Sweet Stuff!!


Today, I thought I'd change things up a bit and share one of my latest double page layouts! I wish I had more time to do scrapbooking, I have SO many pictures to get caught up on! Maybe I should call in sick....whaddya think?? Heehee!! I seem to do more cards lately because it's so much quicker!!

This layout is for my Florida trip album and these pics were taken when we spent a couple of days at Universal Studios. This was our visit to the Candy Factory and let me tell you....the smell in there was heaven!! They had demonstrations on how to actually make candy and it was so interesting! You can see the guy working with the semi-liquid candy on the bottom right there.

I've also learned over my years scrapbooking, to take, not only more pictures but more interesting pictures. Don't just take pics of the people you are with (although, I know take 2 or 3 times as many now as I did before scrapbooking), but be sure to take interesting pictures like signs and things. I think those are some of the best pics and they are so colourful and intersting!! I also included some fun ones of Emileigh and Al outside the shop and Emmy pretending to eat the giant suckers!! She's such a ham!!

For this layout I used black cardstock for the base pages and some colourful American Crafts patterned paper which sort of matches the ribbon that I used. I also used the Bold Brights colours including Only Orange, Green Galore and Pixie Pink. I added some pretty buttons with linen thread and a lavender coloured Prima Sprite. I love my alphabet stamps and especially the Doodle Alphabet which I used here because I could colour it in with my SU markers in whatever colours I want!!

Have a super SWEET day!!!

I love the colors of this page. It's so perky. I do know what you mean about changing the way to take photos. It's something I'm working on too. Don't forget VSBN - lots of good opportunity for scrapping :)

These scrapbooks pages are really fun to look at! I know what you mean about making cards instead of scrapbook pages because they're faster. I started in serious papercrafting by doing scrapbook pages through a class I took. Then I discovered card making and it really took over, because not only is it faster, it doesn't entail trying to decide what photos to use for my pages and then getting prints, etc. But I feel scrapbook is really worthwhile and a more productive and beneficial use of my crafting time. In any event, I'm sure I'll just keep plugging along doing a mix of both.

You have a great eye for interesting material to photograph and your pages are proof that taking pictures of things other than people makes for a fun and interesting layout! Thanks for sharing. Love your blog!
