I Scrapped!

It’s about time! As I’d only created two layouts this year to date, the other morning I just got to it. So glad I did! My new goal is to create one per week. We’ll see how I do! Tuesday morning I came across this lovely photo of my mom with three of her grandchildren and decided I’d make a tribute layout. Not a day goes by that she is not missed.

Anyhow…a great way to get scrapping is to start with a sketch and as I had just come across a great sketch on the Creative Scrappers site. I’ve been hoarding this gorgeous Webster’s Pages paper and it worked perfectly for the sketch so I got busy.

Now if you’re looking for a little bit of enabling today…I had myself a wonderful shopping spree as Ellen Hutson has a 15% off coupon this weekend through Monday. I bought some new Copics, Distress Crackle Paint and other yummy goodies. Can’t wait until they arrive! Discount code is thrifty. :)

Notes:

  • stamped elements are from my new On the Desk stamp set; missing you,  calendar stamp and mini journaling bracket
  • cherries and leaves detail is fussy cut from another Webster’s Pages paper
  • I bought the new I top by Imaginesce and put it to work on the paper covered turquoise brads
  • the border of the paper was embellished with rhinestone stickers along each side
