No Excuses.

I think I've come to terms with the fact that I'm just a terrible blogger. I never feel like my life in interesting enough to have anything to share. It's already tough for me to come up with journaling and ideas for new scrapbook pages to then come up with more new topics to blog about. So I thought to get back into blogging a bit, I would post some of my favorite scrapbook layouts from the past 6 months and kind of expand on what they're about or my favorite parts of them.

So this LO was my first experience using spray ink, it was way messier than I expected (I dont have spray bottles so I used a toothbrush to spray the paint). I cut out a stencil using my silhouette cameo (by far the best scrapbook purchase I have ever made), held it down and started to spray the yellow, then orange, pink and green last. 

Even though this isn't my favorite LO I've ever made, it's got the first picture my BF and I have gotten of just us. We've been together for over a year so that's pretty bad, but we're long distance so we don't get a chance to see each other often.

This was my first attempt at a whole patterned background made by myself. This LO changed my scrapbook style into what it is now, lots of geometric patterns, different coloured papers and lots of time.

I just really like how soft this page is, and how I finally mustered up the courage to use some of my favorite paper and still love the end result.

I love ombre and pink with green, so I of course love this. 

My most recent page, this took me forever and my fingers still hurt from all the hand stitching but I love how it adds to the page. I was really unsure with what I wanted to do with the left side of the page so i just started throwing things down and I kind of like how it all turned out.

My first "scraplift" (from one of Wilna's pages.) I adore Wilna's style and I'm so happy with how this page turned out.

This page was an entry for a Guest Designer spot at MME, still haven't gotten the results back but I'm hoping!

My absolute favorite page I've ever made. 

Well that's all for now! Maybe I'll make a list of the CHA products I really want for next time?
