2010 so far... in layouts!

that's right, i've actually scrapbooked already this year!

one of my favorite stamps that we sell at scraptasia has a monster on it and says "i love your face". the boy spotted it on his first trip to visit me at work and we started saying it all the time. these pictures are from the new years eve party we went to with jessica & roger. i knew if i was doing "love your face" i had to use the "monstrosity" paper from sassafras lass. then i threw some thickers, a chip shape from cosmo's "boyfriend" collection and a studio calico card in for good measure. (also, let the record show that i am not responsible for those neon yellow sunglasses!)

new years day (nyd) the boy and i headed to harlem for k & dawn's "new year, new home brunch for dinner party". vee was already there upon our arrival and it was really nice to introduce the boy to some of the important people in my life. for this one i used the "amplify" collection from sassafras lass, 4 different fonts of thickers and i fell in love with the way the magenta doilie rub-ons from hambly look when rubbed on bazzill's "tangy taffy" cardstock! they almost look like they are actually clear embossed onto the paper, color matching perfection! love.

why is it that you can spend an hour plus on a layout and struggle the whole time to get it looking right, and the one that you whip together in 30 minutes is almost always the one you love more? i've been wanting to use this "origins" paper from basic grey since the day it came in. it takes a lot for me to like something floral, but this does it. love it with the kraft paper base!

and i know i've said it before, but it's worth saying again; one of the best thing about hanging out with other scrapbookers & artists is that i'm not always the one behind the camera. this shot that kristina snagged of the boy & i at the party totally makes my heart all squeezy! i typed a whole list of things i love about us all over the photo with ampersands between each one, hence the title "on & on & on" as in the list goes...

here's to hoping i keep up the good scrapping habits!
