I'm scrapbooking again.....

....finally! Do you ever get stuck in a rut and you just can't get out? I have been making cards and cards and cards lately, and doing no scrapbooking. Don't get me wrong, I like making cards, but I got started doing this because I love scrapbooking, and I am so far behind that I really need to get my butt in gear and get scrapbooking. I did a 2 page LO for my club this month since we normally only make cards, I figured it would be a good thing to do. I should also mention I am a chronological scrapbooker. I like to start at the beginning and go from there, so this was a bit of a challenge for me since I an no where near Easter, but I wanted to do an Easter themed LO.

This was also a different sort of LO for me since I did a lot of things on here that I do not normally do. I am a very basic type of scrapbooker, it took me a long time to even use patterned paper. I have never used rub-ons on a LO before (esp on a picture!!) but I think it looks good. And doing the whole background paper as a patterned paper is also a new thing.

I have to apologize for the crappy lighting, I took these pics at night and I have really bad lighting in my stampin' pad even during the day but at night it is almost non existent.

Stamps: none
Ink: Orchid Opulence (on the bunny)
Paper: Cottage Wall DSP, Old Oilve, Orchid Opulence, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink
Misc: Large & Small Oval Punches, Ornament Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Paper Snips, Cricut Pooh Font (for the title) Wiggly Eyes

I am planning on going quite a bit more scrapbooking in the coming days, I just hope I actually get it done instead of putting it off like I have been doing. It is so much easier to just make cards since they take less time and the ideas come to me so much easier. I had wanted to do another LO tonight, but I am getting behind on my running schedule, so I am off to run for 55 mins (yuck!!) If I survive I will attempt a LO tonight.

Until next time, Happy Scrappin'
