Not much time....

for scrapbooking lately, the weather's been too nice!  My long weekend was spent finishing up our backyard project which started in July and unfortunately has dragged on for the whole summer. We decided to replace our concrete patio this year with a new one, and replace an ugly grass area with shrubs; which we thought would take just a week or two.  Ha! What were we thinking! Anyways, it's almost done and hopefully the nice weather will continue for a while so we can enjoy our patio for a few weeks.
I did get a layout done last week for The Color Room's #73 palette, which again I was able to use some of my new My Mind's Eye "Lost and Found" paper.  These papers are from the "Rosy" collection.

This photo is of my mother-in-law.  I also used some diecuts from Pink Paislee and one of their mistable journaling spots.  The piece of paper behind the photo is from a Making Memories notepad.  I like buying these little journaling or notebooks when they come with a line of paper.  They are great when you need a small piece of paper, but they usually have interesting shapes or borders to add interest to your page.  I crocheted a strip using baker's twine and attached the dimensional stickers. The little sticker letters are from Girls Paperie.

The large flower was made with Tim Holtz's tattered flower die using "Rosy" paper and tulle.  The center is one the the decorative brads in this line. The smaller ones are made from Rosy paper with a brad and glitter in the middle.  I almost forgot, I used the tattered lace die from Tim Holtz for the little accordion flower and the strip beside the photo.
Hopefully I  can get a few projects done this week.  With all this new product coming in (for some reason, this year all the scrapbook companies decided to ship everything in late August and early September) it's hard to keep up!  Every time I work, there's new product delivered, which only means one thing - I'm not bringing home a paycheck!  I tell my husband he should be grateful I don't work in a furniture store, now that could be expensive!
