You will be relieved to know I am packin’ it in … hopefully not for another quarter, but at least for tonight!

 

Sleep tight and thanks for your patience :).

Yes, this is #3! Seriously, I guess all I needed was a national day to get me moving!

 

Here is a layout I did about a story in our family about the word “awesome” (we pronounce it “auw-shum”). This is for another Scrapbook and Cards Today challenge on doing something different for your title. I split the title up and put it on two pieces of ephemera (love that word and the stuff itself!!!). Not overly creative, but hey, I did it, didn’t I?!!!

 

 

I think I may have one more post yet tonight …

Post #2 for tonight

I may be building some momentum here … two posts in one night, after a four-month-hiatus! I’d better be careful not to use up all of my bloggin’ steam!!!

Here is another LO I did for a challenge posted by Scrapbook and Cards Today on using an embellished pin. For this silly layout I did about texting language, I took two plain old sewing pins with coloured heads and poked them through a chipboard embellishment that said TTYL and tied some baker’s twine around it. Pretty simple, but I thought it turned out kinda cute!!

I’ll be back at least one more time before the night’s through 😉

 

Seriously, it’s been waaaay too long now!

Hello, scrappy followers!

It has been more than four months since my last post, and I feel terrible for not keeping my blog updated. And I actually had to think really hard about how to do it! Honestly, even though I don’t have too many followers, I realize I can never build my scrappy groupies if I never post anything new! So a lot has happened in my life since December 29 when I last posted (many great things, some not-so-great things, but LOTS of scrappin), but I am not going to go into detail about that right now. Instead, I will be posting a series of layouts I did this weekend in celebration of National Scrapbook Day. I love whoever invented this day!!!

First up is a layout of my now-12-year-old daughter, Sydney, at her confirmation … hard to believe this was more than a year ago already. Anyway, this layout is for a challenge posted by Scrapbook and Cards Today on using memoribilia. I used Sydney’s confirmation certificate here … but you’ll see it’s tiny! I didn’t want to use up most of my scrappin’ real estate for the certificate, so I shrunk it on a colour copier! This little trick was suggested some time ago by my dear sister, Penny. She was awesome. I miss her so much. Pen, this one is for you <3.

 

 

Okay, watch for another post on the next challenge!

Thank you for visiting,

Amber
