and four more...

to add to the 2010 layout tally. i'm not normally a person who is worried about quantity, but i couldn't deal when i saw that i had only made 9 layouts in 2009! i've also actually been feeling really inspired and crafty lately. i think it's a combinaiton of some great new products, awesome talent on the blogs & it being a nice outlet for some general craziness in my life right now. anyway, here are the most recent additions to my 2010 folder.

this was for our may sketch challenge. it was based on an 8.5x11 becky fleck sketch that i kind of just stretched to 12x12. loved these photos of the boy sandwiched between me and his mum. i'm also kind of obsessed with the pink polka dot from oa's "fly a kite" coupled with kraft paper!

i've been loving this scallop thing that almost everyone is doing lately, so i thought i'd take it for a spin. it was really relaxing for me to lay the circles out, switch the order around and then attach them row to row, like a little bit of crafty zen. this is the boy and i at his fire department banquet last month, one of my new favorite pictures of us.

i was super inspired by kerry lynn's use of a sticker sheet as a background, and so i thought i'd try it with the little alpha stickers from mme's "quite contrary", i kind of can't stop using this line. these are the pups on our way home from the airport, sooo flipping cute. and i have to admit, that i was unnaturally excited to finally get to use some of those cute pre-done titles that i don't usually get to use since they tend to be more kid friendly. also, please note that i'm trying to get better about occasionally using my actual handwriting.

another one using my horrible handwriting. this was kind of a mish mosh of current favorites; mme's "so sophie - charming", crate's "brook" sparkle chip & making my own rosettes. also, finally using some favorite photos from new years ever... yeah it's almost june.

so... there it is! i'm still feeling really inspired so hopefully there will be a lot more to share!

always inspiring and for the record your handwriting is so not sucky. It adds so much character to your scrappy and you don't even know it.
