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.
