MY - One Little Word

Well, I actually tried some self reflection with this page and this is where I ended up. This has been my biggest downfall. I sometimes act like a child and have to remind myself that I am a thirty year old woman! Change is so hard, it is always easy to revert back to old habits. As I worked on this page, I recognized several areas where I need to grow. This page was created for a challenge posted by One Little Word blog. Check it out!

Lovely Card

I made this card for Caardvarks blog challenge to mix 3 different paper companies on one card. I chose Chatterbox, Crate Paper, Prima, and We R Memory Keepers to make this vintage looking card. I loved this feather ribbon I picked up on sale at Michaels for next to nothing. Throughout the year I have thown it on paper bag albums, layouts, and cards. Pretty much everything vintage. I also used Vellum, and Making Memories ink (the one that came with their distressing kit).

MAC - May Scraptivity Kit

I have finally cracked open my Scraptivity Kit from May. This is one of my pages. I have had this picture for about 1 year and finally got around to scrapping it. This is my son's best friend. I am actually kind of tired of scrapping my immediate family. I need to branch out. I think my next project will be scrapping an object. Check out this layout of a vintage tea set. I thought it was extremely effective. Off to bed. Good night.
