A layout. I made this.

So I went to a crop with my dear friend Adrienne in July.  And in one day?  I completed six layouts.  Six.

That’s a new record, dude.

One was the “Blending In” page I showed you the other day. 

And to continue with the animal theme, here’s another:

That’s my dad with his dog and mine last summer on the trails near where I grew up.

This one started with this sketch from Creative Scrappers:
I even included some Jennifer-style scattered do-dads, stitching across my letters, and random cross-stitches.

Seriously, that woman has affected my scrapping in a big way.

Oh, and in a little way, too.  Those clouds up there?  Are from this kit I won from Jen and her sister Susan who are wicked embellishment-makers.
Wait.  I mean the they are wicked at making embellishments.  As in cool.  Not that the two of them are somehow wicked.  As in nasty.

Anyhow, it’s a layout.  And I made it.  And Jen and Susan helped.


  1. Nice do-dads! Jen IS good at scattering stuff, isn't she? Six LOs? Wow, I don't think I've ever done six LOs in a month, let alone in a day! LOL I like the way you did the white title. The clouds look nice too. I haven't used any of mine yet - probably because I never seem to do any actual scrapbooking! I'm more of a "scrappy supply collector". If the scrapping industry ever dies I'll be set for ages!

  2. You is on a scrappin' roll!

    I must tell you: when you said "laboratory", as in "LaH-BOr-A-Tory" I nearly died.

    WE have the same brain you and I. I totally heard Ross' voice in my head. You know? When he's speaking with an english accent? "In the laboratory. . ."

  3. Well I just totally love this LO!! The embellishment is just perfect! hee hee I may be biased. ;) The scattering is spot on and I am loving all the hand stitching. I really like the addition of the tree die cut to the emptier space of your photo. Your layering is terrific. Okay, now I have to use my clouds. They are still sitting there forgotten. (Keep in mind that any inspo that came from me, I probably stole from someone else! ;) Gotta love the sharing in this bloggy world of ours)

    As far as classes at the LSS I am probably the wrong person to ask as I never do crops or classes. There is a store quite close to TM called "Scrap-A-Lot" but based on the kits I have seen on the wall there may not be much insp there for you. Not like the things that TM creates.

    I am really loving the Studio Calico kits and I think I might continue to get them for a bit. There is so much in them that is exclusive to their kits. I always love the palettes too. They just get my mojo going.


If you type something below it will make the sun shine and the flowers bloom and all the world's children sing hand-in-hand. If you don't, someone, somewhere, will kick a puppy. You don't want to have that on your conscience, now do you?
