A few days ago, the prompt for LOAD (Layout a Day) was to use only black and white products. I believe the myth we were busting was that all scrapbook pages have to be colourful. Well … I tried. I really tried to restrict myself to black and white. But the pink accents kept jumping into my hands.
No really. I would look down and think “how did that pink label get into my hand?” LOL!
Then I remembered that the wonderful ladies over at SWAT have a challenge this month to use black and white plus one! Bingo!! I embraced the pink, said a little apology to Lain for not following her prompt to the letter, and created this.
Today I am sharing my last project for SWAT. Yes, you read that right. I hinted that I was easing my Design Team commitments in 2014 and this is the second team I am stepping down from. It’s hard. I’ve been with Lanette’s team since the beginning but … they don’t call them ‘hard decisions’ for nothing! I have loved my time with this team and will miss the behind the scenes interaction and comraderie. I hope you all continue to play along with their challenges!! I know I will!
And speaking of challenges, we have a new one for you today. We’ve got a sketch with a twist for you. Here’s the sketch.
Okay, I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions any more. It was too depressing to constantly fail!
Since 2011 I have chosen One Little Word (check out Ali Edwards site and her class if you are new to this concept) and that has been better for me. Basically, I choose one word that represents what I want to invite into my life that year and when things get a bit tough, I can recall my word and refocus on what’s important. Makes the daily chaos bearable … most of the time! My word for 2011 was RELEASE as I was harbouring a lot of negativity I needed to get rid of. For 2012 I chose FOCUS and it did wonders for my scrapbooking! An unintentional benefit to be sure but I was grateful all the same. It worked so well I chose it for 2013 but less than half way through I had completely lost all focus and floundered for the rest of the year. Lesson there being, no matter how awesome a Word has been for you, chose a new one every year!
This year I have been thinking long and hard and have chosen SIMPLIFY. All that unfocussedness (yes, I am calling that a word!!) has got me down and it is time to regroup, take stock and make some changes! The girls over at SWAT have also been thinking about their Words for 2014 and we have some to share with you. Check out the link to see everyone’s pages. Here is mine.
Happy Saturday everyone! It’s time for another drill over at SWAT and today it’s one that’s bound to ruffle some feathers.
Okay, I couldn’t resist! We’re challenging you to use the sketch provided along with feathers! I purchased some Bella Blvd feathers a little while ago (tried out for their design team but didn’t make it so now I have a ton of Bella Blvd product in my stash) and knew this challenge was the perfect opportunity to use some of them up. Here’s a look at my layout.
Oh my. What’s this? A post on my blog?!
Yeah I know. I’ve been MIA lately. I actually have a ton of projects to share with you! Somehow whenever I sit down to write a post … I get sucked into something else.
Did I share this photo with you?
Happy Saturday everyone!
I have the day off and after swimming lessons and some house chores, I hope to get back into my scrap room. What about you? What are you up to today?
To get your creative juices flowing today I am please to share my latest layout for SWAT – Scrapbook Warriors Advanced Training. We’ve got a fabulous sketch from our very own Bev Code with the twist of having to use twine on the layout somewhere. Here’s the sketch and my layout.
Hi Everyone! Happy Saturday. Are ready for another Drill from your Scrapbooking Warriors over at SWAT?
This week we are challenging you to Stamp, Stitch and Spray/Splatter on your layouts. Here’s what I made.
