Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Scrapbook Steals

Here’s another online weekend challenge from Scrapbook Steals. The theme was something in your life that you’re lucky to have.

For me, I’m lucky to have a house 1 mile from the beach – THE Atlantic Ocean! In fact, I drove by there today! It was so beautiful, breezy and just plain terrific to be around.

So, that’s my layout theme – lucky to live so near to a gorgeous beach.

My Mind’s Eye Breaking Free


MWM #28 and online challenge #3

One of the fun online challenges this weekend at Scrapbook Steals was a layout of a little known fact about yourself.

I decided to mention that I don’t like lobster which many people probably do not know. Lots and lots of people like lobster. Since I grew up in Maine, you would think that I love it. Not the case. I think it’s just too hard to get the meat, too expensive and just isn’t a great taste for me.

MWM #27 sketch and online challenge #2

Scrapbook Steals has a great Mid-Week Mojo sketch that I used for this scrapbook page. Yes, a REAL scrapbook page! I took a look at my stash and the pages that I was behind on and made a decision that I must scrap more! I will definitely still do cards, but my scrapbook page count needs to go up dramatically.

No stamping on this page, just some die cuts, chipboard letters and stickers. It was fun, relatively quick and looks pretty decent! I’ve decided that I’m going to put sketches with pictures together in an effort to make it easier to get pages done. The next step would be to pull the papers to go with each page, so we’ll see how that goes. I’ve scheduled 2 crops to attend within the next 2 months also. COOL!
