seeing a dent!

ok… it’s after 2pm. i am still in my PJ’s… got up this morning and came straight into my studio and started scrapbooking. i am not sure how the kids got breakfast, but they weren’t asking me, so i wasn’t asking them! the kids have spent all day playing outside and i have just been working away. eric has been shopping online and i think that we watched like 5 episodes of “mythbusters”… not very inspiring, but the fact that everyone is occupied is enough inspiration for me!

so i am starting to see a dent in the stack of pics from the NYC trip! especially with today’s contribution of 2 spreads; 5 photos on each for a grand total of 10 photos knocked out today! (and again, it’s early afternoon!) thanks for all the comments and compliments! like i said, nothing like a good challenge to get some creativity flowing!

“underground inspiration” uses: photocorners, touch of tape, a”credit card slide”, more journaling spots and block letter stickers… i cut them down right around the letter so i could fit more on! cut up a file folder for this layout as well as some edge of an old map. i really do love the subway! almost as much as i am loving the journaling spots!

“family history” is a layout about meeting my cousin that i was separated from due to the divorce of my uncle from her mother. i wasn’t really sure how deep i wanted to get on this layout, because there is a lot of thoughts and feelings here.. but i decided simply to make a fun, happy layout that captured what an enjoyable experience it was to meet up again! here i used my own paper… from the LIMITED paper designs that we released at memory trends; more “credit card” stuff (a ribbon slide and a paper slide–they are the ones that say “smile” and “beautiful smile”–also released at memory trends); silhouette shapes under the chipbord letters for the title; ribbon; brads, photocorners, tape and *good news* found more pink jewels! – oh, don’t forget the journaling spot!

i think that the journaling spots are my new fAvorite item.

    Thanks for the inspiration— love your style! I’m loving the pink flower paper and the accents you added. I’m hoping that the paper line won’t be in LIMITED supply– but we will see it in stores soon?!

    You are so on a roll woman!
    Okay I have to tell you…I’ve been on the hunt for Crazy Life…couldn’t find it anywhere in Michigan (I look on all our trips!) so I was totally bummed UNTIL I went to VA for Thanksgiving and found it there!!
    Well you know I totally stocked up, bought everything they had! And packed it up in my suitcase….which because of weather issues is now stuck in Minneapolis until the end of the week! Darn it!!! My creative bug will have to wait!

    Wow – such production! I went away for a week’s vacation and came back to not only some nice blogging, but mega LO’s. TFS all that goes into the process for you — it’s fun to hear how other’s think/work on things/work things out! Great LO’s!
