Finally scrapping in 2012!

Ok so after the marathon scrap sessions I had in Dec to finish off 2 altered trays (the 2nd one I still need to post) and 2 albums that were each around 70 pages, I swore off scrapping! Never wanted to see my paper trimmer or ATG gun again! Then I decided that maybe I would just reorganize and purge my supplies since my mojo ran away with no thought of ever coming back. Well, after going through a couple bags and finding things that I forgot I had bought (don't you hate it when that happens? and I think it means I have way too many supplies again...), I got a small itch to use a Simple Stories line I had found. But, even finding the stuff, I still did nothing...until today! I logged in to A Cherry On Top and a few of the girls had a time challenge going. Basically, you had 1 hour (plus 10 min to download) from the time you said you'd start, to create a LO. I decided this was exactly what I needed to get going again, and away I went. I managed 3 LOs this afternoon and I am happy to say that it felt good to be scrapping again!

Using the Simple Stories Destinations line as well as some misc embellishments from my stash I did the following LOs from my trip this past June to see my friend Jenn:

On this LO, I used some Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey. I made the border by layering 2 pieces of 7Gypsies chipboard and adding some bling.

I'm happy to be scrapping again, especially since these are LOs that I've wanted to get done for awhile now!
