He he he...funny I am sitting here looking through some photos and asking myself why I don't scrap as much as I use to...I mean I really really use to like it...the styles and props that people use these days are just fabulous, but I must say it really isn't my style...maybe that is one reason...My style is so plain when it comes to layouts that I look like a beginner....then I asked myself...WAIT A MINUTE a beginner just cause I don't put a bunch of bells and whistles on my for now on, when I do a layout here and there...I AM GOING TO SHARE is my own style...and not worry that it isn't like some of the FABULOUSLY talented scrapbookers that sis has been telling me all along that I should scrap more...she is one of those FABULOUS layout can check her stuff out here...(love ya girl)...okay ENOUGH already....this layout uses a bunch of stuff from my stash...some halloween my minds eye and the happy Halloween border and line paper journaling at the bottom are from the cafe site...MY KIDS ARE SILLY...Up next is a sweet little card to bring some sunshine to my blog...the weather is so darn rainy, but hey I am not really complaining cause my plants in the front of my house and back are growing so nicely....can't wait to see it all in full bloom....This card uses the new ONE SPRING DAY set...this set has over 90 images in it...color and black and of my all time favorites....I will upload a video later....I added some glitter to the puddles and raindrops, rhinestones to the umbrella trimming and did some 3ding...
