Hello and welcome back! I am so happy to be back on my lil' ol' blog and posting again! I'm still sharing things that I made during the time I was sans computer, but hopefully we will be finishing my crafting room soon and I can get back to making lots of new creations!
I'm currently working on graduation invitations for DD1. It's a little hard to believe that I used to share photos of her grade school valentines and now I'm finishing up graduation cards... sniff! sniff!
As soon as they are finished, I'll try to remember to share a pic with you!
Today, I'm sharing a couple of pages I've added to my inspiration/quotes journal and a couple of scrapbook pages.
This was made completely from scraps from a 'green' project
I made long ago. I love all of the different layers on this!
You can see the original project here.
This page was an effort to finish off a packet of dsp
that I've had forever and only had scraps left. It's
all gone now!! One down, 5,000 to go...
This page also uses the last of the scraps. Notice those
teeny tiny tags? Yep, I used every possible piece!! I
think the embossing folder added a nice 'quilted' touch
to the patchwork of scraps.
Another 'use it up' page! The green, lacy trim has been in my
stash for a long time and the background page has as well.
I had a lot of fun journaling around the swirling vines!
Thanks so much for visiting again and I hope you were inspired to use up some of your bits and pieces as well! Have a fantastic day!!

Helloooooo... I'm hoping there's not too much of an echo in here and that some of my following peeps are still around! I have finally bought a new computer, mostly finished renovating our new to us house, and partially moved in (still no scrappy room...) and had a few minutes to post something on my blog again!
The cards were actually created a while back, but without a computer, they were never shared on my blog. Nothing too fancy and for the most part they were made with scraps of paper that I felt the need to use up!
I love how the petite blue flowers on the umbrella and
the blue cloud tie together to make a not so cloudy and gray card.
This one is a bit unusual for me-a card full of sticker embellishments!
My mom loves peacocks and the girls thought these stickers were
perfect for her birthday card. I have to admit, the 3D feathers are
Well, this is all for now. I hope you will get a little inspiration from my cards and I promise not to wait so long before I post again! Have a great day and happy crafting!
