Playing with paper

I mentioned earlier that I've been paper scrapping since I can't sit in front of my computer doing my first love - digi scrapping. I also mentioned that a few of my friends and I are going to be selling our wares at a little home bazaar. Put those two together and here is what I've come up with so far. A few waterfall albums.

I certainly did not make all of these this weekend, I've been sloooowwwwwllllllyyyy making them over the past few months. But as the day of the bazaar approaches I thought I might like to finish up at least a few of them.

I saw a picture like this once in a magazine and wanted to try it. It makes me feel like I accomplished something. ;P

I'm still planning on making some "real" pages as well, but my mojo is done for the day I believe.

Thanks for looking!

Note to self, Valentines Day is over

Time to update my blog. I haven't been sitting at the computer much lately. I haven't been sitting at all much lately. Back troubles are back and keeping me standing. I guess the timing is good because there is just so much to be done in real life.

I haven't given up on my creative spirit though. I signed up for She Art taught my Christy Tomlinson of Scarlet Lime. I haven't gotten all my supplies pulled together yet (excuses excuses) so I don't have my first canvas even started. But let me tell you she is incredibly inspiring. I can just see myself using digital supplies in the future, but I'll stick to my paper supplies for now.

A few friends and I are getting together and are going to hold another bazaar, this time in April. Up until now all of our bazaars have been in the winter so my main contribution was beaded ornaments. But who wants to buy ornaments in April, so I'm thinking I'll make some scrapbook pages that the purchaser can put their own photo into. I've spent an obscene amount on the latest Prima flowers and butterflies, but find myself just gawking at them and their gorgeousness. Too pretty to use, but I must.

So, put all of these factors together and it will equal a lot fewer hours for me in front of the computer scrapping. I do promise to show some of my "real" scrapbook pages - if I ever get any made. LOL

I have gotten just a few pages done over the past couple of weeks. So without further ado...
