Busy Day

So today is going to be one of those days filled with running errands & housework... Sure I'd rather be doing something else but it has to be done.


I'd rather be:

gardening

working on a layout

visiting blogs & forums
talking to a friend


Oh well the sooner I start the sooner I'll finish...


Here's a layout I completed using a photo of my mom going to her sr. prom.





The titlework is made with the Cricut Storybook cart. I did my favorite technique of cutting 4 from inexpensive kraft cardstock from Hobby Lobby & adhering them together. I tried to cut a 5th layer from Bazzill but it was too intricate & was tearing big time so I decided to just ink the top layer with some Tim Holtz distressed inks. It turned out better than what I had planned. Don't you love when that happens?

Forgot the supply list.... thanks Karen Sue for reminding me....
Cardstock (Paper Resources); Paper (Prima - brown, K&CO - pink & cream & Webster's Pages - under titlework); Flowes (Prima & Hero Arts); Tags (Tim Holtz); Inks (Tim Holtz, Ranger & Colorbox); Stamp (Studio Calico); Titlework (Cricut Storybook); Punch (Martha Stewart EK); Thread (Coats & Clarks); Ribbon (Misc Vintage); Trim (Hobby Lobby & Webster's Pages); Buttons (Misc Vintage stash); Pearls (Hero Arts)

I wanted to let you know about a new group. It started on facebook & now it is on the ing boards. I'm loving the ing groups that I've been joining lately. Paperclipping is over there & it's nice to have gallery/forum/blogs etc all in one place with live chat added too. So the new one is Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends. I started a couple groups on there about 2 of my favorite scrapbooking topics (all you regulars are shaking your heads) say it with me.... heritage & my childhood yay you guessed it. I hope you will join me over there for some inspiration.



Well thanks for visiting today.
Take some time for yourself to be creative... whatever that means to you.
