A Year in the Life of an Art Journal

New post is up! Yay! The new post over at the A Year in the Life of an Art Journal is up and here it is:

THE PROMPT: Say something to yourself, 10 years ago. Write a letter, write a sentence, write one word. Just think back to YOU 10 years ago, and say what you would tell YOU if you could.

THE STUFF: Photo(s) of YOU 10 years ago. If you don't have one easy enough to get to, then just use something(s) that reminds you of YOU back then.


Let's go scrapbook with the technique, and use something you used on pages 10 years ago.

While I cheated and used a picture that was only a few years old (I couldn't find one that was 10 years old!) I enjoyed reminding myself to relax, don't worry and be happy!! I am often high strung and it doesn't take much to set me off into a tizzy! I wish I were more laid back and it's something that I continuously work on. Here is my page:  

Happy Friday everyone!!!

I actually did these layouts last weekend but as usual forgot to post until today! haha I was just happy that I got to actually scrap 3 layouts as I am ridiculously behind!!! Not only have I not ordered pictures since February but I haven't even scrapped last Christmas yet. Good grief. Plus I joined another ATC swap that I haven't even made cards yet for. Tomorrow is my scrappy day so I'm hoping to get a big dose of mojo!!
I used my new stamp (well I've actually had it for a while and finally just used it!) that looks like a poloroid and loved how it turned out! I can see I'll be using this stamp again in the future!
For this layout I had alot of pictures of the grandkids and because I'm so behind did a collage.
This one is one of my favorite layouts. I love the stamp of the woman drinking and had to use her in this layout of me drinking! haha

How about you, are you behind in your scrapping?

Crow cards

I joined an ATC swap over at ATC's for all and theme was "As the crow flies". I had fun using a 3 different crow stamps and made these cards

I can't wait to see what I get back in the swap! I also made these  just because:

I FINALLY made a layout (I'm really, really concerned about how I've fallen so far behind, it's as if I'm losing my drive to scrap....which better not happen because I have a ton of supplies and could scrap until the cows come home!!!) and made this one about my sweet pea
How cute is he????

Last night my friend and I went to see Faber Drive and Simple Plan in concert and it was soooo good!!!! Of course I had to get my concert T's (this is the year of the concerts for me!!)

 How fitting that Simple Plan should have a skull on their shirt?? love!!
 Faber Drive opened up for Simple Plan and was amazing, love these guys!!
 Got these guys in a mid-air jump!!
 Great shot!
 They put on an amazing show!
I found out today that Simple Plan and Faber Drive went out to two bars in my city, one of which my friend and I stopped in and only had one beer and then went home. I'm kicking my ass today that we didn't stay longer and we could have seen them!!!!!!!!!!

Here is my July photo 365 from my iphone, love filling it up.
