I did it, I did it, I did it…yeah!

I did it, I did it, I did it…yeah!, she said in her very best Dora the Horror voice.

It's been a long time since I scrapbooked.

Which sounds fairly ridiculous considering I work on something every day…piecings, layouts, borders…but those are for clients.

I think it's been pretty close to a year since I scrapbooked any memories of my own.

My children have actually been complaining about it.

About two weeks ago, I started editing some photos, printing out sketches and making plans.  I'd hoped to spend all day Saturday scrapping, but that didn't happen.  I did end up having a bit of free time yesterday afternoon and I took advantage of it!

Here's what I got done:

Rainy Day

My favorite of the afternoon, although it photographed a bit odd.  And totally not where I'd planned to go with it – it was supposed to be a 2 pager,with a few more photos.  I like this better.

And I love, love, love the October Afternoon stuff, but especially the new Thrift Shop line.  I just ordered one piece of each paper, but I'm thinking I'm going to have to save up a bit for another order!

Just a little blurry detail shot:

Another favorite, this one using Doodlebug:

That 70's Girl

The colors are a little off in the photograph, but how fun is that paper!   And the newish Jack & Jill stickers…I'm in love.  I will most definitely be needing more!

Another detail – stitching, Prima flowers – so cute =)

That 70's Girl Detail

And my least favorite of the afternoon…although I do still like it quite a bit, I wanted to go a different direction and didn't have the supplies I needed.  

Easter Crutches

October Afternoon's Go Fly a Kite line…gorgeous.  With Scenic Route gone, I think they're going to be my new go-to line.  My original vision for this was to machine stitch some brown lines on the green polka dot paper and tie the buttons on top (which makes perfect sense in my head).  I couldn't find any green thread, though, so this is okay.   If  I can find my brown embroidery floss, I think I'll tie the buttons off with that and I think that might make me a little happier.

I've got photos and sketches for another dozen layouts – now to find some more time to play!
