End of Summer, Day 4: Scrapbooking serendipity

Sometimes I select product to use, and it takes me forever. Other times things just fall together like fate.

Case in point: I went to Archiver's recently to get adhesive. I left with adhesive, Basic Grey patterned paper, and My Mind's Eye tags and stickers. I put the products in a pile and left them.

As I looked at them together over the week, I thought, "Man! Those look good toegther." Mind you, I didn't buy them for that reason. But they did look great together.

As a result, I decided to use them together on the same page. Here it is (the extra products come from the Studio Calico August kit Summer of 69):

I scrapped my meeting fellow Club CK peep Alison M, also a fellow Mainer. (Maniac?)  I met her IRL on our vacation to Maine this summer on our way to Acadia. We took photos, being scrapbookers, and I thought my new, look-so-good-together product would work well on the page, since it was sort of about travel and the map worked for that, and it was definitely about girls, and the pink would look good with that.

Sometimes putting together product is a struggle. And sometimes it's not. I like the latter.

So tell me: do you like picking the product to use on your pages? Or is that your least favorite part?

PIcking products is often a love/hate relationship for me. I love picking products at the beginning of a project, assembling a page kit, stuff like that. I dislike hunting for stuff in the middle of making a page, thinking I have to find that one perfect embellishment. I should just stop it! ;)

How fun! What a cute page of you and Alison!
