Do you ever get to the point where you just don't want to be in front to a computer. Well, that's how I've felt lately. So I'm a little behind in dishing out some blog love but I know you all forgive me. But I have something really exciting to share. This weekend, some friend and I are going on a scrapbooking retreat!!!! Thursday evening through Sunday, I'm so excited. Jealous? I know you are!!! I spent most of my waking hours last weekend printing photos and figuring out which pp to bring, and I'm nowhere near done. But enough of that, I do have some layouts to post. This first one was a labor of love. It was sitting on my craft table for days and I was struggling to get it right. The paper and butterflies are from February's Artful Delights kit! The picture is of Marin, wearing toy binoculars and carrying a magnifying glass and calling herself, "Marin the Great Looker". This LO was for last weeks DT Challenge at Let's Scrap. There is another DT Challenge posted this week, the challenge is to use transparencies so go check it out right here!!!
This next layout is for today's sketch reveal over at Let's Scrap. This time I opted to only do the left side of the sketch. Go check out the entire sketch, what the DT did, and the yummy goodies you can win right here!!! For this LO I wanted to try to combine Echo Parks Be Mine line with Graphic 45's Alice in Wonderland Halloween line. I can't remember what the green paper with the black scalloped border is, I know it's from a Halloween line. So Theresa when you comment will you remind me what it is? But I love how this turned out and it's my kind of color combo!
Scrapbookers Anonymous. This month the challenge is to use at least 7 flowers. Not homemade flowers, but flowers that you've had in your stash for awhile and just haven't used. On my layout I used a bunch of silk flowers that I once loved but now I want them to be gone so I can make room for better things. This is a very simple LO, just a super bright piece of green card stock, some doodling and the flowers. But I felt with these colors it was best to keep it kinda simple. Oh and the prize is ever so wonderful, I really want it for myself. The picture of the goodies on the SA blog doesn't quite do it justice. But trust me, it's wonderful!!!
Have a good weekend everyone, mine starts in about 9 hours!!!
