Two layouts for The Lilypad

Pen Love – I did this for the journaling challenge at The Lilypad for September. It was to be about something I’m passionate about. Of course, my first thought was the kids, being a mother but I couldn’t come up with anything specific I wanted to use. I was sitting at my desk, staring at all the different pens and pencils next to me, in the two pencil cups and in the multiple drawers where I keep even more of them… realizing these were only my WORK pens not any of the bazillion I have at home or in my purse and decided I’m probably passionate about them, too! So I went with a more light-hearted approach.

Yes She Did – this layout was completely inspired by the word art that said “Yes She Did”. Elysse gave me all of her cruise photos to scrap with if I wanted and the ones of her doing the zip line and the rock climbing wall were awesome! I knew I wanted to scrap them.

My layouts from Scrap n Art Digital Magazine from June 2013

Some months, my layout obligations at Scrap n Art seem arduous, but it’s really because they take me outside my comfort zone. And THAT’s why I took the “job” in the first place, I WANTED to challenge myself, think outside the box. And the group of women working there, absolutely awesome and dedicated!

One for SOSN at the Lilypad

Little Butterfly Wings had a kit that just called to me to use. There was a time that I was busy every night with some kind of volunteer work or something else I HAD to do. Not anymore. And yet I’m still busy!

Two with BYOC at the Lilypad

Alex – Losing Molly recently made me think about our first cat, Alex. Photos of him have been in my to-scrap pile for a while and this kit was perfect.
