I finally got my scrap on!

I have to admit, since I've gotten pregnant, I've had no motivation to scrap. Between not feeling well and being exhausted all the time, my favorite hobby has really suffered. And I miss it! I'm so much happier when i'm able to have some creative time. Well, on Saturday, I went to a 12 hour crop with next-door Lisa and down-the-street Heather, and it was so much fun! It felt sooo good to just get in the zone, and I actually had some mojo going! I got 5 pages completed (well, almost completed, less the finishing touches I added today), so I was happy with that. This is one of the layouts I did of my boy (using the new My Family line by Fancy Pants):


We were lucky enough to team up with Tattered Angels this month, and they sent all of us on the Fancy Pants DT some awesome products. On the above layout, I used some chipboard frames as masks, and I sprayed over them with Slate Glimmer Mist. I then added the chip frames back on the layout for some dimension. You can check out the TA blog here.

I can't post my other layouts just yet, but here are some sneaks in the meantime :-)


On the last sneak, you may recognize the tissue paper flower I showed you on a previous post. You can see my tutorial on how to make them here.

In non-scrappy news, I officially enter my mid-30's tomorrow - yep, the big 3-5. Or Advanced Maternal Age as they like to call me in the pregnancy world (this is me sticking my tongue out lol). I had a wonderful date with my hubby on Friday night celebrating my b-day, and i'm looking forward to having a lunch/pedi date with my mom and Chloe tomorrow :-)

Hope everyone is doing well and having a good start to your week!
