After a long while, my scrapper's block has finally been defeated!

It's funny, because my acrylic blocks formed an army to attack and defend the rest of the camp from the evil, corrupted block. haha! That's the kind of funny you get when I'm sleep-deprived.

Vacation in Florida was ammmmazing and I want to go back again soon, but before I do that I need to get the pictures scrapped! In fact, I have all my unedited photos uploaded to http://www.scrapbookpictures.com/, which took forever, but I still want to edit some and it seems like such a daunting task. I've ben majorly procrastinating lately.

The last few days have been super productive for me. I think QVC craft fair all day on Tuesday really inspired me to get going. Here are the 4 layouts I've done and completed in the last 4 days:

[I'll put in images later... the picture uploader is being strange.]
1. Inspired from Happy Hour on the CKMB Monday night... a bunch of us decided to scraplift this Ali Edwards page here to show what was around our desks. I think it'll be really fun to look back on it and even make one every so often to see how my surrondings change.

2.This was an Challenge for the COCOA club on the message board. I really enjoy the club because it really compells me to get some layouts done... I love challenges! This layout is using something old (eyelets), something new (acrylic shapes and painting on acrylic shapes- love it btw), something borrowed (crayons to draw the stars- I'm in love with the twistable crayons because I've always loved office supplies, and something blue (lots of things). The picture isn't the greatest... but I give the guys a break since I'd already taken 15 pictures of them and my camera wouldn't cooperate. lol they had no idea what was going on!

3. This is just a layout I finally decided to get done. It's about my high school's (and boyfriend's) hockey season last winter... I just had to do the journaling, but it feels good to have it done! Oh yeah, and I heart hockey a ton! My favorite sport to watch...

4. This was another challenge layout. I don't really like the vellum on top, but oh well- it was something new to try. Also, the arrow flows the wrong way and I didn't want to angle it, so I'm just going to try to pretend that I meant for your eye to jump off the page. Oops. The challenge was to scraplift a layout from a magazine, so I also have the pic of he magazine up there.

And so ends my burst of scrapbooking layouts all in a row. Hopefully I'll get some more done soon... but I really need to get on getting some prints done. I'm pretty much fresh out! I have tons to print out still and a ton of photo ops coming up, too.

Oh, and here's an altered composition notebook that I did for my friend who just mored all the way across America from me. It's only been a week and a half and I miss him a ton. He's honestly the single most caring, big-hearted person I know. I hope he likes the journal when he sees it! He really likes art and writing...

This weekend, I'm working on sunshine albums (my goal is to get three done that I'm super proud of, and I may do more if I can find time). I'll definently post those here when I'm done! Oh, and I have to start thinking about what I want to do for an ATC swap that I'm in. My first ATCs! I'm excited.

I'll post pics in the morning. Goodnight and God Bless.
