Scrappin' Fool

So one thing I have been doing more of lately is scrapbooking, yay!! I finally decided to just set up a card table in the living room when the kids go to bed and get to work. I've done it twice now in the last few weeks and I've gotten quite a bit done!

I don't scrap in chronological order, I'm not that organized. I scrap as the pictures inspire me, or as I find them. So, this is why you'll see several LO's of my youngest from when he was a newborn.

The other thing I've noticed is that lately, I've been gravitating towards more of an overall "collage" look with my LO's. I've not been matting each picture as I've done in the past and even have been layering pictures. I like how it looks, and I've noticed that things go MuCh faster this way for me.

I used a felt coaster from Michael's in this LO. I cut in in half and then gave it a light coat of white paint. I like the dimensional look it adds. I've been trying to use more non-traditional scrapbook items in my LO's, it's fun to mix things up.

I decided to be silly and use mustaches and a pencil to cover up names, etc. for privacy instead of blurring them out, 'cause I'm cool like that. Or, maybe because I couldn't figure out how to blur them on Picnik. I won't say which.

I always am glad when I get back into creating, and scrapbooking is such a fun and instant gratification type of crafting for me.

To those of you that scrapbook, what have you been working on lately?

Please check out "Linky Parties I Love" in the upper right hand corner to see where I'll be sharing.

Keep on scrappin' on, Ladies!
