HAPPY SCRAPBOOKING DAY!

HAPPY SCRAPBOOKING DAY!

Who knew when I dabbled with card making in 2004 that I was on my way to a wonderful journey of meeting fabulous people, making the closest of friends and finding a passion for paper that I didn’t realize I had!

I should have known though…as a child I remember going to the little print shop across from my school and asking for paper scraps! I do remember how much joy they brought me! That my friends…was many moons ago! Fast forward to today...

I want to share the layout I created for CreativeScrapbooker Magazine’s National Scrapbooking Day event! I used papers from the “Adventure” collection from Wild Whisper Design! If you head over to the CSM blog, you can see more detail shots from the layout!

CSM April Sketch

Just a quick share today of the layout I created using Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s April Sketchy Challenge. Once again Kerry Engel designed a fun sketch to work with.

I had the opportunity to play along with my good friends and CSM team members to do a 3 designer / same product challenge. You can see their finished projects on the CSM blog.

Here is my completed layout using the Multicraft product provided and the April sketch.

catching up...

Man!  Here I go again starting a blog with where has the time gone! Life just seems to be plugging along these days, weeks, months…it’s busy!

Work fills much of my time. When I’m not at the dental office, I can be found helping out behind the social media scene for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, working on scrapbooking or card projects for the blog or next issue! It’s a pretty fun “gig” and a FUN team to be associated with!

Here are a few projects I’ve done in the past months!

I've been dabbling with some art journalling and enjoying the process...so much to learn!



Stayed tuned…maybe I’ll be back before the end of the year! LOL. Here's a link to my Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Sketchy Gallery:
