(I picture myself on a big empty stage yelling it at the top of my lungs with my arms stretched out wide.) Hahahahaha. That feels so silly to say but, hello world. Finally, here I am joining the scrap blog scene. I feel like this has been a long time coming. I follow so many lovely crafters and Mommies regularly. It just makes sense to join in the fun! Actually running a blog of my own and figuring all of this stuff out may take some time. Hopefully my attempts at navigating this project will go well....We'll see, I guess. Just hang in there if you are joining me early on. There have already been some bumps in the road. You would not believe how long it took me to figure out something so simple as a background for this thing! They started talking about gadgets and footers and headers and so on (By "they" I mean the screen). Sheesh! It's enough to make a usually tech-friendly girl run screaming. (I did a few times, by the way.) But here I am. So here we GOOOOOOooooo.
I figured my first post should include a scrap project since this IS the main reason I've started the blog. This is a layout that I completed in one hour during National Scrapbook Day this year. It's based on a sketch by Lisa Day from a challenge with bigpictureclasses.com
Typically I do not work from other scrappers' sketches. This time, well let's face it, I was going for the prize. I didn't win. Boo. :/ Even so I was inspired to make this layout....so, that makes me happy. :)
I loved that it enabled me to use a long title. At last I was able to use that lovely teacup embellie from American Crafts along with these silly photos of my babe. The patterned paper is by Basic Grey, stickers by Heidi Grace, and of course Thickers letter stickers. Love it. BTW the cup was empty when she got ahold of it that day (Phew! Daddy won't have to be mad about that one!)
Thanks for stopping by my little 'ol blog. Come back soon. I always find some scrap to write about...
