I have been busy scrapping again the last couple of days (it's been very easy to stay downstairs scrapping a lot as Dale has been on a trip to New Jersey this last week). I got my swap pages all done and in the mail to our swap coordinator. I had to use the Stardust paper pack for mine. I think they turned out really well. I will have to show it to you again when I get my copy back and put some pictures on the page. I am also working smarter, not harder and this will probably be my club pages for this month.Then, our challenge this week was to use 5 patterned papers on one layout. They could be very small pieces, but non the less, you had to use 5. That really was a challenge, but I managed to do it. I actually even used SIX on one page! Take a look. I copied this idea right out of our Idea Book and Catalog-like I said, work smarter, not harder. I mostly used the Game On paper pack, but also a tiny little bit of black patterned paper from our retired Giggles and Grins paper pack.
I also used the Confidential Stamp Set-I love that clipboard! I used 3D foam squared to pop it up to make it look more realistic. Add in some hidden journaling, and my page was complete. I also used the Coffee Stain stamp set on my journaling-I thought it made it look pretty realistic. I just love how it turned out!
I can't wait to find out what the next challenge is going to be-I think I'm up for it!
Since Dale was now home from his trip to New Jersey, we decided to go to a movie last night. He's been wanting to see Gran Torino. I really didn't think it looked all that good, but said I'd go with him anyway (you know-time together). Well, I was pleasantly surprised-the movie was pretty good. Kind of slow moving for a while, but the story line was fantastic. The only bad part about it was the popcorn at the theater. I'm one of those people that HAS to have popcorn at the movies. This was the worst movie popcorn I've ever had! I should have complained about it, but I didn't-I guess I really didn't 'need' it anyway.
Anyway, it's off to my niece's birthday party today. She will be 8 on Wednesday. Today is also her Mom's birthday (my sister). Happy Birthday, Tracey! I won't tell everyone how old you are :)
Happy Scrappin' everyone,
