Not one, but TWO layouts! Yes, you read correctly!

The first one is a little one I scrapped last night. I was in the mood, and in the groove and this came together really quickly. I love those type of layouts. It made me realise that I shouldn't fight my scrapping style/instincts. I do love little layouts like this which have lots of white space and are cluttered with embellishments. Who am I to fight nature?

The second layout is one for the mid-monthly challenge at Ideal Papercraft. The challenge was to scrap travel or landscape type photos because if you are anything like me, they always get put to the bottom of the pile because they are just so darn hard to scrap! I love that I had a souvenir paper bag that fitted perfectly with this layout.  Here's what I came up with:

Nothing witty, just a layout for the new challenge up over at Journal Challenges.

The challenge was to not journal on paper or cardstock.

I have to thank Kate who suggested the whole stick thing. You know, she might make a scrapper afterall. ;) Thanks babe.

You know, for all the photos I take, I only have one thing on my walls. Just one.

This little picture of  a kiwi that Steve's mum gave us when we were in New Zealand last year.

I am scared to put things on my wall. Scared that what I put there wont look good. Scared the style will date. Just scared that I wont like it after I have gone to all the effort.

Watch this space. I am going to put my big girl panties on and start making this house feel like a home.

Afterall, we have been here almost 3 years now... it's about time.

I admit, you only ever see me when I have a new layout to share. Maybe if I was funny or quirky and made more interesting reading than I would post more. Sadly, I don't think I am all that interesting. So. Yes. Another layout. It was a quick layout because I thought it wasn't due until next week. That'll teach me to leave things to the last minute! It still took about 2 1/2 hours with a vision in my head. I fail to see how people can scrap a layout in a hour. The whole experience was way too intense for my liking!

I based the layout on this inspiration piece for the Cybercrop being held at Ideal Papercraft at the moment.
