So Long...

I haven't scrapped in so long. I just haven't felt inspired in the least to do anything in my scraproom. But the other day I got my Swirlydoos kit in the mail and finally - FINALLY - something made me want to scrap! This kit is just gorgeous and it is so my style.

I actually designed two layouts today, but it was dark by the time I finished the second so I don't have a photo of it yet. Here though, is Breezy and Kevin as we were heading to the stage for Kevin's Purple Heart Ceremony:

This photo was taken by Rebecca Droke of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and is one of my all time favorites.

So this layout is the first time I have ever used Dusty Attic products. I AM IN LOVE! I took the border that is along the bottom of the photo and painted it green first, then dabbed some copper over that and topped it off randomly with some Tim Holtz "Frayed Burlap" distress ink. You can't really see the effect, but it looks great in real life.

This second layout is one I did back when we first got here, but I never uploaded it. Honestly, I don't like it. I imagine I am going to end up either adding to it or starting over. I just think it's top heavy, but I can't find anything in my stuff to throw on the bottom. If I were home it would be different, but I am very limited here in Texas.

So anyway, here it is:

This is my niece, Christina, back when she was younger.

Tomorrow I will add the other layout I did today and who knows...maybe I will even do more before uploading :)
