Layouts! My Neglected Blog!

Well, I scrapped! Finally! After MONTHS of NOT scrapping! Having a full-time job is a really buzz kill when it comes to my creative time! Oh well! It is what it is, and I'm at least earning money, so that's good. Here are a couple of layouts I created recently.

I absolutely LOVE this layout! I love the photo! I love my girls! ♥ They bring JOY into my life! I love their silliness and zest for life! They are amazing young women, and I'm so lucky to be their mom! So, we love to take silly self-portraits, and this one is a favorite! I used Authentique papers. The flowers were made out of garage sale fabric. I cut them with my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die (which I LOVE!), and I glimmer misted them. They're pretty fabulous if I must say so myself! Love the way this turned out! I need to scrap more black and white photos!

This is a fun photo of the cousins on my side of the family. I snapped this on Christmas Eve at my parents house. Love these kids! I used wonderful Bo Bunny Blitzen that I won from The Scrap Review. Love the way this turned out too. I cut the shape on my page on my Expression.

I have more layouts to show you, but I might as well create a couple of posts! Who knows when I'll have time to scrap again! As always, thanks for stopping by! ♥

Glad to see you blogging and crafting again! I especially love the Christmas LO and the way you accented the photo.

Ah Carol, we have so much in common! Two daughters that bring us so much joy, a blog neglected for a whole 2 months, lacking in scrappy time.... Your pages are absolutely beautiful as always! I miss chatting with you on the forums but am so happy that you are enjoying your new job! (...and hopefully the extra cash that comes with it ;) )
