It’s the first of the month…

Apr 2, 2007

which means I can show you some layouts I created for ScrapGal. This months theme is confess. Below are a few things I have to confess. But first if you can, you really need to read the ScrapGal newsletter. Dina did a fabulous job putting it together. You will love all the layouts the designers created. As well as the button article Celeste Smith wrote…. lots of ideas for buttons.

Journaling reads:

I wish I could honestly say this photo was taken December 1st but I must confess it was not, it was taken March 1st. Yep, that’s right MARCH 1ST! Every year, I tell myself I’m taking our Christmas tree down before the middle of January but when the time arrives… I just can’t make myself do it. I won’t start taking it down until I have no other choice and when the temperatures warm up and the scent of spring fills the air, I feel the need. If I could only figure out a way to hide our tree all decorated and out of the way I would. Oh how wonderful it would be to have it hidden. Then as soon as the holidays begin pull it out, plug it in and let the Christmas cheer begin.


Journaling reads:

I have clutched you tightly in my hands for over 20 years. You have been with me at every job, on every road trip, after the birth of each daughter and every other monumental moment in my life. There is nothing more pleasing to the ear on a hot summer day than to hear the pop of your top and the fizz of you being poured into a tall ice filled glass. But I must confess at times there have been others… Sprite Zero, Diet Dr. Pepper and Pepsi One. But I always come back to you as you are my one true love…. There’s just one Diet Coke and you’re the one for me.

Scrap Scene has some cute Easter Projects listed and I’m so happy Angie has my Eater Cards listed. Angie updates a lot so you may need to scroll down a bit. She also has the Bliss Purse Album by Mou Saha. She is the guest designer this month for Cocoa Daisy. I tell you Mou is one talented lady. I just love all her work. Speaking of love… I love the Scalloped-Edged Mini Egg book Erin Lincoln created. It is just too cute.

Also, my Easter Mini Album and Altered Mason Jars are now in publication. My mini album is in the April Scrapbook Trends and my Altered Mason Jars are in the April/May Paper Trends. The Blossoms II Chipboard pieces by Maya Road fit perfectly on the lid. They are really fun to make and take no time at all. Well gotta go and finish typing up my supply lists and instructions for some layouts. Hope you all have a wonderful Monday.
