I have hit a bit of a flat spot with my scrapping. Life has got in the way and I've lost my mojo. We've had computer issues too so it has made staying in touch and surfing really difficult. I have a heap of LOs to photograph for the Blue Bazaar challenge and I really want to upload them to get stuff happening again.
After our last crop I just hit a wall. I did so many pages there and ran the sketch challenge so I don't know what happened. I've created one page since then and it didn't turn out at all like I imagined it would. Argh. I hate it when that happens.
I will put Hannah to bed and take Jessica outside for a swing so I can get the photos I need. I just thought I'd post or it'll never get done.
Here is my loot for today. I've been trying to decide for months whether I should fork out to buy this stuff from Scenic Routes in the USA. They are closing down so all of their stock is really cheap. I finally did and am really happy with it. I'm not happy with the hugely expensive postage though. They charged me almost double what it cost them but I guess that's the price you pay sometimes for shopping online and overseas. It still worked out heaps cheaper than what I could have bought it here for. I love the papers and just can't wait to finish these projects to be able to get stuck into them.
I did this layout using some My Mind's Eye Papers. They are very bright and not what I would usually go for because I think they clash with photos too much. I think they work ok with these photos. I just wanted to do something a little different.
I've had this idea for a while now that when I finished a project I would use the left over pieces of paper, ribbon, flowers and whatever else to complete cards. That way I wouldn't have a heap of little peices of odds and ends and I would have a pile of cards. Well I haven't really been all that successful in this aim but I finally did get some cards done.
