Wow! Summer around the corner. Hard to believe we're already midyear. Just finished LOAD (layout a day with Lain Ehmann). I feel great having made 31 layouts in one month. Since so many were double page ones and one was a multi-media piece it really was a LOT of work.
I have all the LO's on Flickr at
And here is a little collage of my work
I learned a lot during this time. It really is helpful to prepare kits ahead of time or to use a store bought kit. Green Tangerines gave out a few good ones at the NSD celebration. Even if one doesn't like to follow a kit exactly (I don't), the head start is invaluable. Digi quick pages are even faster. However, I am not a minimal scrapper. I like lots of details and found myself going back to layouts I'd made and adding little touches or just going for the techniques straightaway. Even 911 looks simple; but, those numbers were naked chipboard and I added paint and glitter glaze to them. I like to play when I scrap. I also am sure that bold colors, lots of patterns, and dimensional letter sticker titles are part of my style. I seem to favor photos on the left, too.
Still working on learning new things in art and scrapping. It's the best way for this to stay FUN for me!
Now, to celebrate summer, I am having a few give away prizes here on my blog. The first is these 3 bottles of Dylusions ink from Ranger.
