still up…

i haven’t posted any layouts in a long time! this is a quick one… house is quiet… and i have been so tired tonight and just totally decided to fight off sleep cause i felt like scrapbooking. i did this layout – just took a few minutes… i snapped this photo really quick tonight for an event tomorrow, and it just made me want to play. new photos do that… i have a bunch of new photos… i even finished a mini book tonight. anyway- my desk was (still is) a big mess, and all this stuff was spread out all over: dark brown cardstock, scraps of scenic route paper, a sheet of pink silhouette flowers and some chipboard letters. it was funny… cause i printed this photo, and while i was printing off the rest that i needed and i set it down on top of all the stuff… i walked away and came back and in this freaky way, as i saw all that stuff sitting together (mind you- it was a major disaster- quincy was the last one “scrapbooking” in that spot!) i totally saw this page in my head. it was so cool! see, i didn’t even cut that white border that scenic route has on the bottom of their paper (that you are SUPPOSED to cut off)… on the desk, the white edge was still on and there were a couple of the flowers laying there. so i just whipped it all together. i really love these silhouettes. – (the pink flowers are the silhouettes- and also the circle under the chipboard “m” is a silhouette)- they are acetate diecuts, with a bit of dimensional printing. they have such great layering possiblities. i Shine
i may have gone a little nuts with the jewels! but so cute.
well, i am going to sneak into bed! sweet dreams!

    My LSS just got a huge shipment with your new stuff…and I went crazy and got *everything*, one item of everything! I simply couldn’t decide which kind of item of each new thing to get so I just got them all. Now I can’t wait to go scrapbooking with all the new goodies!

    Hey girlie – darling LO – can’t see it clearly when I enlarge so email it to me — just darling! Makes me want to hit my scrap table — I hate when I have the urge but then not the time. It’s “star lighting” night here in Castle Rock – big downtown event! (Love the small town feel here!) Now its off to a neighbors for post-star lighting hot beverages! Chat soon!

    re the very first comment here from me: my apologies heidi if this isn’t your daughter. i just realised her name starts with a “q” not an “m” so i could be a bit confused!

    Love the LO, especially the jewels (they’re my absolute favorite)! And, I can’t wait for the silhouette flowers! Ah, to be so lucky to get first dibs on everything 🙂 !! Hope you get some rest!

    What a beautiful layout this is! I love how you described seeing it in your pile of stuff laying there. Someone told me when layouts come together like that it’s called a “flopportunity”. Gotta love when that happens!
    ps – a girl can never have too many jewels!

    That is awesome! Can’t wait to get my hands on some of those silhouettes!!! LOVE when a page happens because the right stuff is just there. =)

    Don’t you love when that happens? Just once in a blue moon for me, but oh so exciting when it does! Thanks for sharing the process AND result!

    Gorgeous! And I am so jealous; I got my stash out today, all over the bed (I don’t have a scraproom) and looked at it, looked at some photos, and really didn’t feel inspired at all. I just can’t do it at the moment. Then I tried some Christmas cards, and it was worse! So, instead, I am going to do some Photoshop layouts this week, to at least tap into some of my creative juices…. Keep showing us yours 🙂

    The LO is really very simple and beautiful. But wow if this is Q, she has really grown much faster than I’ve been noticing (big girl teeth?!). Seems like a diff. child to me….
