Random page

I found these pictures in a box and knew I wanted to scrap them. I love the way the page came out. I wanted to make it look old and vintage, because that's the way her house was. :)

I also wanted to mention something cool that I found. Beverly Todd is about to turn 40 and she's having a 40 days until 40 celebration. It looks like a lot of fun :)

I would love to someday be able to take pictures like Rachel Ludwig, Maggie Holmes, or Tara Whitney, but I don't yet have the people skills. I'm very quiet and shy and I don't even really know anyone here in TN yet and we've lived here for 6 months. So while I'm waiting to become an amazing people photographer, I take pictures of things around the house. Because I'm bored. And one day I hope to get a bigger and better camera because this one just doesn't capture things like I want it to.

Two new pages

I did the Family layout for Color Combo Challenge #77 over at Color Combos Galore and the other was Challenge #20 at Random Chaos (which I'm late for :/ ).
I did the Summer 2006 layout for Sketch 90 at Pencil Lines and for Calalyst Fifteen at Creative Therapy.

Yay for multitasking! haha.

Just a couple of layouts

These pictures of my mom and niece were so cute that I had to scrap them. These were photos from the birthday party for my two nieces that have birthdays like 2 days apart. I had a lot more pictures, but I didn't want it to look too busy. I kind of like the way it turned out.

Color combo challenge #75

I really liked the colors for this color combo, but I had a hard time using them together. But this is what I came up with. I also used this for the Scrap mojo challenge #16 where we had to use the phrase 'it's a good thing' and use a stamp. The little pink piece pulls out and has a couple of rules to live by on it.

Color combo challenge #74

I'm really glad I found the Color Combo blog. It forces me to think outside the box and use colors that I never would have thought to put together. These were more pictures that I had stashed in a photo album and now they're on a scrapbook page that I really like. The only thing I'm not sure about is the button pattern up in the corner. I couldn't decide between doing that and emphasizing the corner of the black paper. *shrug*

Signs of Spring

Finally got to the scrapbook store and bought the letters I needed to finish this layout. I really like the way it turned out :)

So the day we went to get my ring sized, I tried the ring on again and it fit. I guess my hands were swollen when I had tried it on before. But my hands are swollen a lot since I use them a lot at work. I haven't been wearing it to work to make sure it doesn't get messed up so I put it on today and I had to force it on. It won't be that expensive to size, so I think we might do it anyway.

I think I might have to take a nap today, too.
