A double pager

Did a double page layout this time, I seem to need it when I’m doing soccer pictures, I just take so many! I also don’t really like to cut my pictures down too much, sticking with a 4×6 generally, however, a few of these were trimmed down to fit. Here is the general layout.

I am still using up some really old stash items. One of them is this metal embellishment but I still like it, and wanted to use it, so I did. I hope you are doing that too, we will talk more about this in 2014, I have some stash using ideas.

Then this picture which shows the drops of mist I used on the layout. They added a bit of colour but also gave the subtle feeling of mud spraying during a soccer game.

I am happy to get some more pictures scrapped. I plan to do even more next year!

It’s 2009!

Another New Year, here’s hoping it’s a fabulous one.   I’ve had a nice break over Christmas, managed to lots of celebrating, eating, visiting and even some scrapping.  What a great holiday.  Here’s one I did for a challenge over at Love is in the details, another soccer layout, this one with a grungy look.

Here’s to a great 2009 everyone.

My first scrapbook injury.

Well, other than a paper cut that is. 

It was just so fast and so silly, I should have been more careful. I was busy creating a page for an online crop at Scrapshotz – be sure to check them out if you haven’t already – and I was using eyelets.  My toolbag was sitting on my desk, my scissors were in there, pointy side up, you can see where this is going can’t you, and I dropped an eyelet.

I bent down to pick it up, and poked myself in the eye with my scissors! Now it could have been so much worse, I was very lucky. I caught the corner of my eye, and luckily didn’t cut it.  I did go get it checked out and it’s basically just a bruise.  It really freaked me out though, so fast, and so preventable! That’s the bad thing, it didn’t have to happen. But I’ve learned a good lesson and I did manage to finish the page. Here it is.

I think my eye was still a little wonky because I notice the eyelets are not evenly spaced.  It will be a good reminder for me now!

Tin Box Creations

I made this layout using stamps from Tin Box creations. They were great stamps, lots of images too. I also used ribbon from SavvynSassy, the twill on the photo. I thought it went well with the sport theme. I did this layout based on a sketch by Vanessa, thanks Vanessa!
