Scrap, scrap, scrappin'

Hello everyone.

Hope you've all had a good start to your weekend. I'm a little tired after a late night of home shopping (Tupperware & jewellery), but I'm surviving! Bet you don't feel sorry for me, do you? Ha ha! Not only that, I had to be up early to drop the girls off at dancing.

Despite my fatigue, I still managed to finish two double page layouts that I started at the beginning of the week. They took me that long because there was so much cutting out, something I used to despise, but now I find that if I take it slowly, it's quite relaxing. Anyway, I did a little each day & now they are finished. I have to say that I'm really pleased with how they turned out.

Here is the left side of the first layout...

This is the right side...

And this is how they join together...

For this layout, I used Urban Oasis paper, Sahara Sand cardstock, Black Staz On ink, FiftheAvenue Floral stamp set & an non-SU alphabet stamp set, Eyelet Border punch,and black ribbon.

Now for the second layout...

This layout was completed with the Organis Outlines and Life Definitions stamp sets, Pink Passion, Wild Wasabi (retired) and Whisper White Cardstock, Wild Wasabi ink and non-SU paper.

See what I mean about all the cutting! Well, what do you think? I hope I've inspired you to catch up on some scrapbooking. I'm almost up to date but with Christmas and all the associated celebrations & activities coming around again, I have no doubt that I'll be lagging behind again all too soon. ;)

Take care.

Love your layouts they look fantastic! All that cutting was definately worth the end result. I no I used to hate it as well. I find it quite relaxing now!
