I finally got some time over the week and this weekend to finish a few scrapbook pages. I try to work on my pages whenever I have a spare moment. Those days of creating pages in one 2- 3 hour sitting are over. On a good day, I can get a page done and start on another one. A bad day: I start a page and work bit by bit and usually finish it the next day… or so… (it has taken up to 3 days). This is my hobby and my peace so I feel the need to do it. If I let this go, then I would not have anything left that I was doing solely for me. I need the outlet and the fact that I get to play with color makes it even better.
So here are a few of my latest…
This weekend the new BYOC collection was released at The Lilypad. I loved the colors and they were perfect for this photo from about a year ago. I actually have another idea in mind I want to try a little later. I started this page and really was going to try for a more clean, less cluttered look…. and that didn’t happen. It took on a life of it’s own. For this page, I used…
- Twitterpated: Patterns & Backgrounds – Allison Pennington
- Bloomin’ Dahl-icious – Kim Jensen
- Sprinkles V32 | La Vie En Rose | A Bit Worn Journal Card Masks – Valorie Wibbens
- Mash Up 10 – Gina Miller
This next page is all about the little man taking up all of my time. I just love it when he is smiling and in a good mood. Seeing him sit up so well now is a real treat. That has really changed things. There is nothing he won’t try to grab now. I used Up To No Good by Jady Day Studio at Sweet Shoppe Designs for this page. I fell in love with her kit the first time I saw it and instantly knew what photo I wanted to use. It’s rare that I use cloud elements on my pages; I love how it turned out.
That’s all from me. Thanks for looking! Hope your weekend is ending on a good note!
