YAY!!! I FINALLY scrapped!!!
Other than one I did for my friend Michele, these are my first layouts in over SEVEN MONTHS!! So I'm rusty.. be kind, please (but don't lie to me if they suck, LOL)
So my monthly crop was Saturday and I'll admit, I talked more than I scrapped :)
My friend Michele went with me and we just couldn't stop gabbing. She got like 10 layouts done and I got three :(
(I hadn't been to an NJS crop in over a year so I had alot of catching up to do with some of the girls.. LOL)
Anyway, here is what I accomplished. I apologize for the really cruddy pics. I still haven't figured out my PSE 9 editing software that I've had since Christmas (yikes!)
"Two of a Kind" - this one I let the patterned paper do all the work. Very simple layout about my son and his best friend at his Birthday party.
Paper: Fancy Pants & Bazzill; Alpha stickers: Doodlebug; Photo Corners: WRMK; used my Cuttlebug to cut the stars
This was my paternal Grandmother, Grandma Martin. She died when I was nineteen. I didn't know her well at all because I was estranged from my Dad until I was eighteen but I've heard alot about her from him and other family.
This layout took me four hours. I am NOT kidding. I stuck all the bling on by hand after the batteries in my Imaginisce bling tool died. What a PAIN IN THE BUTT!! I will definitely be buying Prima bling swirls from now on. It's worth the $6.99 to just plop it on there in a few minutes and be done with it, LOL.
Anyone want to buy my bling tool? Great idea but FAIL. Definitely NOT worth the time it takes. Even when the batteries ARE working. And my right hand is STILL hurting from using that tool!
Paper, bird diecut, flower stickers, all paper for roses & "Treasure" sticker: Colorbok "Flea Market" line; photo corners: Making Memories; other: lace doilie, Imaginisce bling
This is a scraplift of a local friend, Sarah Mullanix. I changed it up a bit, added the 5, etc. Love these pics from his Birthday party :)
Paper: Scenic Route, Imaginisce & Bazzill; Alphas: Doodlebug, The Paper Studio & Sandylion; Other: bakers twine, Love Elsie ribbon
Michele and I left the crop early to go to Big Lots for cheap, GREAT scrappy goodies and when we came out of the store, it was storming REALLY bad. What a crazy drive home that was (the crop was about 52 miles from home)
On the way home we heard about the tragedy at the Indiana State Fair.
God bless the families affected and the men and women who bravely pulled people from under the steel mess. I am very proud to be a Hoosier right now.
Speaking of the State Fair, we went last week. We rode the train from where we live in Fishers all the way down to the fair in Indy and Caleb was just SO happy with the train ride. I think that was his favorite part :)
Here are a few pics from the fair. This was a very impromptu trip.. we didn't know we were going til thirty minutes before we went. So after I shot the first picture below, my camera batteries DIED. I kidd you not. And I was stuck carrying around my camera ALL DAY at the fair. What a pain, LOL.
So the rest after this first one are from my cell phone:
Thanks for looking. Have a great week!!
