Hectic Week

Where has the week gone?
It's been hectic.

I'm really happy that some layouts from a couple of recent posts were accepted for publication and they have been sent off. A few of you have noticed one layout in particular that's gone and that was the TOOTH FAIRY CONSTRUCTION layout. That won't be published for some time because Scrapbook Creations are wanting it as part of an article I suggested I'd write along with 4 other layouts ... so maybe in the 2nd part of the year that layout will resurface.

I did create this layout last week and it slipped my mind to show it here. I challenged myself to scrap 'my new method' and that is where firstly I choose the embellishments I really want to use and make everything work around those embellishments. I'm really enjoying doing it this way rather than pic my papers and design then lastly the embellishments.

This layout used Making Memories 5th avenue range of cardstock scallop circle and word as well as that pretty metal clip. I also got to use an American Crafts rubon that was really cute and worked well under the clip.

I'm looking forward to a restful weekend - thanks always for dropping by and saying hello!

Love how you got so many pics successfully on one page. Where are you getting photos printed half size - is it Kmart?

Hi Leanne.
This approach to pages would really shake up my usual process. I'm a "photos-then-story-then-product kind of girl. It's always good to step outside your comfort zone. As usual, you have nailed it! Thanks for sharing your fabulous work. Love Anita. xxx
