I keep getting trying to add more and more projects on top of what I already intend to do. I want to do it all, but I just can't. Well, not and actually have a life that includes coming out of my basement. I keep seeing so much inspiration on blogs and in the galleries and wonder how people find the time in their days to get it all done. If I focus on creating a project, the dishes suffer. If I try to catch up on blogs (or blogging), Becca watches Umi Zoomi for longer than she should. If I stay up late to get my creativity out of my head, the next day I suffer, from lack of sleep. How do you make it all work?? I'm sure there is a lot of advice out there on how I could manage my time better and how to do five things at once, but I think the solution is extending the number of hours in a day. That wouldn't mess up the rest of the world or anything and would really help me out. Okay, okay, maybe not. Maybe I should learn to prioritize my projects, maybe it'll be okay if the dishes sit for a little longer, maybe it'll be okay if everything doesn't get done right this second or even today. Maybe I should stop stressing about it and just live. Oh, wait. There. See? If I ramble long enough, I can usually answer my own questions.
Now that I am done with my whining, I will post what I've done so far. I had tried with the 1st kits to use only what was sent in the kit. With these kits, I am adding things in left and right. What's the point of my stash if I can't use it??
Here are the layouts from the Gossamer Blue kit:
This 1st page is one of the two I entered in the Glitz design contest, using mostly what was in the kit. I also posted this one already, but it's fun and pretty. :)
This page was based on a member scraplift challenge. So fun to browse through what everyone had posted and see all the amazing talent!! I chose a layout by Jill Keller. She has great layouts.
Here are the layouts for Studio Calico:
So, this kit came with a mask and mist. The mist I was okay with, but the mask is a little challenging for me. I NEVER use them. Don't really know why, I definitely like the results. A little messy, just like me. :)
I started thinking about how modern/cool/hip the masks design was and immediately thought of this pic of my brother. You know, since he's playing Magic and it's so cool. (sarcasm alert!!) Though, who am I to judge when I have thousands of pieces of paper in my basement? I wanted the layout to reflect the mask, though, hence all the geometric shapes and bold patterns.
There you go. I will post the others as soon as I can get them done. And I am going thru and doing a small spring cleaning in my scrap area and will show where I work soon.
Thanks for stopping by :)
