A page of super-quick-ocity

Over the Christmas holidays, I had 2 weeks off (yay for being a teacher!) and while I was avoiding postponing the marking I brought home with me until after Christmas, I spent several days just sitting in my craft room absolutely lapping up the free time. Boy, did I ever need it! I had been exhausted, I was counting down the minutes until the holidays began for about two weeks prior!

Here's one of the eight or so pages I completed over the holidays. It was nice to think back to the summer as I sat in my craftroom with the temperature outside dipping down to somewhere around -35C. I had a really busy we were at a Tragically Hip concert. My boyfriend is a radio DJ so we often get tickets to great shows, and this one was awesome. Seeing the Hip at sunset on a warm summer day is like living the Canadian dream, don't you agree? :) I'm going to give this Scrap In Style widget a go...the hope is that it will produce a little mini slideshow and provide a link to my SIS portfolio. Here goes nothing!

The paper is from Bo Bunny, and I was super excited to use the magic mesh that had been sitting in my stash for a whole year. The chipboard letters were mauve and I covered them with a black-distressed-splotchy rub on which I was so glad to use up as its been in my stash for about 4 years! Hooray for using up old product! That reminds me...I need to start planning my entry for the Scrap Your Crap design team call!


PS: It is just me, or is "here goes nothing" a really strange expression? What the H does that even mean?! Although, I guess if the link doesn't work, the expression will be rather fitting...but I digress. ;)
