Two Looks

I love the neat, clean look of the layout with the negative space, but I love piling things on too! The top layout was done with little embellishment. The layout below I painted raw chipboard, then covered it with glitter and tied ribbon to it. This is a good example of me not having a particular "style" of scrapping, I like to mix it up.

First Task at Lime Light

Our first task at Lime Light was to make a set of 2 cards and a bookmark for Marines. One card is for the Marine, one for them to send to a loved one and the bookmark can be for either. Check out our blog for more pics. I am so happy to be part of this charitable design team and being able to use my hobby to help others, even if it is such a small thing as a card.

The Whole Thing!

I made my own embellishments for this layout. I cut donuts out of cardboard and sprinkled them with bits of cardstock.

Lil Monsters

Logen is a vampire and Hayes is a bat this year for Halloween. This layout was done for Scrap Your Crap's new challenge to use up your old Halloween stuff, the buttons that I sewed to the fence are several years old. The vampire was made using Cricut's Paper Doll cartridge that I have had for awhile and never used.

Also, I am so excited to be chosen for Scrap City's new design team and I can't wait to get started working with these very talented group of gals! Thanks Wendy for making me part of your team.

Go Logen Go

I've been a bad blogger and I really need to make my blog hopping rounds, too! I have been trying to reorganize my scrap space and it's been a slow process. I am in the process of sorting everything by color and I think once I finish it will a great system. Stacy Jullian was on Scrapbook Memories a few weeks ago and stated that was how she worked, so I thought I would give it a try.

I finally finished a layout today though. The journaling on this layout is was done on a Maya Road sheer plastic index card. I had so much to say that I attached a piece of paper folded accordian style, then attached to card and page and used paper clips to hold the spot.

Kristin's Pre-K Group Pic

I've been working on an album for Kristin using mostly current photos. I was challenged at Scrap City to do a school themed layout and this was perfect for her album to add an older photo and one that I wouldn't scrap for my album since it's a group photo. I journaled quite a bit about her 4-K experience because she will likely not remember much about this time in her life.
