Blog Break

Holy Bananas!! Has it really been over 2 months since I last blogged?? Talk about a long blog break...and longer than I had planned that's for sure...but life around here in December and January was QUITE busy...and really that's an understatement!!

But I am back now and hopefully I can keep somewhat of a regular schedule of sharing crafty projects and sharing life. And let me just say, it's good to be back to crafting too...seemed to be in a bit of a craft rut after finishing up my December Daily 2011 (planning to share 2010 and 2011 sometime in November as the holidays approach again).

Today I want to share an older layout that I hadn't shared yet. I put it together sometime in November before I focused soley on the December Daily. I put this one together using the first prompt from Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party class last fall. This prompt was all about using scraps. There are lots of bright colors and patterns reminding me of summer and I even tried stamping on white paint.

This is a much better shot of the samping on the white paint. The inks muted a little as the dried, but I love the subtle effect it has...not too overwhelming to distract from the photo or the story.

Anyway, I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Planning to make a few cards this afternoon to catch up on the 2012 challenges over at the Papertrey Playhouse blog (you can check them out too and play along if you'd like). There are a couple of great challenges over there and while I am really late on a few of them, better late than never!! Have a fabulous Sunday and thanks for stopping by!!
