Scrapbooking Time...

I found a bit of time over the weekend to do a bit of scrapbooking. It's been a while and it took me some time to find my groove again.

I started this layout on Saturday night, took it to Ben and asked him what I should title it, and when he went to bed an hour later, it still looked exactly the same as what I had shown him an hour before. Needless to say, he told me to walk away and go to bed. That worked and I was able to get it finished yesterday morning.

The journaling says, "When Kat first saw this caterpiller in my parents backyard, she thought that it was fun... BUT then it started crawling toward her and she was sure that it was trying to eat her piggies. ~July, 2009"
I used my watercolor pencils to color the caterpiller and to provide the accent colors on the journaling block.
Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Little Buggers
*Unity Stamp Co. Bevy of Butterflies
*Unity Stamp Co. Frame This Alpha
*Bo Bunny paper (green)
*Basic Grey paper (yellow)
*Sassafras lass paper (scallop border)
*Martha Stewart border punch
*watercolor pencils
*StazOn jet black inkpad
*Stampin Up Take Note diecut
*flat backed gems
*corner rounder
*Bazzill kraft paper

This second layout is a testament to my scrapbooking ability since Kat and I were having a day of it yesterday. I did this layout when I had hit the end of my rope with her and handed her off to Jacob and locked myself in my stamp room to relax...LOL! She was all of 2 yesterday (with me anyway... she did much better with anyone else.)
I love these butterflies from the Bevy of Butterflies kit that was available for Unity kom customers. They provide the simply perfect embellishment and the variety of sizes makes them so versatile!

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Bevy of Butterflies
*Unity Stamp Co. March kom- Simple Life
*Bo Bunny paper collection
*Bo Bunny brads
*CTMH Cocoa inkpad
*CTMH Sweet Leaf inkpad
*Bazzill Kraft paper
This week is a really fun week in the crafts-world. The Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) show is happening down in Florida. The whole Unity Stamp Co. gang is there and I am so jealous and wishing that I could have made it, but we are going to keep things lively on the home front....
