Finally the sun! no rain for 3 days now…oh bliss…could live without the wind but it beats the rain.
I spent a productive weekend, I downloaded a demo of Cricut Design Studio on friday night and spent the weekend playing with it to see if its something I might need and it most definitly IS. I had a ball cutting titles and borders and anything else I could think of lol, and discovered that using Glimmer Mist on titles looks great lol.
I also did this layout for the Sketchbook SBO fortnightly challenge and one for the celebrity challenge from Robyn Werlich which I still need to take a photo of. Its good to feel inspired again. Cruising around the Sketchbook Forum does that to me, its fun to check out all the challenges and take part. I havent been doing to well keeping up all the forums I’m a member of so I have decided to stick to just a few, SBO, Sketchbook and Scrapbox. I am trying to simplfy my life.
I have one challenge to do and thats the september challenge from Scrapbox I love the sketch, its so cool.
I had a bit of set back last week, I finally got brave enough to submit a layout to Scrapbooking Memories and it was rejected. Oh well it was only the first time and I enjoyed doing the layout and I have to remind myself that is the reason I scrapbook….not to get recognition but because I enjoy it. This is the layout, the photo was taken when Katie was sick a few weeks ago and the journalling tells the story of how her eyes tell me how she feels.
