How Did That Happen?

May 24, 10 • ScrapbookingNo Comments

What happened?  Well, I had planned on making a big deal about my 100th post…but I just noticed that I'm already at 102!  I honestly didn't think that I would be able to do it – stick with something for so long!  I signed up for Typepad on a month-to-month basis because I wanted to make sure I would keep going…so I could cancel if it was too much for my schedule.  But let's see…I have been typepadding for almost 8 months, approximately 200 days, and I have 102 posts…that averages out to a post every other day!  Not too bad, if I do say so myself!

I am a fairly confident person, but I haven't been stretching myself creatively much lately.  So I decided that I needed to step outside my comfort zone.  I submitted some projects to a design team call.  I came across Margie's website accidentally…I'm Just a Girl.  I discovered that I had missed her class up at Everafter earlier in the month.  Nothing personal, but I just don't like to drive that far to a scrapbook store anymore and I don't have to because I have a really great one close by…Cool Scrapbook Stuff in Poway.  But it would have been fun to take a class.  I haven't taken a class for YEARS! 

But whether I get on the team or not, it was fun to try!  Here's the layout that I made with the Girl's Paperie things that I bought at Cool Scrapbook Stuff a couple of weeks ago.  Love the products!  This was just one of the projects I submitted, but I really like it.  The subject being so cute doesn't hurt…my niece, Marissa, is a cutie.  She's quite old now – eight!  She looks a lot more mature :)

Recognize the flower?  I added that cute button from Jenni Bowlin Studios…perfect finishing touch!
