Stop... take a breath!!

That's what I have to remind myself to do lately! I committed to so much and then fell so behind that I've had to really get down to it. This is what I have done over the 2 past weeks or so...

1. Recipe cards - done and shipped ... and forgot to take a picture :'(
2. 10 Swap Cards - done and shipped .. got pic ;)
3. 8 ATC's - done, but not shipped yet.
4. Card for newborn twins
5. DLO for a class - went really well and they all loved it :)

I am currently trying to finish off 2 mini books that have been sitting in a drawer for weeks!!

So here are a few pics of some of the above projects....

The Class Layout

Swap Cards
A little peek at my ATC

I also set myself a challenge one night, when hubby got a fire call. You know the freebie papers that come in magazines? .. well I had some and decided that I had to use them up before he got home, so I got 4 cards made. I still think they are awful, LOL!!

A million and one!

That's how many 1/2 finished projects I've got.... OK, so maybe that's an exaggeration but I've got 1/2 my swap cards done, 1/2 my ATC's done, two albums 1/2 done.. and a class layout 1/2 done! oh, I've even got 7 bday cards 1/2 done :(

I need to make time to sit and finish them all off, starting with the DLO for tomorrows class. Again, the nerves are setting in.... wish me luck, will ya?! I'm really looking forward to the crop tomorrow :) A whole afternoon away, with no kiddos!!! woooo hoooo!! Maybe I should use all those lovely hours to complete some of my 1/2 finished projects ;)

Boy oh Boy!!

I got into real scrapping mode last Sunday and decided to use the Papermania papers I had on starting a 'Boy' paperbag album. Mojo appeared out of nowhere and I completed it on Monday. Not sure whether to keep it or list in on Etsy...

So here are just a few pics of it:
The front cover

Love the robot papers :)

Journalling tag

Extra tags for more photos or journalling.

I really, really enjoyed making this one and I love the blues and browns in the papers. This is the first time I used rub-ons throughout an album and I can't believe how much they add to the pages. Time to invest in some more ;)

National Scrapbooking Day..

Apparently it's National Scrapbooking day in the States today. .. not here though (major sulk!) However, I did have a bit of a mini crop myself last night. I did 5 layouts (of course none of which are totally finished, journalling is my downfall) I did 2 layouts from the Pink Paislee 'Spring Fling' kit from Annamaries store and 3 layouts using the BG Sugared papers (2 of which are for a class this month, so no previews.. lol!!.

So here are the 3 layouts I did for the li'l princess's album.. I will add journalling to them.. I have the most wonderful journalling stamps, which are crying out to be used.

Finally got to the layout challenge which Mandy set the sketch for. We each did a different sketch today, just to be different ;) I used the Romani/Gypsie papers from Basic Grey and more of the delicious Primas from my montly kits on Cafe Prima :)

Sneak Peek...

Here is just a little peek at the cards which are gone to The Crafty Scrapper. I forgot to take pics of the last set I did so I made sure to get some this time :)
Now I can't wait to see what everyone else made!!
