Scrap Space

No layout to post today... just some thoughts/comments on my scap space. I used to scrap in the dining room. This would drive my husband crazy... because I am not a neat scrapper. So we had made some shelves and a desk area along a wall in our bedroom, and I thought that would be enough space for scrapbooking. Well, maybe at the time with the supplies I had then. It seems as though scrapbooking stuff multiples on its own! Escpecially after Christmas. So I have been experimenting with different storage options and trying to clean our bedroom up - I've been taking photos and when I am complete - hopefully sometime next week - I will be sure to post them! Until then happy scrapping everyone!

Tropical Hawaiian Day

This is a photo of Chinaman's Hat on the winward side of the isalnd of Oahu. I have always thought that my husband really took a great picture of it but I have never scarpped it. As soon as I got my January kit from Scraps of Darkness I knew that I would finally be scrapping it!

Here is the close up on the bottom of the page. I used decorative sand and mod podge then I sprinked lindy's embossing powder for the green tones....

Grins and Giggles

Here is my first completed layout with the January Scraps of Darkness kit! This is a photo of my kids when they were 5 and 1. Were they ever that small? I figured the background and their aloha attire were perfect for this paper. The title I felt was appropriate - that's all they ever did at that age - Grin and Giggle.

Here is a close up of the title. I used sand, sea shells and coconut fiber from an old potpurri (did I spell that right?) set I had. The tiny tiny shells came with the kit.

Finally here are a couple of flowers that I colored with the awesome color option that came with the kit - They are from Lindys stamp gang OMG that is amazing stuff!!!

New Year Resolution!

Okay I know that it is late to start on my resolution but I figured that trying to start one on Jan 1st is just asking for failure. So I picked a random day to start! My resolution? Keep this blog up to date!!! I would really like to get my life a little more organized - my goal is to at least apply for a couple of design teams this year! I know that blogs are a big part of what they look for so that means I need to get this one in tip top shape! So over the next few days I will be adding layouts I have done over the past couple of months and hopefully some other fun and interesting things!! Stay tuned....
