Unfortunately it's not guaranteed, and it could be that I spend many more weeks in the boot and ultimately even get it pinned, but I see no reason not to hope for the best at this stage.
Knowing that my life might get back to normal soon (in terms of housework, exercise, paid work, etc etc) I'm aware that my time in the craft room might soon cut back. So I'm trying to get as many pages done for my spending freeze goal as possible.
Here's what I've done in the last few days . . .
Then I decided I needed a bit of inspiration, when I was struck by this lovely sketch at The Memory Nest.
Anyway, our kids and their friends wanted to twist it a bit - they had enjoyed an Easter joke-making session so much they wanted to repeat it - hence Easter in September!
The most common way I scrapbook multiple photos these days is to make a traditional page hero-ing one or two photos, and place the rest in a pocketed page protector.
In this case I ended up using both sides of the page-protector and making two "traditional" pages.
I was scrapping with my good buddy Glitter Girl while making this second "traditional" page (by which of course I mean that I had Youtube running in the background), and she was scrapping with a stamp. So of course I spent much too long looking for a dress-form stamp I thought I owned, before coming to the conclusion that I had borrowed it from a friend. So I used a different stamp and cut a dress-form on my Silhouette. Anyway I'm very grateful to my Superhero friend for her timely inspiration!
But wait, there's more!
Because of course I was working on a Circus layout, and knew I had some circus stamps as well. I was too far along in the process to include a clown stamp, but I used the big ball stamp in both my background and my cluster. Happy days!
Phew! Thanks for visiting. I'm heading back to the craft desk, and I hope you get to this weekend as well!
