ahhh... I keep forgetting to add titles to my posts...

Its been somewhat quiet in here for a while, but in the "real" world so much has happened! Only one hour ago I got the final clear for MHF! So, now its mine, in all its glory!! It feels great, and at the same time horrible. Its such a huge step on my road to recovery, luckely its will be an extreme makeover, just not done in one week, so I wont have to move out of the comforts of my family home just yet...

I´ve also been asked to hold my first demo next weekend, showing of how to use Shimmerz and Blingz. Thats pretty exciting, and I´m twisting my mind how to showcase them in the best way. I use my Shimmerz all the time, but its a bit different showing others how to use them!

I´ve done a few LOs as well, I can´t show all of them just yet, only my take on Julie Bonners March sketch over at the Magpie Club.


I wass struggeling with last months sketch, but this one just came together like something that comes together really easily ;-)
I´m doing a class over at Big Picture Scrapbooking at the moment called Go Hybrid! So, I included the tasks from the first week, which was to use a didi tag and do my journaling/title work on the computer. I don´t do tags that often, so I enlarged the tag provided in the class and used it as a photo mat. I made journalingstrips in PS as well, and printed it all on my brand new "brown paper packages" paper from Couture Cardstock.

 Title: Picking Blueberries
Journaling: Picking bluberries with Grandpa. I think this photo was taken in the fall of 95 or 96. Grandpa is picking, you are eating. Why I´m holding you I have no idea, but at least the weather was nice....

I find it really difficult journaling photos taken so long ago. I figure it is more fun that I write something. "at least the weather was nice" is such a standard sentence used in all kinds of situations, that it makes me giggle adding it to random LOs like this...



Materials used:
  • PP: Cosmo Cricket (?)
  • Cardstock:Bazzill: Swiss Dotts, Coutrue Cardstock: Brown Paper Packages
  • Embelishments: Webster´s pages: Ribbon, Prima: Velvet Heirloom Leaves, Vintage buttons colored with Alcohol inks, BG: opaline half pearls, assorted chipboard alphas colored with Vibez in Blue Jeans, Sande Krieger; digi tag (Borderline 5 digital kit)

Congrats on your place again!! :>

Great the ribbon, the leaves, and the papers you chose! I haven't gotten to scrapping old photos...YET....but, I'm thinking of asking family members who are in the photos, who were older than I was and can remember better for some ideas for the journaling. :>

Hope your week is going well, Siri! :>

Hey Siri, I think your layout is wonderful. I am totally struck by the colours, they blend so well with shrubs in the photos. I am also super impressed that you are scrapping all your old photos, I need to take heed and follow your example.
Huge congrats on the new place and on your teaching gig, very well done - you'll rock them whatever you do!! Have a fab weekend. Tara xxx
