Finally scrapped

a page! I was beginning to think there was seriously something wrong with me. I have had no desire to want to scrap. I mean I think about it all the time, but I just can't make myself go to my room and do it. We've had a lot going on here with remodeling the front room. I wanted it to be a simple thing -- freshen up the paint and lay the new Pergo flooring. I should know nothing ends up being It's taken a good two weeks, but I LOVE the look! As soon as I have the finishing touches up, I'll show the before and after.

The layout I created was so much fun because there was no limits to what I could put on it. That felt weird at the same time because I'm so used to creating with design team kits. It's almost as if I don't know what to add because it isn't already picked out for me...silly, I know. You might be thinking, "who's this little girl?" Isn't she just the sweetest thing! She's the daughter of a friend of my friend Cheri. Cheri scraps pictures of her all the time and I asked if I could have a few to get inspired because her mom takes some AWESOME photos!! Well, it helped because it made me dig through paper and find a perfect match. From that point, I grabbed a fab sketch from Beggahuna and ran with it.

The good thing, too, is I actually used my Silhouette! I love when I put that machine to use and justify my purchase.


I don't think I ever posted about the fact that I joined the whole "Project 365" club... I was one of the lucky ones who got a kit -- actually I ended up with two and the only reason I kept the second is a gal from Willow Traders contacted me to see if I had the extra one coming and if so she wanted to purchase it. Well, of course, I couldn't turn her down. I've been having fun putting mine together and taking pictures every day. I'm just hoping I can keep it up in a month or two. Some of the cards need a little more decorating, but I'll get to that later...maybe
