Late to the Party

I've had lots of blogging posts planned in my head, but I've not gotten around to posting them. In between restructuring my whole schedule and professional life, setting new goals and researching school options, I've been a bit overwhelmed. I've also been doing lots of knitting and mindless blog searching, both good ways to quiet the mind. To top it all off, I feel like I've been fighting the ick too. I was feeling a bit achy and sore throaty by Sunday and that was before I was coughed and sneezed on by at least 5 kids this week. Now I'm doing my best to avoid full blown sickness.

So, I'm totally late to the Scrap for a Cure new kit party. I should have posted my layouts from French Kiss several days ago. I loved working with this kit. Seriously, once I started playing with it, I couldn't put it down. I made 4 layouts plus a little valentine's mini and could probably crank out another page or two with what I've got left. Here's my pages:


I really love the Basic Grey Origins line (paper above). I've always been sort of ho hum about BG, but this line has hooked me. There new releases look pretty amazing too.

I'm loving that I have all these photos of Miss Ella to scrap. Channeling my inner girlie girl for pages about her. This page was based on our February Sketch created by Jana Eubank:




This last project is a little valentine's gift for Shawn, so in case he decides to actually read my blog, I'm not posting the whole thing. I made it from 2 red envelopes, which I turned upside down, stacked and stitched down the middle and some collage press journaling tags. Here's the cover.


I promise to be back later with more blogging goodness, including some recent knitty projects and an update on my word of the year.

Happy Thursday!

Ahhhh!! I love your Eloise LO's! I need to catch up in her baby book. Maybe you want to just send me your adorable LO's & I'll add them to my book? Thanks. :)

Sorry I haven't caught up with you in person this week - maybe tomorrow? xoxo

Wow! You've really been getting your scrap on! LOL Uhm, I am in love with the Origins line myself. I could buy every single piece of it.

Hi Miss Red,
That mini book looks adorable, I can't wait to see the rest!
Super sweet layouts ... guess how many I've done this year? ZERO. And picture taking? Horrible ... I so have to get better at this. Thanks for always keeping me inspired!

I can't wait to see your knits ... I haven't picked up needles in some time, but I'm itching to try the February Lady Sweater, alas I have another on the needles that I should try to finish first. We'll see ...

Happy Weekend!
