So I have this habit of getting too busy with too many things to do… traveling, blogging, participating in creating costumes in next week’s IIDA fashion show, starting to volunteer as a mentor for HS students, doing laundry and dishes, etc. What falls to the side? My crafty adventures that I love. Since there are only so many hours in the day, and while my crafts are a priority, I typically end up cutting that out. It blows. I wish it could just figure out how to juggle it all.
Well, this all has been bothering me so I got up early this morning and finished a scrapbooking layout that has been sitting in a pile of partially finished layouts for months. That pile was a very sad sight every time I go in to feed and play with the rabbits.
Pretty simple layout with a patterned background page and some layered embellishments. Once I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use pockets that I had from some Studio Calico kits to hold journaling cards. From there I dug through more of my past kit elements and used an envelope instead of using a piece of cardstock or paper to layer upon. I added some brads, gems, washi, stickers, and alph’s. ta-da!
Just a few more sketches left to finish up the Kelly Purkey’s Sketch Book 4 class that I took this spring… spring. ugh! I am determined to do them all, eventually! Once the fashion show is over next week (wish us luck!), I’m hoping to carve out some time to be crafty more regularly. Gotta get back to scrapbooking layouts and Project Life. Stay tuned!
