Obviously I am feeling some better - not tip-top, but markedly better. I have actually been able to wear my glasses for the most part of a few days and I can actually scrapbook for about 30-45 minutes at a time. In celebration of this fact, I have 2 layouts that I completed yesterday for the Shimelle's Scrapbooking Weekend at Pretty Paper.True Stories. I have also gone back and put the Challenge number on the previous layouts (I don't know what I was thinking before!).
Okay - discussion: In the 1st layout, my embellishments' colors looked much pinker in person last night than in the photo here. I don't hate it, but I am surprised as they look rather red. I double-checked, they are just dark pink - and that's okay. On the 2nd layout, even though it looked good when I made the page, those hearts on the top are just too big. But as those Fiskars pop squares really mean it when you stick them down, it was just too late by the time I realized it this morning. Live and learn! Overall, I rather like them both - especially considering I could never have fixed that 2nd photo and used it!!!
As you can tell, there is no rhyme or reason to the order I am completing the Challenges - it's basically however and whatever hits me at the moment. Or if my mind can actually wrap itself around the Challenge - which is always the biggest challenge of all because we all know that my mind doesn't work the way it should (or did). But one thing is for sure, the ink came in the nick of time as I was quickly running out of photos to scrap.
So todays Challenges are threefold - Shimelle's great inspiration, no adhesive, no brain. This is gonna be fun!!!!!!!!!! And who knows, I may be back here later - with more!!
Go on - create something! You never know how you're gonna feel tomorrow!
