I've done a few layouts in the last month or two. I've been alternating between old and new pics and trying to mix in some of my older papers with newer ones. I've recently discovered 6" x 6" paper pads and I've been mixing some of those papers in too. I've also been watching a lot of videos by Shimelle Laine and you can see her influence in the 1st and 3rd layouts. The first layout was also inspired by a sketch from Scrapbook Generation.

I have been looking for a new scrapbook forum for a while. For a long time I called Kindred Creations home, but it really slowed down after it was sold. I finally decided to move on as I wasn't getting the inspiration there I used to. I tried Two Peas in a Bucket for the last year or so but it also changed when it was sold and some of my fave posters stopped hanging out there. I'll still check in there once in a while because I love the Glitter Girl videos done by Shimelle Laine ! But, I'm happy to say, I have found a new scrappy home. It is called Scrap N Yap and there is certainly plenty of yapping going on there. The good kind of yapping though! No drama, no meanness, but plenty of enabling. The best thing about this forum is it is not associated with any business so we can talk about all our favourite stores and manufacturers. Some of the members are even store owners and let me tell you they listen to everything we say and they take customer service seriously. Want to know who has what in stock or who has a sale on? Check out the Deals and Steals area. Need some inspiration to use your stash? Check out the 50 Projects or Bust challenge or the Peep Your Products challenge. I guess you can tell I really love this new site. LOL Come check it out!

I took a bit of a break from scrapbooking last year and tried my hand at doing other crafty things. What I realized was I really need to scrapbook! It gives me a creative outlet that nothing else seems to satisfy. And to be honest it's the one craft I do that I'm usually happy with the finished product. It the last month or so I have finished more layouts than I did in all of last year. I'm going to a crop in a couple of weeks and I hope to get at least 5 or 6 more layouts done then. Here are what I have done so far.
