I am back to blogging after a long break. I have a goal for 2015 to post more on Friends With Flair. In addition to posting more, another goal is to use more stamps in my layouts. I sometimes feel the era scrapping layouts are over and we are now in the Project Life Era in the Scrapping book world. I am not ready to let it go just yet. In the future I may dabble in the PL world, but as for now I am holding onto my roots.
This past Fall I got into the car with my favorite road trip pal and bestie and headed to a crop in Branson. It is only a short 11 hours away. Yes, we do have scrapbooking crops in MN, but they do not have the awesome gals we met up with. Three days of solid laughter, food, wine and scrapping. I would drive pretty much anywhere to be scrap with these gals. While there I challenged myself to use the SMAK kits I had purchased just with scrapping in mind. I was also going for speed. I did not finish the journaling or the little added embellishments until today...what 3 months to get a page done...yes.
I was so happy when Unity came out with this Kit Alpha Smack. I love letter stamps. Grab this one as it is on sale now.
I love this page it is such a great memory. This used stamps from the Camera Ready SMAK kit.
I used the All in the Numbers kit for the tag. Also on sale this weekend. I love that tag stamp. For the title I used the "this is my happy" stamp from one of my favorite SMAK kits Camera Ready. I used the leaf stamp from the KOM Love & Joy for the HOLIDAYS
Thanks for looking I am finishing of the left over Champagne from our New Years Day omelette breakfast and scrapping...here is to new beginnings. Happy 2015.
