It's Sunday and time for another Scrappy Sketch!! Cyndi posts scrapbook sketches over at her blog, The Scrappy Chick, and I'm lucky enough to get them ahead of time to play with and hopefully inspire you to scrap too?? Well if I'm not inspiring you, at least I'm cranking out some pages myself and finally making a little headway on my kids' books...! I have a big box of stuff to scrapbook about Carter's first year - all the various things I saved from the hospital, his first haircut, his first birthday, etc etc - but that box is still sitting at my sister's house! If you've been reading this you know that we are trying to sell our house - I purged a bunch of stuff out of my craft room to get ready for showings, including the majority of my stamps (waaah I miss them!), and most of my scrapbook stuff! I didn't think I'd be scrapping anytime soon. And... I thought we'd sell our house faster than it has gone (silly me!). So anyway - I still need to get that box back from my sister and get cracking on Carter's first year, but since I haven't done that yet, I instead chose to scrap our recent adventure into cookie making, even though I had already posted the photos here on the blog not too long ago. It was a fun page to make. One thing I like about this page is the little button embellishments I put together - stacking some clear buttons with heart shaped buttons that have been in my embellishment stash foreverrrrrr and tying them with embroidery floss. One thing I don't love is the journaling - I would love it much more if I printed it up on the computer - but I'm trying to just suck it up and write it myself, assuming someday Carter's grandchildren will enjoy seeing my actual handwriting... who knows, maybe by then nobody will even write anything by hand anymore... :-) So now that you're feeling all inspired to scrap, make sure and hop over to Cyndi's blog and check out what she did, and check out Lynn's blog too! Thanks for stopping by today!
