An icy look



More playing around. We went to our local Winterfest last weekend, where they had all these cool ice sculptures...chairs and tables made of ice next to a fireplace of ice...very cool. I was trying to make my page look more "icy" to go with the pics. It's hard to see in the picture but I used this blue glitter behind the title. Then over the word "Winterfest" I put crystal effects (a clear glaze). The iridescent beads also help the look. Makes me cold just thinking about it. :)

This was a challenge on CK's site to scraplift an CK artist.  I scraplifted a page from Jennifer McGuire, found on page 33 in the Dec. 07 issue of Creating Keepsakes.

Experimenting

I have been trying to creat unique flowers on my pages, and they never quite turn out the way I think they will. But that is ok! I am experimenting! Seeing what things look like! It's exciting and fun, and a huge part of why I scrapbook.

Flowers


It is not often that I get to make a page featuring flowers since I am in a family of boys...but I am SUCH a "flower" person. I love them and wish I could use flowers on every page. So when I came across Creating Keepsakes call for making your own flowers, I jumped on the chance. I plan to try to make a few more pages as well. I am very pleased with the way this one turned out. Man--it feels so good to be scrapbooking again!

Finally



So, we have a new house. Bought it in September and been working on it ever since. Now we are finally moved in (mostly), and although there is more work to be done I just HAD to stop and create a scrapbook page! I was in withdrawel! So, it's not my favorite, but it sure feels good to scrapbook again:
