a little bit of this & that

i don't know about you guys, but it seems like 2012 is filling up already!  i suppose that is what happens when you have kiddos.  i failed miserably at my resolutions last year.  but, i will try again this year.  so far, the only one on the "list" that hasn't been accomplished daily is running.  i tried the other day & it left me with stabbing sinus pain.  hoping once i get my allergy medication in my system, it will go better.  there is always next week, right?  lol.

i thought maybe i'd share the tiny bit of craftiness i've been up to so far this year.  :)

i made this layout (you know, so i can remember next year what i planned to do & then failed at.  HA!  or i can say i did it all.  maybe this year is the year.  :) )
this layout was the last of the 145 i made in 2011.  that has to be a personal record for me!  ha!  i'm happy with the result.  and i had been looking for a reason to use that iphone pic forever.  (insert kid from "sandlot" saying, "foooreeeevvver" here.  ha!)

i did a couple of crafty projects already.  i saw a coffee filter wreath tutorial posted online (HERE) and thought it looked pretty.  so, i made one!  it was easy, but took much long than the tutorial said it would... just FYI incase you want to make one too!  :) 
this is an iphone pic because i am  far too lazy to get the real camera out & hook it up to the computer to get the pic for the blog.  i'll own my laziness.  lol.  

and.... i made my project life 2012 title page.  it's far fancier than last year title page.  lol.  i think i like it.  used a lot of cameo cuts & october afternoon farmhouse product.  i don't think i will regularly posting my PL weekly pages.  it's probably not going to be that interesting to anyone other than myself and family.  but, i will occasionally be posting about it over at the scrap again blog.  so..... without further ado... 

this is probably my favorite cut from the silhouette on this layout. (above)  absolutely love it.  i used the sunburst circle & the life happening circle (from loni stevens.  i downloaded a TON of hers!) 




and not crafty in the least - but i can't wait to scrap these pics i took last weekend.  i didn't take my real camera... just the iphone.  i don't know what in the heck i was thinking.  i want to go back.  like.  now.  and take pics again!

  9. Wow! Can I just say ditto to your list of things to accomplish in 2012? While reading it, I was yep...I have to do that. Yep, to that one, too. :o) Design wise I really love the thin strips of paper with the stamped kraft tabs on them. Every day you scrap more and more like me. HA HA HA HA HA! OK...that was totally a joke. Every day I wish I was more and more like you in your design work.

  10. You have some incredible blog eye candy this post, girl, TONS of eye candy. The layout is amazing, truly, love how you have the main goal in the banner grounded with the PP strip. Cute photo! Then the project life page - Um IN LOVE with that. One of my faves I have seen! Those photos are incredible and look great even though you used your phone, I never would have known. Look at that wreath, I want to do that ;)

  15. It is funny that you wrote about thinking no one might be interested in seeing your PL stuff because I ran across it on Pinterest. :) Your title page is gorgeous, and I'm sure people would love to see more.
