Completed MY Layout!

Took me long enough but I finally did it. Such a small thing but makes me feel like I accomplished something. Now all I need to do is take a picture and post it :) Will do that as soon as I get a moment with some good lighting. Now this is no great work of art, it actually took me more time to whine about it than to complete it. Now I will look for my sketch for my next one.

Scrap On Week 2

I picked my sketch and my picture. Seeing how it is already Thursday. I better get a move on.

Well I did it

Please excuse the poor quality of the photo, my scanner is not big enough and my lighting is poor. Although it is not my best work, I do do feel good that I finished it. Just used paper from my stash. I do not have a huge stash. I would have liked to use fabric flowers, but i did not have any so I just cut some out of pattern paper. I am looking forward to my next project.

Scrap On Update

So I found a sketch, picked the paper and printed the photo. Then I was browsing through one of my albums and realized that duh, I already used this photo in a layout. Just proves how long it's been since I did a layout. So now I have to decide--find another photo to fit the sketch and paper, or find another sketch. I am leaning towards another sketch and photo. So far I like this one, which is more of a scraplift. But the papers I picked may not go with the photo. If I am going to post a layout by Monday, I am going to have to get on the ball. Sure wish I did not have all that laundry to do.

Preliminary Sketch

So far this is what I am thinking of.
It was a lot harder to find a sketch than I thought. I had one in my head that I saw somewhere, but of course, I could not remember where I saw it. I finally settled on this because it is more important that I just do it. Otherwise, like many of my projects, it will remain an I want to do and not a done. I need to get in the habit of doing.

Getting My Scrap On!

As I mentioned before, I have been having a little problem with my mojo. A fellow blogger, the very talented Adrienne was having a similar problem and suggested a scrap-along. I have done crochet-alongs in the past and really enjoyed them. It also helped me to try things I might never have on my on. This is the first time, I am scrapping with others people. I have never been to a crop, although they sound like fun. I am excited to do this, so that is a very good thing. This is how it will work, and anyone who wishes to join us, well the more the merrier.

So I have some pictures printed out and I am going to scrap them.

Every Monday I will pick a sketch that I am going to use.

I am going to make it a GOAL to do ONE layout a week.

I want to try and do this for an entire month, so by months end I SHOULD have four LO's.

I will post the sketch that I am going to work from. Once I get my layout finished I will post it on her and a link to Adrienne blog where she will get them all linked in her post. So she actually has most of the hard work :)

This should be fun and I am really excited.

Here is a list of the ladies that are gonna play. If you want me to add your name to this let me know and she will get it up there:

Mrs. Saditty

I think this will inspire me to post more often and maybe even get my mojo back for my yarn crafts. I have been thinking I want to take a class at Michaels to learn to knit. I have tried it before but never felt comfortable enough to actually make a garment.

So let's see how this goes. I feel gunho now, but by the time the kids go home and I am done with dinner and dishes, well that is just another story. Will look for my sketch now. Will keep you posted :->
