Here’s the first reject – the "Shore Thing" page - a labor of love (pun intended). This one was for a call for layouts about love. I have never even scrapped my wedding photos and I don't like to do layouts about myself so this was difficult for me. I worked late into the night on this page. Figuring out my approach was hurdle #1. (I decided to focus on our life on and near the water). Finding the photos was hurdle #2 (I went way way back for that photo with the #484. That is a picture of the main sail on the sailboat where Dan and I met for the first time...in 1987!). The journaling is on the back of the bingo card. (Or at least it will be...)
Reject #3 is a mini album I made last spring. This is one of my all time favorite minis. I love the size, the shape, the colors and most of all the photos inside. The little tag book is Maya Road - it's my favorite blank mini and I have few of these on hand for future use. They fit wallet sized photos perfectly with just enough room left around them to get creative.
Well, for the past week I’ve been preoccupied with my parent’s party, making those cookies and misc. family drama so I haven’t had much desk time. While away, though, I’ve been amassing a sizable collection of new product for my stash. All sitting on the desk in a very tempting pile, waiting for my return. There’s an impulse online purchase from 2 Peas (could not resist those ‘new product’ tweets), the Studio Calico Kit and the haul from a quick visit to Scrapper’s Cove on Sunday morning. (Have you seen these new K & Co papers? At least I think they are new. This one has texture. I almost feel like hanging it on the wall it's so pretty.)
I cannot wait to get some time with all that new stuff. There are several design team calls happening now – need to work on a few projects for that. Week 5 of the Ella sketch is up, Cards Blog transparency challenge, Creative Imaginations sketch challenge, American Crafts – all challenges I’d like to work on this week. Lots to do - I'll post as I go...
