06/13/14 - Finally!

Finally some scrapping!
Nothing too elaborate though...
It's been such a long time so I just want to ease back into it.
"Another Xmas"
Journaling: "Ivanna, 14 yrs old, makes it to another Christmas. 12/18/13"
"Rock Star"
Journaling: "Drinks and Play Station Sing Star at Ryan and Nancy's.
Mine and David's voice were hoarse at the end of the night. 5/24/14
Pictured: Me, David, Nancy, Ryan and Melva
Not Pictured: Valerie, Mario, Dawn and Dominic "
If the pictures look a bit weird it's because I had to take pictures of the layouts and crop them and I'm not very good at that!

"Rock Star" was partly inspired by the current challenge over at "ARTastic" .
Here is their inspiration piece:

"The Jam Session" by by Max Mannix
JUNE inspiration - The Jam Session by Max Mannix
Unfortunately I forgot to include distressing, which is part of the criteria, so I won't be eligible for the prize...but since it was inspired by "ARTastic" I still wanted to mention them (and share it w/ them).
BTW - The B&W pic for the "Rock Star" layout was not an artistic choice. For some reason I can't get my printer to print in color anymore! WTHeck?! See what happens when you take a break?? Things fall apart! LOL! Luckily for this layout it worked out, but I really gotta figure out what the problem is...
Anyway, it felt good to get some scrapping done!
Don't know when I will scrap again...
Hopefully it won't be as long as last time!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Glad to see you scrapping again! Weird that your printer is on a color strike. Ours prints in color, but leaves two blank streaks down the center of whenever we print in color. Perfectly fine with b/w. So frustrating!

  2. Great layouts. I like the B&W even if it wasn't on purpose :)

  3. So glad to see your pages again!! These are fabulous! LOVING the grid design on the second page!!!!!!

  4. I actually like these pics in black and white - they suit the theme. Thanks for thinking of us at ARTastic and playing along :)

  5. Both nice layouts. I thought that was distressing (or grunging-up) around the B&W photos and the word boxes.
    Love your doggie too. I have one that nearly 17. Thanks for playing along with us at ARTastic.

  6. I love the way your photos have printed.......they look great with the colours you have used on your page. Thanks for sharing it with us at ARTastic.

  7. Looks like a fun night. I like the black and white photos with the colourful background, it's very effective. You have beautiful writing for the journalling, makes me a bit jealous☺. Thanks for mentioning and sharing your page with us at ARTastic.

  8. I agree, I like the b/w photos - if you hadn't mentioned it, no one would know it wasn't a choice you made for your page! :) Glad to see you back (even if just for a flash)! :)

  9. I love this colourful and happy looking LO and the b&w picture looks fab with the colours on the bg. Thank you for sharing your fantastic LO with us at ARTastic and I hope you will be doing some more scrapbooking and post it on your blog :)

  10. Great photos and the black and white makes the other colours you have used really pop! Your handwriting is beautiful! Thank you for playing with us at ARTastic. Looking forward to seeing more of your work. Cheers, Di

  11. Love the clean lines and geometric elements of your layout. Awesome!! Thanks for joining in with ARTastic this month!


Thanks for all your comments!!! They really mean a lot to me!!!
