just had to share my excitment over the package that just arrived via my man in brown! I had placed an order from Scrapbook.com last week hoping it would arrive before this past weekend so I could have some fun new product for a crop that I went to. Unfortuneatly, it arrived today...but when I opened the box I got excited all over again! Plus, I was able to use up some paper I had on hand (a huge issue for me...isn't it that way with everyone???) and now I have some fun new papers to play with. My box was full of great papers from Cosmo Cricket and the Cherry Hill Collection from October Afternoon (which I am in LOVE with!). So, as soon as I clean up the big old mess I made packing for this past weekend's crop, I will be creating with my new stuff and sharing some fun new pages with you.
I did get a few pages accomplished this weekend. Not as much as I would have liked though, but my darn creativity decided to hold out until mid-afternoon so it took me FOREVER to finish the first page. I did make a jump though to single page layouts which was a huge step for me and I think I was a bit hesitant on the first as I have always done 2 page layouts. However, let me tell you that after doing the first, it was so freeing to be done and move on and I found it easier to work with. Now that I have made the jump I will be freely mixing one and two page layouts throughout my albums...and who knows, maybe I can catch up a bit quicker (I can dream...right?).
So today I am going to share one of my layouts. I just love these pics and have been waiting for the right paper & layout to scrap them. I found the polka dot paper on the backside of paper I had purchased at my LSS when it was going out of business....I didn't even know I had it and thought it was perfect for this page. I used a layout from PageMaps, which made my day so much easier.
This is a pic of my son, many, many years ago when he was supposed to be napping...funny thing is as I was weeding the flower beds I looked up and saw my little monkey waving at me...little stinker...
So that is it for now. I had posted a few weeks back that I was going to do a give away because I was hitting 100 posts. I still plan on doing it, but want to pull together some goodies before I announce it. So...stay tuned the blog candy info is coming (promise).
Happy crafting -
