Hey, Grace! Thanks for the comment--good to hear you got the box, and I'm glad you got CK working again.
Lent is here. Even though I'm Lutheran, I like the idea of giving something up and dedicating that sacrifice toward something else. Charity, for instance. Last year I gave up scrap shopping...which I am currently doing. But I have to admit, I gave up shopping in January, my birthday month. It took me the month to spend the three gift cards to Archiver's I got, and then my husband gets me another one for Valentine's day! So my sacrifice feels a bit insincere. I want to give up scrap shopping for Lent, but I just got a GC to Studio calico for a layout I had published in Scrapbook Trends magazine last month. Can I use the GC and not have it count? How about the birthday money I got from my grandmother?
Here's the layout published in Scrapbook Trends:
The universe obviously wants me to scrap shop, so I'll use the GC, give up shopping until Easter (which matters--I just reached my 60th layout today, so by the middle of March I should be done with 100 layouts), and give the birthday money to charity.*
And here's the latest LOs:
Another vacation layout. I am loving making this album. My son told his pesky brother last summer, "Let sleeping boys lie." I had totally forgotten that until I made this page!
I got the idea for this layout from Diana, The Lonely Scrapbooker. Every child needs a Just Because page.
These two were for this week's Ella sketch. Fun!
* Minus $20 I'll spend to get a lovely die cut. I'm so bad...
