Me Too & Life is Better...

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Well, LOAD has thrown me off my game this time around.  The month of May is just crazy for me.  I often wonder why the schools plan so many events in May. I've barely had time to do what I need to, let alone scrapbook everyday! Or maybe, I shouldn't have tried to do LOAD this month.  But, believe it or not, I have completed a LOAD so far.  Some days, even multiple pages.  I've just not had or taken the time to blog them all.

Here is one I am really happy with.  It was for Day 21, 5-5-5, (choose your photos, Products and journaling in 5 minutes each) well as the Club CK May/June Issue Challenge #3-use a CK download from the CK blog, and also ScrapFit Mist Mana Challenge!  Phew, that's a lot for one LO! These are 2 of my favorite pictures.  It was one of the first times he stood up by himself.  This was one of the first times he ever tried to really get close to big brother.  They look like brothers and that makes me smile.
I think the reorganization in my scrap room really helped me on this.  I had printed the download as soon as I read the CK challenge. I grabbed the photos in about 3 seconds. I grabbed my Echo Park and my "kids" PP and some red/white/blue CS.  It took me all of the 5 minutes to choose the papers, Mr. huey mist and mask, twine and less than 5 to write the journaling.  There were no time restraints on creating the LO, thank goodness! 

I liked the pennants but didn't want to use them as is so I decided to use them as part of a banner.  They were a little too white, so I doodled on them with markers.   

I am WAY into mists and masks right now.  In my identity crisis, Im trying to decide how much white space I like.  Mist is helping me with that!  It covers and leaves space at the same time.  Here is another LOAD LO that also uses mist, but in a  much more subtle way.  I was given the PP by Ben Franklin for their monthly Paper Mania class.
