One basic scrapbook sketch -> Five Scrapbook Pages In Progress:
I've been busy living life and making memories. Last weekend I walked over six hours on Treasure Island Beach in the sand in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life; my team raised over $3,000.00! Go Team & A Big Thank You to all of our sponsors!
It is fine with me when life gets busy and scrapbooking gets put on the back-burner; but there comes a point when I feel the need to put scrapbooking back into my daily routine. It has been challenging since along with working, being a mom, and the cancer walk; I'm halfway through a Bikram Yoga 30 day challenge. Bikram Yoga class is 90 minutes, but getting there, doing the class and recovering from the class takes more like 2.5 hours. So my scrapbooking and blogging time has been limited lately, I needed a jumpstart. This is what inspired me:
Layouts by Celine Navarro of The Green Frog Studio: In order to make the most of my scrapbooking time, last night I took a basic page concept from Celine Navarro and used it to start 5 pages of my own. Celine's pages have a common feature in that she uses one large horizontally oriented photo so I went with that concept. I went through my digital images and picked five and printed them out so that they were 8.5 wide. Then I picked the top and bottom patterened paper. I adhered everything together with a glue stick and machine stitching. I also added the titles. Later I will add the embellishments and journaling. Here is what they look like so far:
Having these pages "half-baked" will make it easy to finish them. Having one concept to apply to several pages makes it easy to get several layouts started at one time. Getting pages done satisifies my desire to do some daily scrapbooking. I'll post the finished pages when they are done.
P.S. Yes, all of these pages use papers from the Die Cuts With a View "The Snapshot Stack" so these will be part of my series where I make 24 pages from one DCWV stack!
