Card Swap

Tomorrow is the card swap. I have 16 hours (if I don't sleep) to design, execute, and complete 4 cards. Three cards for our out of town swappers, and one for moi (the sample card) Good luck to me!!! Every time I make the same mistake, and wait till last minute. Is it that I forgot, no!! Is it that I have no time, no!! Is it that I want to make the best card and impress every one, but I have no idea what to do? Yes, yes, yes, that's it. I suppose I like to line on the edge, dangerously close to failure, and rescued by my limitless imagination? Of course not, I am just a procrastinator. Picture will follow tomorrow.

Holloween layout

Okay, I know it is kind of early to think about Halloween, but I wanted to post one of my layouts and this one was the easiest to post. I made this for one of the girls at my scrapbooking group "LCN" I love this group. Each one of us made a 2 page layout of "First" and put it together in an album for her. Please let me know what you think of it.

I can't believe that almost a month has passed since my last post. It is as if I was trapped in a time void, because honestly it feels as if July just began. The reality however is that August is here. Back to school just around the corner (where I live) I love school supplies, memories of childhood. Well, I have been inspired by Marion a very talented blogger. Her videos are very informative and well done, her art is inspiring. I must start posting some of my work. My blog has been mostly about thoughts a way to express myself, but I need to share my work and get a critique of my pages. I will post one of my layout by the end of the week.
I am also getting together with my friends for another card swap. We are doing Christmas cards. The thought of Christmas can be stressful, but we'll be ready!!! We are each (ten of us) designing a card then we put a kit together after a simple, brief explanation of "how to" everyone gets to do one of each card. I love these swaps. Talking and eating are of course incidental the cards are just an excuse to enjoy each others company.
