Life At 35

I can not believe it's August already!! I just 2 short days I will be a year older, which feels a little strange because I'll officially be closer to 40 than 30! YIKES! Last month, I had the pleasure of guest designing for Scrapstreet.com. The assignment was to create a layout of me at my current age. I love doing these types of layouts because I know in a few years I can look back and see exactly how I was feeling or what I was thinking at a given time in my life.

I used this beautiful line, Gypsy Sisters by Kaiser Crafts and a mixture of embellishments from different manufacturers.

Journaling: Life @ 35 isn't quite what I imagined it would be, but it's still good. 5/9/10

I'm a homeowner and am married with two sons. I am unemployed and have been since August, 2009. I want to start my own business, but am feeling a little overwhelmed. I am in the process of searching for a part-time job for extra money. I have been scrapbooking for 6 years and counting and love that I get to design projects for several manufacturers. My love for photography continues to grow every day.


Here are a few close-ups of some of the details.




I framed the clear printed packaging, backed it with a piece of patterned paper and used it as an embellishment...very "green" of me huh.

Supplies: Patterned paper, die cuts: Kaiser Craft (Gypsie Sisters); chipboard, ribbon: Pink Paislee; Lace: Savvy n sassy; Flowers, transparent packaging: Prima; gems: Prima, Kaiser Crafts, Want 2 Scrap; frames: Melissa Frances; butterflies: Alexx Kesh; ink: Clearsnaps; pen: Sharpie; stickles: Ranger; silhouette sticker: Heidi Swapp; adhesive: Helmar Zapdots, Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive; Helmar Premium Craft Glue; Helmar Scrap Dots
