and now for something completely different......

in stark contrast to the past 2 months where I have just LOOKED at my scrap stuff......I actually completed a layout today! only one......not for DT work......not for anyone else but me.......based on a sketch......but a layout nonetheless! a memory that will now be shared with my children and their children and their children.......assuming someone chooses to lug all my scrapbooks away when I am old and senile!

and yeah, I usually don't post layouts on my blog......maybe I am feeling especially proud of having scrapbooked or maybe it is the start of something new. don't know........my blog......I can do what I want! lol!! hey, look.......I even managed to use one of those 13 cups of buttons I sorted the other day! it was so easy to just grab the right colored jar and dig through it! (and the button is green, btw, not brown like it looks in the scan) I tried to figure out how to sneak some ribbon in there too......I thought a line running under the title might be nice. can you believe I didn't have any that would work? shocking! sheesh! lol!!

I do notice that in the scan you can tell the pattern of the gaekkebrev much better (it is Danish for "joke-letter" and the "a" & "e" should be smooshed together.....I don't know the function key to do that). isn't it gorgeous though? a friend (uh ahem.....C) sent it to me from Denmark last Easter. I knew I had to save it in my scrapbook.

well......before I get too crazy and possibly start another layout I think I might rest. this was hard work!!

very cool...I like the new visual aid...thanks. I should scrap too. I feel the urge, just not the urge to clean.
