More Scrappy Fun...

I've been on such a roll with scrapping lately! So proud of myself! Mostly, I'm in love with all the great sketch blogs I've been finding! So hoping they're loving my work too! I always used to think that I was less of a scrapper because I would do so much scraplifting... So sad to have doubted myself! Now I realize that inspiration can come from other people's work, and that is EXACTLY what happens through sketches! I've even started a new binder full of sketches that I'm collecting and trying out from great blogs and other on-line sources! So loving it!
Here is another one (sketch 25) from The Scrappiest... I used WeR Memory Keepers Tiffany line for it (another Personal Scrapper kit from awhile ago) and finally found the perfect pics from the wedding to go with!


I actually pulled out my Creative Memories circle cutters for this one! I have been staying quite linear lately, and this sketch helped me get out of that. I also got to play a little with the Stickles which is always fun!

I also did a LO for Nuts About Sketches. I really like this one, but I had much more trouble with the ribbon and stitching than I have before... Oh, well... Still fun to do! Love the colors on this one! It was another Personal Scrapper kit from a long time ago with American Crafts materials on almost the entire thing.

I'm also a little impressed that I've been able to get myself to not depend on cardstock for the backgrounds. I know it's a little hard to see on here, but there is a subtle pattern on both of these layouts.

Well, might take a scrapping break for a couple of days. I need to head in to school the next couple of mornings with the kids to try and get my room set up... Not dreading it, but this is the first year in quite awhile that I haven't actually been itching to get started. Hmmm... hubby says I can't retire for a long time, and I think my love for scrappy things (and clothes, and shoes, and Starbucks, and iTunes) make me need to keep working more than I'd like! :)

Til next time~ <3>
