bitten by the bug...

So after Scrap-a-palooza I had the bug to craft again!! Luckily I had the chance two weeks later at my local library. I have a room reserved there once a month to scrap the day away. A friend joined me for a few hours as well!! These are the LO's I got done! This is going to be a short post, I need more time to keep crafting! =)

Thanks for visiting!
Happy Crafting!!

2 months??!!!

Wow, has it really been two months since I've scrapped and posted? Time has just flown by and it was such a busy few months! My scrap stuff just sat down in the guest room feeling all neglected for quite sometime, and probably would have stayed that way a little longer if not for my awesome friend Jeanette! She decided we needed to scrap and bought us both tickets to Scrap-a-Palooza here in Springfield. It is a whole 13 hours of scrapping bliss, complete with a fully stocked store compliments of Scrapbook Generation, goodie bags, good food, free demos and tips from the great Allison Davis and so much more! It is quite the event and I was so glad we got to go! I managed to get quite a bit done, even though the first LO I did took 3 hours to complete…no it's not any spectacular feat, just a lot of hand stitching! =) So without further ado here is my work and I must say I'm pretty happy with most of it! (I know some of the pictures are tilted, I'm still trying to figure out the best way to photograph my LO's without that happening, sorry!)

I used a LOT of chipboard on this LO, it was kind of fun!

This circle was inspired by one of Allison Davis' great little techniques. She used scraps to cover different shapes to make all kinds of embellishments, I just decided to do it for a background. It's a great way to use scraps and I thought it went well with the picture theme!

This is my other awesome scrapping friend Alicia, we miss her, she's moved to Georgia =(

This is the LO that took me so long!! The stitches are also covered in stickles to give some sparkle!

This is me and my awesome friend Janette!!
