A great scrappy night!

Woohoo! Three layouts in one night. Amazing! All of them are from Swirlydoos kits. It's pretty much the only supplies I have right now, lol.

This is Breezy last fall. I used the water distressing technique from over at Swirlydoos and I really like how dark this one is. It was my first attempt at this type of distressing and I hope to do a lot more of it.

This is myself on the same day as Breezy's photo. The dark purple flourishes are Dusty Attic painted with Smooch. The tulips are real silk tulips as opposed to scrapbook florals. I pretty much use a lot of different flowers and even the 'tree' like stuff in the layout above is from the floral section at Michael's.

And this last one is of Kevin at Atreyu's sound check last year. I just love all the MME papers in the Mon Amour kit. There's something about red, black and cream that just speaks to me anyway.

I think it's a pretty safe bet that I won't be reaching my goal this year. It was a little optimistic, I guess, but I thought Kevin was past all the medical instability and that things would settle down. Now I am just striving to at least reach 52 - that's an average of one a week so I'll settle for that.

Wish me luck!

A quick layout

I am in love with Moonshadow Mists! In the layout I did last night, I used three different ones and the effect is so cool. The photo here doesn't do them justice at all - the glimmer is so pretty.

Anyway, this one was done using two of the past Swirlydoos kits. I don't have much time to scrap anymore, but I loved using all the mists and inks on this one.

Obviously this one is of Kevin at the Tea Gardens (once again, lol). The title is to remind us of how long our journey to recovery has been (is still...really).
