Smile!

Happy Saturday everybody!!  Today is the day of my BACHELORETTE PARTY!!!  YAY!  That's not what this post is about. though.  I'm just really excited.  28 days until the wedding!!!

Yesterday was the Carlisle area's Relay for Life.  Everybody gathers at the local high school to camp and walk to raise money for cancer research.  There were lots of people there, many survivors, and fantastic energy.  The walking part was a blast.  The camping part was kinda terrible.  It was cold and noisy out there.  I was quite miserable.  My fiance and I gave up and went home around 3:00am.  

Before I attempted to fall asleep (which didn't happen, by the way), I sat down for a little "in the dark" scrapping!  Yeah, seriously.  Kinda dark.  Light enough to see what I was doing but dark enough to not be able to see colors quite right.  So I challenged myself - make a layout without seeing the colors. 

Not only was this on the ground, it was my first layout made away from my desk.  Here's my set up:




Bags of things and a blanket.  And my cutterpillar.  It was bulky and obnoxious to move, but boy was I glad to have a 12 x 12 solid surface!!

I used the May Studio Calico Camelot kit for this layout.  I wasn't a big fan of the travel theme cause I don't really travel much right now, but travel themed stuff doesn't really go out of style so I'm sure I'll be glad to have it someday.

Here's what I came up with.  I actually really love this!



I have a thing for using full packages of things - like the diecut stars.  They seem to be on watercolor paper, but I really loved the "not quite white" color of them (that I didn't realize was their color until this morning anyway).  I also didn't have watercolors with me so it didn't really matter what color they were, they were staying white anyway.


I need to figure out how to use all of those gold script titles on one layout (obviously without the "smile" of course).  They are awesome.



Thanks for stopping by!!

  1. Gosh, if my scrapbook pages looked this good when I scrapped in the dark, I'd always scrap in the dark! Hope you're having fun at your bachelorette party! :)
