Today is My Day...

to post on the Scrapgal blog. I did a little post on the benefits of scraplifting.

This is the page I created using mostly the Little Yellow Bicycle Frightful line, alphabet letters by American Crafts and the kraft journal spot is by Making Memories.

Erin loves to swing so much! Ever since she was a tiny, little girl :) She can definitely pump her legs now, but still likes to be pushed every now and then. And the higher, the better! I used to joke and tell her she was going to end up on the moon :)
I didn't want to do just Halloween themed layouts this month despite having Halloween product. And when I was flipping through my October photos and saw this older one, my title jumped into my head. Along with that chipboard moon. Then I remembered a tutorial I read in one of the magazines about cutting striped paper diagonally and everything kind of fell into place from there thanks to Sara Winnick :)

How often do you "scraplift" layouts?

    As for sketches (for layouts) I have a book full or two full of them...but I have only used one...and I came up with it, lol.

  12. I love the blocking! I tend to borrow elements of pages, like the idea of turning the paper sideways to make it diagonal. I've got notebooks filled with little ideas like that that I just love!
