Six layouts, a mess, and a BUNCH of cards!

I have not blogged in FOREVER.  Seriously.  What's my deal?

Today I have quite a bit to share with you.  Six layouts, a mess, and a bunch of cards.  Just like the title warned you!  So let's get started!!

I think I'm gong to start out with the cards.  It's probably wise to do the layouts in separate posts.

Before I share cards, here's a cat.  For Jason.

Today I learned how to photograph cards.  It's amazing what a small corner of your craft/guest room can do as a background!  We have a Civil War era house with what we believe are actually original floors.  It may not be original, but we like to believe it is!  Regardless, they're beautiful.  One of the few things I'm going to miss about this house when we move.

And here is "the mess".  It was inspired by this Pinterest image:

I think this experiment was really good for me.  It was my first 8 1/2 x 11 layout, I got to use a large photo, and it gave me a chance to play around with paint.  I've discovered that I can't paint mirror images, so that's something I need to work on.

Next up are the layouts.  Individually.

You're welcome.
