Busy busy busy

     Yes I have been a busy little bee, scrapping to my heart's content. I can honestly say that my mojo has returned and I think maybe it brought someone else's with it.  I have been scrapping on the average of one and a half layouts per day all month.  So far I have finished 40 layouts. Not to mention my projects and cards.  I am quite pleased with myself. LOL

     Now I  have to admit these layouts are not the fancy loaded kind that I have been doing in the past but there is a reason for that, I just can't afford to do those layouts anymore.  Also, I have decided that they really don't fit in the albums properly and once they are placed in the albums, they just don't look so good because they become flattened.   They are fine if  you are going to be displaying them on a wall or whatever but they are just not for albums.

     I have also been trying to keep track of what I use in these layouts because I have been applying to different DT's and I know they like it when you list the matterials you have used.  I admit that sometimes I get so carried away with what I am doing that I forget to keep track but I am slowly learning and it is starting to come to me more and more as I do it.

     For this layout I used the last bits of paper I had left over from Basic Grey's Oliver line. The canvas banner is from Studios Poppies and Peonies. The ribbon, ribbon slide, chippies, and metal embellie are all unknown. The flower and butterfly are K&Company.  The alphas are Recollections.

     I love the way this one turned out.  The photo is so precious. I used Crate's Little Boy Blue collection on this layout. Everything is from that collection.

     For this layout I used Basic Grey's Serenade line, I love love love this line of papers.  I used a combination of flowers, Petaloo and Prima. Both the bling and the chippie are from the Dollar store. The metal embellies are from Momenta.  The doily was in a RAK that I received.

For this layout, once again I used the lovely Basic Grey's Serenade papers, I used a Martha Stewart edge punch and Momenta chipboard embellishments.

This layout is one of my favourites I think. I love the beautiful FabScraps paper. A mixture of Prima and Dollar store flowers with a few unknown stickers.

Thank you for stopping by, please leave a comment and let me know you were here.

Jackie I am loving the layouts and I so agree with you about adding less but honestly your photos stand out and are showcased and that is what scrapping is all about, showcasing the photo. Keep up the awesome work.
My favorite is the little boy with the ducks.
