Layouts #28-31

 I had a blast scrapping this past week.  I finally got Ty's 15 month pics printed so I had some wonderful pics to work with. The start of the scrapping week started with a friend's layout for Midweek Mojo: Topaz 3! She did absolutely amazing with it! I used MME-Good Day Sunshine and a lot of Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Here is what I came up with:

The next layout I did was at a Mommy's night out crop! I had a blast talking to other moms and getting to scrap! I used EP For the Record.

Saturday, April came over and we hung out and scrapped.  I love what I created both of those days! Here is the first! This is my ABSOLUTE favorite pic from that photo session! I used MME-Oh La La and Fancy Pants Artist Edition Notebook. 

And lastly, a fun layout using Fancy Pant's My Family.

Cards #20-27: I am a machine!

So it is official! I am a machine this weekend! I think the realization that I screwed up and gave into weakness has pushed me to try to get to 50 quicker!

#20-22: I think I saw these on Britta's blog and loved the idea of a bright color with black and white! Wish I had some twine to go in the eyelets...but oh well.  These are going to the August Swap at SS! 
#23:This is a birthday card that is going to the August Swap at SS.

#24: OMG, I NEED A SILHOUETTE! I love the butterfly design on it.  This is also going to the SS August swap. 

#25: This card will be going to a friend soon!!!!! She has been my best friend since first grade and we live about 600 miles apart now.  I miss her a ton! 

#26: Another SS Swap card

#27: Another Christmas Card.  That is the last one to say Joy with those thickers! I am pretty much out of letters! lol. Used scraps from Crate Paper from my layouts from last year!

# 18 and 19

So I actually scrapped last night again! I am going back to school in two weeks and will be taking two science classes, so I worry that my scrap time will be limited with the amount of studying I am doing.  I have already gotten the 1963 Encyclopedia on human anatomy from my mom so I can start to learn the muscles and bones!

But back to scrapping.  My first layout is this weeks Mid Week Mojo from Scrapbook Steals! I have been dying to use MME Good Day Sunshine since I got it from SS! The beach trip Kevin, April, Lee and I took with the boys last month was perfect for it!

The next layout/card is a card for the August swap with SS. I really love working with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  For Christmas, I want them all! lol.

In a moment of weakness...

Well I had a moment of weakness...I bought stamps at Michaels today.  I went in for colored pencils...but I have really fallen in love with the tutorials from Britta Sidwerski.  They were Prismacolors and on sale for 70% off! Amazing Deal.  I have done REALLY well keeping my spending down, so I figured I could swing in and get those and get out. WRONG!

I looked at the clearance wall. The one side had some cute scrapbook stuff that I was able to pass up. I walked around the corner and BAM, there was an entire wall of Hero Arts stamps! They were 75% off! I bought some.

So I am starting my count over again! I will get to the 50. From now on, I am sending Kevin into Michaels to pick up my adhesive!

I have decided that this moment of weakness was ok! It was for things I will use over and over again, so it doesn't mean I had to start all over!
