Blast from the past Layout

I wanted to post this layout that I did a couple years ago. Mostly to motivate ME to get into my messy craft room and just do it already. I have been making excuses all week as  to why I can't start a new layout. I'm hoping that this page reminds me WHY I love scrapbooking. This is one of my fondest memories of my girls playing together.

I also finally got around to making a blog for my Project 365. A week late, but not bad for me the procrastinator. You can find it on my sidebar.

I hope to be back in a few days with some more projects to share!

First Sketch with Inspired Crafters!!

Posted by Picasa

My first completed scrapbook page for 2010. Oh how I've missed scrapping! This definitely isn't my best, but it's a start. It's so weird going from a 5x4 canvas to 8x11. Thank goodness for sketches! Of course me being, well me, I couldn't make the sketch exact. I thought I'd scale it down from 12x12 to 8-1/2x11 since I'm just getting back into it.

This one was a nice one to ease me back into the swing of things. It's from Page Maps and it was chosen by my friend Banu for our Inspired Crafters Saturday Scrapbook Challenge. A few of us started a blog so that we can have our own challenges. I'm very excited about it! Banu has done an excellent job of getting things started and organized. Thanks Banu!!

I'll be back soon with more pages.
