Layout Land

22 Apr

I’ve been a busy girl cranking out the layouts these past couple of days, in between working and coming down from my Glee high – ha!  First up is a layout for the American Crafts blog . The challenge was to use at least 2 items from the new Dear Lizzy collection, which was no problem for me! I have been hoarding her products since the moment they burst on the scene!

Journaling says: “For the past few years, I have been obsessed with pink Nike running shoes! My newest kicks are the pinkest ones yet and the best at motivating me to workout!”

And of course, the fabric paper is SO much fun to play with (especially when combined with pinking shears and some flower folding action!) and it comes in the prettiest patterns. I also used two of the patterned papers,  in addition to the Whistel stamp set and the Clover Bloss Thickers. Honestly, I am in LOVE with this line.

Second up is my challenge for last week: to scrap a non-holiday layout using holiday- themed product. 

A little mix of holiday Sassafras and Cosmo Cricket = tons of fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Just a few things…

In the spirit of lazy Saturday mornings, I found a few things that have kept me quite distracted (and parked in front of the computer for waaaay too long). So I feel like sharing the lazy bug with you as well:

I’m obsessed with podcasts. And the word obsessed applies quite literally here – it’s nothing short of an addiction. One of my favorites is Tranquility du Jour from Kimberly Wilson. Everything she blogs/speaks about it everything I want to hear.

Another favorite is the Paperclipping Roundtable. I can’t seem to get enough of that show! Especially this past week when they spoke with Stephanie Howell (whom I totally adore!). One of my favorite concepts from Stephanie during that show was when she said she really only scraps about moments as opposed to events. I want to do that too!

I just ran across The Color Room blog/color challenge site that looks quite intriguing! I can see myself going back here again and again.

One word: GLEE!!! This is how much I love that show: one time John and I watched an episode TWO times in a row! If you know anything about me and my lack of patience/ability to sit still long enough to watch an hour-long show all the way through without fidgeting like a 4 year old, you would realize what a landmark event it was for me to do such a thing. That, my friends, is good television.

Lady Gaga’s and Beyonce’s “Telephone.” That song is INTENSE! Especially when Beyonce starts rapping. And of course, the subject matter is so serious. Love it!

Kelly Purkey’s Snapshots of My Weekend posts. Such a fun concept – I’m jumping on the bandwagon too! Look for my weekend recap in photos on Monday…

Have a great weekend, everyone!

P.S. Cloudy weekend mornings make me want to watch HGTV and listen to jazz. But not at the same time.

While perusing Google Reader…

So I was just browsing the blogs I subscribe to via Google Reader and clicked on Ali Edwards’ blog, of course. When what to my wondering eyes should appear…my face! Hahah! It caught me off-guard like, hey I think I recognize that person! Super psyched. You can read more about it here.
