Hello Friday scrappers - How are you all today? I had a LOVELY day scrapping (and eating) yesterday with Di, Jo, and the two Robyns who are new scrap converts. We had a lovely relaxing scrap, but didn't get TOO many pages done, (just a few) because we had to keep stopping for coffee, snacks, lunch, and sweet treats, and of course we talked non stop, and one can hardly talk and scrap at the same time. Well you can if you are gifted at multi-tasking, and I certainly am not!! If I'm thinking about where to put a letter sticker, I accidentally totally ignore the person who is talking to me and they practically have to yell at me, to get me to pay any attention to them.
So, I only got three layouts done but we had such a lovely day. Can't wait til we do it again. We decided scrapping is so therapeutic and relaxing. It's a feel-good hobby, that I'm sure puts endorphins (happy hormones) running through your system. Oh, endorphins are released when exercising, not scrapping.... well maybe there are scrap-type endorphins too...
These layouts today are not what I did yesterday, but they are new as I did them over the past week or so.
Many of you who have been with me for a while will know that I love to scrap children's artwork. And I am willing to give up a sheet of my precious 8.5 x 11 white bazzill cardstock to allow them to draw for for me. Lucy has been into drawing 'sea creatures' for about a year now, and she drew this for me about 6 months ago, just after she had turned 5. I think all the funny little details that kids include are are so cute. I love the turtle swimming towards the surface and that little crab on the sea bed is so sweet. Just love 5 yr old art. You can see is has taken me a while to actually getting around to scrapping.
The next layout was another for my youngest, Lucy, and it is about how she always loves a good makeover. Of course we don't encourage make up, but on the rare occasion that I let them do the whole makeover thing, they all have fun. Lucy actually does a pretty good job of it, but then it's into the bath. I love the concentration on her face as she looks in the little mirror. Made use of the new butterfly punch and I made the scallop edge on the American Crafts printed paper with my corner rounder.
Promise I will have a sketch challenge for next Monday or Tuesday!
Promise I will try to keep my promise.
Notice I added "try to" instead just saying "I will".
Really, I will.......try!
