Welcome. This blog is my little home on the web. It's mostly about my favorite hobby, digital scrapbooking. You might also find some recipes, home decor projects, or parenting woes. But mostly digital scrapbooking.

Yin Yang

Yep, "Yin Yang"  - that was the second challenge for Rumble in the Orchard.  Just those words, for us to interpret in any way we wanted.  And, of course, all four teammates' layouts had to come together in some fashion.  Here is our entry. (click image for a larger view)

We went with a renewal/seasons theme from the Yin Yang prompt.  I think it's even better than our first entry.  Here is each one individually.

I'm in a memory keeping rut right now.  I'm in some kind of panicked standstill, wanting to finish my books for 2011, but feeling fatigued, and with a blurb coupon code that expires at the end of the month.  I have been scrapping but feel so unsatisfied that I haven't uploaded most of them.

Except for this ...

Despite my scrapping slump, I am participating in the Scrap Orchard Creative Team Rumble competition.  I'm on Scrapping with Liz's team with Jenn, Tracy and Kimberley.  We're called the SupercalafragaLIZtics.  The first challenge was called The Sum of Its Parts, and instructed each member to create a layout featuring one word that best describes her, and all of the four layouts had to come together to make something bigger.  Here is our team effort:

You can help us win the competition by voting for the SupercalafragaLIZtics here at this poll.  The poll will stay open for a day or two longer.  There will be three more rounds to go through as well.  I hope we win!

I have more news, too.  I've been accepted on another creative team - ETC by Danyale.  I discovered her when I was on the site team at The Digichick, and I love her warm and inviting designs.  I've used several for my Project: Love, Me pages.  In my scrapping slump I haven't been able to make many pages yet for Danyale, but here is one that worries over the weather and documents my current infatuation with digital plastic pocket protectors at the same time.

Here's hoping for some kind of breakthrough that will get all my pages scrapped and uploaded to Blurb by the 31st ... or maybe I should hope for another coupon code that expires at the end of February ... or March.
