LOAD #9 - The Hunt

I hosted a crop at my house today, and afterwards I decided that crops are a waste of time for me as far as getting pages scrapped. I am usually too busy talking or giving others advice about their pages to get my own pages done! I do love the girl time though, so I'm not giving up on them yet. I managed to finish this layout at the crop, at least. I realized I used a lot of discontinued product on it, but let's be real - CTMH's stamps and embellishments don't suddenly get un-cute just because they are retired. No, I can see myself using the stamp sets for years to come. Hopefully I'll use up the embellishments, though, because I do not want to be using them for years! I based my design on a Becky Higgins sketch from November 2009 Creating Keepsakes. Although I am not quite as sad about Becky not having a sketch column in CK as I would have been if I hadn't discovered Jeanette Lynton's pattern books, I will still miss seeing her monthly columns. Hopefully her work will still be featured frequently in the magazine.

This is adorable! I really like the look of the single "border" around both pages...very simple design, but the hand drawn line around your journaling and the cute ribbon make it special!

Here's mine for's very simple and has no real 'title' as it is just random pics from the rest of march that didn't have enough pics for a LO of their own!

Monica, the picture of your baby sleeping is just precious. The pictures may be random, but the overall effect of your layout is beautiful.

Caught up for nine days, now! Yay! I scrapped "surveys" the kids filled out on the way home from Hawaii, to list all their faves....

Totally forgot to post yesterday.

More on my New Orleans trip and Felicity!

Cheryl, all of have discontinued or even contraband to use up! Sometimes I am saving it for the right thing!

Cheryl Even said...

Way to go, Beth, getting all caught up. I was actually hoping to get ahead at my crop on SAturday, but that didn't happen - LOL! Hmm, Linda, you still forgot to post your link. Can we see, pretty please?
