In the mist of being busy...

finding little pockets of time to scrap does my soul good. Made some cards with my friend Erin the other week and like always, she inspired me to do a page after making these cards.

I liked how this page turned out. I think I may add some hidden journaling to it. This was the "secret dinner" we found out about last min at Downtown Disney for $10/person. Buffet at the 3 very expensive and very tasty restaurants there. Such a fun experience =)

I made this with the newly bought stash at the scrapbooking expo this last saturday. Had a grrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat time there too! I even got my friend Jocelyn to go with me and she got a bunch of starter kits! (if you're reading this, LET'S SCRAP!) So anyways... I've been trying to find ways to motivate myself and organize in a way that will keep me going in this anatomy class that's really stretching me like no other. For some reason, I had a notebook with a specific design in mind and went on a search for it at target and office depot, but when I couldn't find it I was pretty bummed. At the convention, I saw an altered composition book at one of the booths and although I've altered composition books before, it was like a fresh idea. So this is what I came up with sunday night. =) I like being able to put words on the cover to inspire me when I'm discouraged about this tough subject.

It's been a while...

It's been a while since I scrapped a page with pictures, let along a page with more than 1 picture! I had to warm up with a card... but with the inspiration of my friend Erin, I was able to scrap not just 1 or 2 pictures, but 3 pictures on one page & liked the way it turned out!!

Scrapping with Erin is always fun. The girl has soooo much stuff that I never feel like I'm missing anything I need to make a nice page or card. It ROCKS! =) (not to mention, she has MAJOR talent)

My Happiness Today is...

  • It's FRIDAY!!!
  • I had a productive week
  • There's nothing serious with Mike's injuried arm
  • It's the weekend... a much needed rest from a busy and productive week
