It has been awhile. A long while since I’ve been on here. There is really no rhyme or reason. It was a busy summer, followed by a packed Fall, then the holidays hit. As you get older, time seems to slip away faster and faster, and suddenly months have gone by unnoticed.
I have been doing a number of challenges with my Disney scrap group (so love those people!), and have done some challenges with the Ali Edwards Pinterest files (still love her approach to story telling).
I also did a ton of gift albums for friends and family, both in terms of actual scrapped pages, but also albums with journaling and ephemera where all they have to do is add their 4×6 photos. Homemade for the win!
It has been rainy and cool in SoCal the past few days, which got me thinking about Soarin’ – and missing the tour of California that it used to provide. So, here is a page I made at the tail end of its run. I printed out a copy of the shape of the state, then put it over an 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock, poked holes along the perimeter, then used embroidery floss to stitch the outline. I then used a sponge dauber to colour the paper lightly with blue to match the background paper (from Shimelle’s Starshine), then layered the photos on top. It’s very different than what I normally do, and I rather like it! I hope you do too!
