In With the New

A new layout, that is.

A clean scrap room is very inspiring. AND, I even cleaned up after I was done. Usually I'm too tired (or maybe too lazy!) to clean up. My old routine was to clean up before I scrapped, because I had left a mess from the previous project. Bad habit. Now I'm going to try to put stuff away after I'm done with a project.

So far so good! ;)

Here's what I did. I used Coredinations embossed cardstock, with circles on it. I sanded off the circles above the title, to make it look like bubbles... kinda sorta...

The other paper is all Bella Boulevard that I won from Two Peas in a Bucket last spring... finally getting around to using it.

Couple of close ups:

The Creative Charms velvet flower in the most yummy color of brown, it's so pretty it deserves to be called something other than brown, maybe mushroom or gravy! LOL! Everything is better with gravy.

Hard to tell in this shot, but I used blue glimmer mist on the word paper. I also painted. This little layout had a lot of little techniques.

My goal is to try to do 2 layouts per week, so I can have 200 by the end of the year. 200 sounds like a lot, but 2 a week sounds doable, don't ya think?

Happy creating!!!!

Your layout is super cute!!! I haven't scrapped a layout in a YEAR now. Pathetic, isn't it? I really should try to get back into doing it before I totally forget how!

Oh - you really don't want to see my working space right now. You'd probably have a coronary. I have to step OVER stuff!!! It's awful!! I hate disorganization!!! So why am I sitting here blathering on about it instead of cleaning?!! Oh I know - procrastination!!! Is this comment long enough for you? *sigh* I'm hungry.

Neat job on the sanding. And what great pictures from the 1990s!

Love this layout! I cleaned my room too, and it is inspiring! I have a new desk, so I'm really trying to clean up after each project. We'll see how long that lasts!
I like your goal, I think I might try it too.
