Somebody just called me BALIW
HHAHHAAHAH I am when it comes to my scrapbooking,... I live and breathe this hobby -- its been my life since 2002 -- alongside raising my family..... It is where I found my place in the world,... it is where I found precious friends too worth keeping forever,...
So anyway highway --- going back to BALIW -- yes LEE called me Baliw -- and it was of course said in a humorous manner... I am called a MASSACRE queen -- I buy and use paper to bits,.. I cut them ---layer it so you would never know when one line starts and another one ends...
In this case -- I had been trying to find ways to scrap faster. With another bunch of pictorial pics to tackle (alongside my huge backlog of pics for 3 boys), I had planned to attack them with simple layouts in mind. What works is a a simple formula of precision cut element (my own self made diecuts in 3d), borders and additional embellishments. So as I started one, it was swell -- I chose what i needed, then the layout process took a standstill. A portion was left empty... what do I put on the bottom of the layout? It took a good week till like a light bulb, Marj's idea to put a bow came on.
Then looking for ribbons bigger than 1.5 wide was a struggle. I just settled to muting this bright green lace ribbon with sheer ribbon and layered Prima flowers and voila! My problem was finally solved! I was just happy these pictures were finally down on a layout.
Special thanks to Master Iris for sending me the Webster's Pages. I had a great time cutting the words "Beautiful Inspirations" and the borders. I have to admit, it was like feeding an addiction. And the kind of HIGH I felt after,... it was bliss....
I submitted this layout the Kaya Challenge
Here is the layout:
Title: Beautiful Inspirations
Such a vision for all of us to be here... It is like these tender moments together, the precious embraces and sweet kisses are what I thrive for.... It is what inspires me to keep going, keep my courage up and forward to a new tomorrow.
