It's been SO LONG!!!!!

YOUPPIE....I actually scrapbooked last night!!!! It's been a LONG LONG LONG time since I last sat down and really wanted to do it...but I started cleaning out my scrap space (AGAIN) last night, and I discovered this 2-page layout kit that I had purchased at Dawn's CAT'S KABOOSE
store in Strathroy :) I had done the first page (pictured here), but I hadn't finished the second page (with the tree) I sat down last night, and scrapbooked while I watched the Spice Girls Reunion special

I ended up changing the format of this layout, since I was using a vertical photo instead of a horizontal I made a few changes and also added my special touches ~ the LOVE script letters that I drew and cut out by hand :)

WOW...this is the layout I did last night. I had already cut out the background papers, the scallop at the bottom, but I hadn't even done the tree, flowers, etc... So this is what took me about 3 hours to finish ~ the cute little circles (all hand-cut and different sizes), the trunk, the flowers and the letters...which all had to be inked afterwards too!

But it was so much fun!!!! Here is the finished layout :)

*these two layouts were made from a pre-made kit, with Basic Grey Mellow papers (LOVE this line!), buttons, dmc floss, rhinestones (I added the brown Doodlebug ones)

I made these 2 recipe cards for a swap I participated in ~ we exchanged 2 cards each, and after we met up to trade them, we had 16 cards for our new recipe box/swap :) FUN, FUN!!!

Hopefully I'll be posting more layouts soon!!!
*** so sorry about the horrible pics...I cannot seem to find proper lighting in this house :(
