The past few weeks I've been busting my booty working solely on my best friend JBug's pre wedding album! I wanted to scrapbook her two bridal showers, bachelorette party, and rehearsal dinner and send it on up to her by September. So I've been working diligently when I have time on her album, which is turning out beautiful and I'm not sure I really want to send it LOL. But because of this I've got quite a mess of a scrapbook room on my hands!
My table has looked like this for the past few weeks! It's been driving me bonkers! Well last weekend I decided to sit down and create something new: a picture frame for My Sister and her Boyfriend for their new home...needless to say it was a bit challenging beause I have everything bridal shower spread out all over my crafting area!
I was successful despite the mess and here is the lovely frame I made for them! I had to go pick up the picture I had developed but I was pretty proud of how it turned out. It was another item I really didn't want to give away LOL. I would have even kept the picture of them in it and put it up in my house. I think it has to do with my color obsession...yup pink and green! I just love the colors together and I had those awesome flowers lying around....
Well last night I sat down to create a card for my cousin Jodi. I had bought a few items for her at JoAnn's and didn't want to send them without a card! And what did I grab? Yup you got it...the same color scheme and flowers that I did the frame with. I only had two of the flowers left and the rest was easy to grab since I still had it out from the weekend before! Plus I really wanted to do something simple and easy so I could get back to scrapping my friends album, which I did 2 layouts last night for it as well as this card!
Now I'm not much of a card maker but I thought this was pretty cute! I guess I should just practice more at making cards because they are fun and unlike some of my layouts that I do these only take around 30 minutes or less!!
