Lots to share...


So where do I begin??? I had a blast scrappin' at Damaris's house last Saturday. I didn't really scrap till the second half of the day because it took me a while to get going and for my mojo to kick into high gear... OK, I was chit-chatting! LOL! Anyway, I completed five layouts, including this one based on a Janelle Richmond sketch from Work in Progress.

I really enjoyed working with my June Cocoa Daisy kit with beautiful shades of blue and green, and a touch of yellow and pink. So summery!

Karen Russell: 10 REASONS
Have you guys seen this album idea that Karen posted on her blog? I really love her style and her approach to scrapbooking. This is one lady that inspires me! Anyway, she compiled a kit for this album and hers focuses on 10 reasons why she wants to make changes in her life. Take a look at this opening page and read her 10 reasons on the same blog post. I tell ya, I really loved this! Maybe I can incorporate this theme into a layout or something becase I can't spend any more money right now!

Why do you scrapbook?
I came across this column on Scrapbook.com and I can so relate! I know a lot of you have shared similar stories with me about how others see your scrapbooking as a waste of time or whatever, so you'll want to read this! I was teary-eyed by the time I was done...

Getting Published
Last, but certainly not least, my fave new magazine, Scrapbook Trends recently requested one of my layouts for publication so make sure to check me out in the Nov. 2008 issue (like you're actually gonna remember! LOL!) Don't worry, I will be sure to remind you all :-)

I will post more layouts later this week, but right now I'm just too tired! Here's to a 4-day work week! Whoohoo!

Peace and happy scrapping!

Congrats on getting published... I'm so proud of you. The layout turned out great. I love the sun chipboard on kit. I'm off to read that post because I often get those questions and I really need something new to tell all those negative non interesting people that just don't understand.

Hey! That's cool! The 10 reasons thingy. That's actually what I'm doing with my July kit from SDUI. It was a little inspired by my theme with my Jenny Bolin kit and went from there. That's neat! Great minds think a like! Ha!

OMG! Just read the "Why I scrapbook" blog. Loved it! Very powerful! I think we can all relate in some way to that. Thanks for sharing that!

(Cracked up with the giant dust mites comment...amen to that!)
