ok... it's after 2pm. i am still in my PJ's... got up this morning and came straight into my studio and started scrapbooking. i am not sure how the kids got breakfast, but they weren't asking me, so i wasn't asking them! the kids have spent all day playing outside and i have just been working away. eric has been shopping online and i think that we watched like 5 episodes of "mythbusters"... not very inspiring, but the fact that everyone is occupied is enough inspiration for me!
so i am starting to see a dent in the stack of pics from the NYC trip! especially with today's contribution of 2 spreads; 5 photos on each for a grand total of 10 photos knocked out today! (and again, it's early afternoon!) thanks for all the comments and compliments! like i said, nothing like a good challenge to get some creativity flowing!
"underground inspiration" uses: photocorners, touch of tape, a"credit card slide", more journaling spots and block letter stickers... i cut them down right around the letter so i could fit more on! cut up a file folder for this layout as well as some edge of an old map. i really do love the subway! almost as much as i am loving the journaling spots!
"family history" is a layout about meeting my cousin that i was separated from due to the divorce of my uncle from her mother. i wasn't really sure how deep i wanted to get on this layout, because there is a lot of thoughts and feelings here.. but i decided simply to make a fun, happy layout that captured what an enjoyable experience it was to meet up again! here i used my own paper... from the LIMITED paper designs that we released at memory trends; more "credit card" stuff (a ribbon slide and a paper slide--they are the ones that say "smile" and "beautiful smile"--also released at memory trends); silhouette shapes under the chipbord letters for the title; ribbon; brads, photocorners, tape and *good news* found more pink jewels! - oh, don't forget the journaling spot!
i think that the journaling spots are my new fAvorite item.
