Did I tell you

that I've been hanging out at the Sisterhood of Scrap forum lately? They have had an absolutely awesome month of challenges to get the mojo flowing. I've scrapped more this past month than in many a long day, that's for sure. A lot of the layouts you've seen on the blog lately have been from challenges posted there. What a help in getting Hugh's album caught up! Almost there...

This layout was from a challenge posted this morning. It's simple but asked me to actually use some glimmer spray... something I don't do very often! I like the way it turned out - simple and masculine I think. 

I used papers from the Boys Rule Scrapbook October kit. Every month Laura Lee puts together a great kit full of BOY papers - she often has both little and big boy kits. I decided to take the plunge and ordered two of her latest little boy kits. This one -  Jillibean Soup "spotted owl" - is just so full of fun, bright papers and lots of fun embellishments as well. I thought it looked great against the neutral background of the kraft cardstock.

Thanks for looking! If you do check out Boys Rule, please tell Laura Lee that I sent you! :-)

Scrapping yesterday

Yesterday was the monthly scrap day with my local scrap group. Here are a couple of the layouts I did. Moving right along with gs's album!

Scrap much lately?

I've been scrapping up a storm in November! I took a week off to sew a baby quilt for a lady at church but was hard back at it this past week. Here are a few of the layouts I dropped off this afternoon for the design team at Tina's .

I hope you've enjoyed the layouts as much as I did creating them!

Busy Scrapping Day!

Got busy in my scraproom yesterday. Was doing some of the fabulous challenges from Sisterhood of Scrap where I've been sort of hanging out lately. The challenges all leant themselves to layouts for Hugh's album. Here are a few I completed yesterday:

Knock, knock... is anyone still out there?

This morning I sliced a banana into my coffee. I thought it might be a cosmic reminder to get my act back together and actually focus on things for a change. LOL

I know that I've sadly neglected to update my blog this past month. It's not that I haven't been scrapping or taking pictures, it's that I HAVE!!

I had the grandbabies here for Thanksgiving (took a ton of photos) but made it my mission to finish scrapping gs's album before I started in on the gorgeous photos we took that weekend. Why do I set these limitations on myself? Well, I guess because if I don't, I'll never finish.. oh the trials of being a procrastinator who just loves to "live in the moment"!

I went away to a scrap retreat in October. I started a mini-book for Hugh's first year. That's about all I did except a couple of layouts. It was a pathetic showing from a great weekend of fun and inspiration BUT it left me with a ton of page kits to just pick and work on when the mood strikes! I've been busy in my scraproom lately and want to share some of the layouts and projects I've been working on.

In the meantime though, here's a photo of our boy at Halloween... well for about 3 seconds the day BEFORE Halloween... he wasn't too impressed with his costume and was freaked out by the kids all coming to the door... ahh well... at least we have a photo. :-)

Have a super day all!
