Where is everyone???

I am going to try something completely out of my box. I have a hard time when the pages that are are side by side in my albums do not match. So I am going to try to do the Mother's and Father's day pictures on totally different papers. Even though my son has on the same shirt, which I could pull the orange into the layouts, I won't. Wish me luck!!

Hi! I've been so busy cleaning and organizing my scraproom, w/ other challenges - including blog challenges and hosting a challenge, so I haven't got to this one yet.
But it is next on my list and I know what I am going to do...something totally new, and scary, to me... yikes!

This was my personal fav Lo that I did on my scrapping weekend...I am not a big stamper and I stamped to practice this weekend...this is stamping all around the photos and I really liked the way it turned out...I really enjoyed doing this title too!...

Trashed my room the other day trying to reduce the amount of pattern paper that I know I will never use. And getting rid of some of the scraps I have kept - I mean really do we need to keep and 1 inch by 2 inch square of blue CS?

I'm still here. I'll try to get caught up on love tomorrow.

I've got a layout on my scrap table right now that is "finished." However, it's really irritating me because I don't like it. Contemplating taking it apart & going again. I loved the pictures & wanted this to be a layout I love, but we'll see! Right now, though, I've got side tracked by doing some extra deep cleaning of my house. Lordy, it was needing some attention bad!

Oh man, I did the same thing yesterday morning. I have a small shampooer that I use when I don't want to drag out the big one. I had it out just to clean up a few small spots, ended up shampooing the stairs. OMGosh!! They were bad!!

Kim...LOL about those teeny pieces of scrap paper!...
Judy....there are times I am not too crazy about a LO...I just can't re-do myself for some reason...I just don't know why...I just file it!!!...fast!....

I usually won't re-do layouts either unless I ABSOLUTELY HATE IT! Otherwise, like Marci, I just look at it, go "ehhh" and file it away fast!
But your know what's funny? Some of those layouts I wasn't too happy about I look at later and I think to myself "oh, it's actually cute" or "I like it after all"! Sometimes they have to just take the time to grow on you, I think...well at least in my case.
Oh and I keep just about all scraps even the teeny tiny ones...I always seem to find a use for them eventually. But if I don't save them, it's not a big deal either because they ARE teeny tiny. It's the bigger scraps I can't part w/! Feels like such a waste of scrappy paper!

Marci, I love every one of those layouts! I can see why they would be your favorites!

I'm done with the layouts that were on my table. I'm still not 100% pleased, but I did cut the stamping off of the bottom, adhered it to a new page, put ribbon along the cut & called it good! I'll post it maybe tomorrow just because I want you all to see the pictures, not that I'm so thrilled with it!

Crayons By NMscrapper

I loved this one while it was still in my head, and it all came together just as I had imagined. I wanted a warm and sort of old fashioned feel because coloring and coloring books have been a part of childhood probably forever. The pic of Abbigail could be any little girl anywhere. The slightly "dirty" doily is there as a reminder of dirty faces and skinned knees that go hand in hand with crayons.

Hello girls!

Hope you all a nice Thanksgiving. Ours was quiet and we like that.

I spent today cleaning so tomorrow I can finish the layout that has been on my desk for over a week now! At this point I will it because I finished it!!!

So I am wondering would you ladies be interested in doing this again? I would like to tweak it a bit. Like maybe having little challenges, optional of course, like go through you stash use something that you have had for a really long time. Or use a certain color.

I got two more done this weekend for other challenges so I am pretty happy.

Only 9 more to go to meet the yearlong album challenge (need to reach 50).

Go Doreena and Kim. You can do it.

I was putting the finishing touches on my layout when disaster struck! I wound up making a total mess on my layout!

I hid it best could but now I'm bummed!

Oh well, stuff happens.

I'll see how it looks tomorrow and if I can live w/ it I will post it.

That's exactly what I said!!!
I almost cried.
But I held it together after the few... "No, No, Nooooooos!"
After I attempted to fix it, I hid it away.
I will look at it again tonight.

It sucks!
But it's my own fault.
I tried a new technique (again nothing big) but I liked it so after I was done adhering everything down, including the pics, I decided it just needed a little more....
I should have just left it alone and tried "a little more" next time!
Ughhh...I even told myself "don't do it" but I didn't listen
::
Okay enough of being bummed...
Time to move on.

Awesome!
Sometimes I just LOVE technology! The ability to get your hands on something you normally couldn't....like pictures you didn't take.
Now you can get them e-mailed to you, texted to you, or get them off a social media site!

Okay here is my layout...
I tried misting for the first time.
Which I enjoyed, for the most part...

Lets just say I have learned what NOT to do, LOL!
Read my description for info on my disaster experience.

OMG! You sprayed the wall?!?!?!?!? LMAO!

That is hilarious!
I did okay but I got cocky and thought...oh this is so easy! So I decided to add more after my stuff was adhered...
What was I thinking?!
Well thank goodness I had 2 copies of the pics and I was able to save the layout w/ my cover up pieces!

Mother's Day By KimKV

I like this spread because my son made guacamole for me and that is awesome. I also like how that striped paper that I thought I would never use worked on this spread!!

Father's Day By KimKV

I like because I am very happy with how the background shape turned out and that I managed to weld the year together on the first try.
