I'm scrapped out.
I know, I know, it's nigh impossible to believe. Me, Electra the psycho-scrapper, who would sell her first-born for another hour of uninterrupted scrappin-time. (Fortunately it's never come to that), is scrapped out! With only a couple of little side expeditions (like to buy food and cook same food), I scrapped for three days. No work to interfere. heavenly. HOWEVER (and there's always a HOWEVER in life, isn't there), my back has totally given up the ghost and is on strike. You could say, it's holding a "sit-in" LOL
Usually when this feeling takes over, I can sit down at the puter and feed my addiction that way, but I haven't been able to do that for any length of time today either. Like I say, I'm scrapped out. So I did yardwork, went to the garden centre and bought my plants. For those of you in the warmer parts of North America and beyond where you actually HAVE a summer, this may seen a little late, but trust me. If we plant our outdoor gardens BEFORE the May long weekend, IT WILL SNOW on the defenceless little saplings. It's a fact. Count on your fingers with me, kids. That gives us a three month growing period. Stoopid. Our province has more sunshine than any other spot in North America, trouble is those sunny days often include snow. It snowed at my wedding, July 19th.(ish) who remembers their wedding anniversary? Oh right, those people who are STILL MARRIED! Well, some things are better forgotten. That's all I'll say on that subject. Trust me, it's better this way.
And I went out on an adventure from Keri Smith's "How to be an Everyday Adventurer" in which I had to wander aimlessly. I cut up a bunch of slips of paper with Left or Right on them and if I chose Left, I had to drive two blocks and turn Left and vice versa if I chose Right, and then see where I ended up, Well, where I ended up was at the most spectacular row of flowering cherry trees all in a row. Awesome! I'll show you some pics tomorrow. They were so pretty!
This LO is for a monthly challenge I do at a local scrapbook store. They give you what you have to use, of course and while the items are not what I would normally put together, that's the point of a challenge right?
Now I know you saw this picture of the violinist only a few days ago, but I needed to scrap her and the colours in the challenge kit seemed to speak to me.
I added a couple of closeups, one on the flower (there was green tulle in the kit) and the other of her wings, I love how I did them with the Robins Nest Whachamacallums. I know there's a real word, I just can't remember it right now.
