NSD Scrapping

OK, so this weekend, I was somewhat of a bad wife and mother! Saturday was National Scrapbook Day and I decided to hide down in my new scrap area and create a few things. I ended up chatting more than creating, but hey it was a "holiday" after all and I could do anything I want...right?! I had no desire to cook or clean--well, I did feed my family and deep cleaned the living room yesterday, but I ignored the rest of the house. And my kids KNOW how to get my attention when they need it!

I created a few layouts- this one was my favorite because I designed the layout to describe me (one of the challenges over at scrap-diner.com).

The photo is a reflection of myself that I caught in one of the buildings in Boston while riding the trolley. I thought it was a really cool shot.

I whipped out the Graphic 45 papers here- they are so rich and worked perfectly with the photo!

journaling: I love taking city tours because I learn so much about the place I'm visiting. This day trip to Boston was pure joy for me; Boston's filled with so much U.S. history, I just wish I had more than a few hours to take it all in! Oct 18, 2008


This is how the layout describes me:

I have a soft, feminine, flirty side sometimes I can be a "miss priss" - the smooth textures of the bling and puffy alpha and the feminine lace and flowers

I also have a rough tomboyish side- the ripped, distressed edges and the dark colors of the papers

See the heart in the center of the left side of the page? Well when I first meet people, I'm a little shy and quiet, almost hidden like the heart.

Other times, I'm like the orange circle bling, I'm the center of attention. I always have a story to tell that keeps people laughing! You can usually hear my loud laugh for blocks! LOL!

I like to travel hence the travel page

Like the bull clip at the top of the page, I hold things together even if by a thread.

If you look at me a little closer, you'll see there's more than meets the eye- like the stamps that are held by the bulldog clip. Look a little closer and you'll see that I cut them so the the ones with "New England" are at the top since the page is about Boston which is a part of the New England states.

I pay attention to detail! Did you notice that the heart is a mirror? The photo is of my reflection, I used the word reflection on the LO and the mirror gives off a reflection....ah haaaa! (said like one of the barbershop characters from Coming To America)

now for a couple of close-ups



I created this quick and easy LO about my niece and nephew who will be 14 in a matter of months. Watching them grow up is making me feel old! LOL!

And this one was created using a sketch provided by Michelle Lanning. It's about my Xander learning to feed himself! OOOh just wait until you see the spaghetti pictures that I took the other day....ME-SS-Y!

That's all for now! Scrap-diner's crop lasts all month long, so I'm sure I'll have more to show you as the challenges and prizes are fantabulous!!!
