I was going to write some wonderfully eloquent post this weekend about getting back into the swing of things with scrapbooking after being on an almost two month hiatus, but I can't sleep. So what better to do at 330 in the morning when the rest of the world is sleeping (except for my little doggy who I swear just rolled her eyes at me before laying her head down and going back to sleep) than...blog.
This past weekend, I finally stopped cleaning and organizing and catching up on work and running around everywhere. I sat down at my scrap table and pulled out a few packages of Studio Calico papers and goodies I bought, it seems, a lifetime ago. I used an Amy Tan sketch from Studio Calico's 9.02.12 Sketch Challenge.
Next, I went through my camera and found these pictures of Lula giving Randy the stinkface - I don't even remember why now, but the pictures had me laughing and I knew I had to use them.
It felt so good to sit down and spend a few hours getting lost in creativity. I've already got several ideas (and plans) floating around in the old gray matter for a project (or two) this weekend.
Going to try to get a little more sleep before my alarm goes off in a couple of hours. But before I go, here are a few close-ups from my layout.
I decided to sew across the smaller sticker letters in my title. Why? Because I love my sewing machine and have really missed using it. Yep. That's all the reason I've got. *smile*
Here is a Pebbles or Amercian Crafts flower that I changed a little to better fit the color scheme of my layout. I seem to enjoy embellishing my embellishments!
LOVE these little envelopes and all of Studio Calico's wood veneer shapes. I think I have used those shapes in almost every single layout recently.
And that's it for me. Until next time...
