As you know I've been kinda MIA a bit.
I have been trying to figure some stuff out in my life and part of that is whether or not to give up scrapbooking.
I'm not sure if it's just cuz of the stresses of life, but I just haven't felt the desire to scrap.
I have been keeping up w/ my DT commitments, and I will be sharing some layouts for those later in the week and in the weeks to follow, but as far as scrapping just for fun...it just hasn't felt..."right".
But I challenged myself to create a "just for fun" layout this past weekend and I am here to share what I came up w/.
"Getting My Scrap On"
Journaling: "I usually scrap in my scrapbook room but on this particular day
I was in the kitchen. Regardless of where I scrap it always ends up the same: A Mess!!"
I created this one because it was a fairly simple layout. The paper was already pretty much ready to go (see top layer):
I just added some doodling, journaling, a mutltiple stamped date, a punched photo corner, one chipboard embellie and a pic.
BTW - did you notice my scrapping companion?
She's kinda hard to see so here's a close up!
That's Panini snoozing in the box of one of my scrap kits. And there were supplies in there but she didn't seem to care! LOL!
This one wasn't as easy!
Journaling: "I know all cats have attitudes but Panini's seems worse than most!
Sometimes this makes things difficult but we love her no matter what!"
This one took a while to grow on me. In fact it took a while after I was done for it for me to feel like it was completed. I kept going back and adding things to it! I think I added to it 3 times before I declared it finally done!!! In the end I was pleased w/ it too!
The fact that I completed 2 layouts I was happy w/ is a big step for me right now because in all honesty, out of the last 8 I have created I have only really liked 3 of them! :0(
BTW - I discovered something about myself. I don't really like chipboard letters. I like sticker letters much better! I think chipboard letters are too bulky and less clean!
Well, here's hoping these 2 are a jumpstart back into my love of scrapping!
Thanks for stopping by!
