A bright and fun LO

I am trying to do my best to update at least once a week with a LO I have created. Life has been a little hectic lately but I still wanted to get one of my recent LOs posted for your viewing pleasure. I really like this picture of Jeremy and I taken a number of Christmas' ago while visiting his parents. I have wanted to journal about how opposite we are for some time. This LO reminds me of those differences and how we used to view them as the reasons for our arguements and fights and how I now see them as opportunities for us to learn from each other and grow.

This LO is a lot brighter than I usually do, but I am pleased with it. I actually made the background paper myself with my watercolor pencils. Thanks for checking it out!!

On a roll and twisted sketches challenge

So I am back in the game and scrapping away. I was feeling kind of burnt out lately with everything that is going on but definitely thought that I needed some creativity in my life to get me going again.

Today was a good day. Jeremy and I slept in, set up the lamps I bought for the living room, started a new renovation project, took a trip to costco, stopped by Michaels (I just HAD to go, I had a coupon) and then came home and I finished off this LO that I started this morning.

The frame idea was taken from a magazine I was looking at awhile ago and I am sorry I don't remember which one or who the artist was. I just loved the idea of filling a frame with buttons. In my LO I also used a few of those pebble embellishments and filled in some spaces with stickles. Who doesn't love stickles?!?!?!

The sketch is the latest from TWISTED SKETCHES I just love Anam's stuff!!! The twist was staples and I've added them on the top to attach the heart and to attach the lace as well.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Two Challenges= one great LO

So I have been in a slump lately so I guess my creative juices have been all saved up and I seem to be back on a roll. YEAH!!!

So here is my LO inspired by design goodness at SkrapNChat and Scrap The Girls. It's LOAD (Layout a Day) at SkrapNChat if you want to come and check out the fun! It's always a good time!

Opposites Challenge

It's been awhile since I posted. I actually haven't scrapbooked much in the last little bit as my Grandpa has been pretty sick and in the hospital. However, I did sneak away for a few hours yesterday to get in some much needed scrap therapy!

This LO was created for a challenge at ScrapNChat called opposites. You had to use 3 opposites from a list of 10. I used fav/not fav color, even and odd embellishment numbers, and soft and hard embellishment.

The tree in the LO is a whole package of prima flowers. Gotta love those Primas!!! I am pretty happy with this page. THanks for looking!!!
