog Child's Play Challenges, where the image prompt is the cover of the old Disney movie Pete's Dragon.

My family is so heavily involved in kung fu that when I hear the word "dragon," I think of Chinese dragons. Dragon imagery figures into kung fu moves a great deal, so I chose to scrapbook some photos of my son testing to qualify for a new kung fu belt. I also used a lot of green and purple/pink on my page, inspired by the colors of Pete's dragon.
The rest of my inspiration came from Once Upon A...Sketch. Their prompt this month is the sketch shown above, coupled with the topic "The Journey..." Instead of writing about a physical journey from Point A to Point B, I filled my journaling with remarks about my son's journey of personal development as he advances through the levels of his kung fu club.
Here are a few detail shots...
