Scrappy Time!

20110728-024319.jpg

I haven’t been crafty in a very long time. I know it is in part because my room has been a disastrous mess – which I remedied tonight. I’ve also been lacking inspiration despite a huge stack of photos that have just been waiting to be scrapped, and special memories relived. Once I cleaned my space tonight, all I wanted to do was play with paper and ink and other pretty things. The result was a simple single page layout that says a lot to me.

Next week I’m slated to begin a side project that I have very mixed feelings about. It has a current working title of “Project Me”. I’m not sure how it will go, but it inspired me to craft. I’m also not sure if I’ll feel comfortable blogging about it, only time will tell. I’m nervous, maybe a bit skeptical, filled with confidence and doubt, terrified and excited all in one. Change is good though, and it is the only way we as people grow. The photo is poolside at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass in Chandler AZ last year on one of the days before Creative Escape. It was so beautifully hot, and that R&R was so needed.

For the crafty details – the tag reads, “It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are”. The metal embellie below reads, “Believe”.

Cardstock and ribbon are Bazzill. Patterned paper is by Rusty Pickle. The tag is by Daisy‚ÄĘD. Metal embellie is Tim Holtz idea-ology. And the brads are My Minds Eye. Ink is Ranger Distress in black soot and Ranger Nick Bartock Collection in Van Dyke Brown (my fav!).
