Greetings from Hell.......Grand Cayman!

On our cruise on the Glory, we visited Hell on Grand Cayman. You'll notice I was not influenced by the setting.....I'm the angel! Oddly enough, Hell is a post office there and refers to the area of volcanic rock. Artists have placed demon statuary throughout it as well. Fun pictures to scrap!

Okay, so I'm on a roll......two layouts in two days! Woo Hoo! These pictures were taken on our vaction to Ft. Lauderdale last year. Since I'm heading back there in a couple of weeks, I thought I'd better start scrappin' them!~ Used an eclectic mix of papers, cut the scrap borders off of a couple pieces and used them (that's why it's called scrappin'! ) added a little rick rack and a title cut with Life's a Beach, then embossed with a Sizzix folder. Pretty easy, but I like it!

My Return to Scrapbooking

I've made some new decisions in my life........some because I want to and some because I have to. My scrappin' is an area that has definitely needed to be re-evaluated. I've had some health issues which have made scrappin' difficult at best, and due to this, I've resigned from all of my team memberships. But even more than that, I found myself not wanting to scrap from the pressure of having to make a certain a certain due date...and good enough that the bloggin' world would like it. Compound that with not feeling well....and I just quit scrappin'. But I miss I'm back to doing it again. At least scrapbook pages. Cards are too much time....and I figure people just throw them away. With my limited time available to scrap, I'm trying to make it count so I'm doing scrapbook pages. And I'm doing whatever I want- good, bad, messy - whatever makes me happy. I might even use stickers!

Here's my latest project - my cute little daughter Kati. I was inspired by a wonderful sketch 124 from the Scrappiest. Used a bunch of random paper I had around, cut the background flower shapes from Paisley, added Thickers for the title, and used floss, glitter, and some blinged out ribbon for accents. I was so excited about scrappin' my way - I'm headed downstairs to do some more.

UFC Convention

I haven't scrapped in forever. I haven't made cards....or anything at all for that matter. The reasons are numerous, but I still really miss it. My dear husband was looking at photos and asked me to please scrap the ones of him and my son at the UFC convention last spring. Yep, you heard me right....husband asked me to scrap. Now normally, he hates this hobby....and teases me about it to no end. So his request got me up and moving.....and here's the layout. DCWV paper..rock star stack.....added MS star border punches. Lettering is Cricut Keystone (terribly underappreciated in my's great for plain ole' letters....) triple layered.....and George Stars. Simple, but I like it....hope hubby does too~
