i am scrapping again… well for now

so it seems it has been a while but the scrapbooking bug has hit me.. well just for a bit anyway as the art journal bug is bigger and bites harder… but then again that altered art bug, well it has a mighty big bite too and there is a project that is begging to be done!!! time is almost right!

i spent a lot of time organizing lately and realized holy macaroni i have a lot of stuff…. A LOT .. and i so need to use it up before adding more to it… remember my word this year is less.. less buying more using

so for today i am going to share with you a couple of layouts i did over the weekend. the first one features 4 of my besties during an outing this summer. i thought of them all a lot this weekend and created this layout.  i had been visiting the a pile of sketches (http://apileofsketches NULL.blogspot NULL.com/2011/12/sketch-9 NULL.html) site and loved the sketch that Vicki had posted and the layouts that followed by some very creative and talented women

as i was searching, organizing, cleaning yesterday i happened upon some pictures that i had taken and printed from summer of 2010. i had taken ohh prolly about three hundred pics that day and have only scrapped a few.

i also have been fully engrossed in the whole Creative Jump Start (http://nathaliesstudio NULL.com/tutorials/creative-jump-start-summit-2012/) videos that Nat has been hosting. i have gleamed something from each. yesterday Anna Björklund (http://mymessyspot NULL.blogspot NULL.com/?utm_source=Creative+Jumpstart+Summit+2012&utm_campaign=7aade40625-Creative+Jump+Start+Summit+-+Jump+Start5&utm_medium=email)showed us a layout she created using textile paste. this was my attempt at using it

and my final layout of the day was a page about me. i have some changes happening in my world and wanted to remind my self to breathe.. just breathe

til next time…
