Hey everybody! I know it has been a little while since I last posted. I was working on some projects when I received some pretty awesome news. =) Unfortunately I am not able to share this news with you yet but be on the lookout in the next few weeks for my announcement. Also with this news I have put off some of the projects I was working on so I wont have anything new to show you for the next week or so. I will do a post on some of my favorite sketches soon, so no need to worry, I haven't dropped off the face of the Earth ;)

9+ Picture Layouts

Now that I am only working 1 job, 40 hours a week, I have found a lot more time to scrapbook. I have also started actually putting pictures on my pages as well! When I did samples for the store (Pizazz It! Scrapbooks) I always tried to not use photos so it wouldn't put the person looking at the layout in a "box". Now however, I have plenty of pictures I need to add onto a layout and I have found myself doing 1 "scrapbooky" page and 1 collage type page. I feel that I get my crafty, artistic side shown on the one page and then also I am able to get a lot of pictures onto my layout.

Here are some examples of my "new style":

Echo Park-Victoria Garden

Echo Park is a wonderful company that makes all of their products in the USA!! As a person who worked in a scrapbook store about 8 years this is the 1st company that I recall to make ALL of their products here in the states so it was a pretty big deal to me, not to mention their pattern/color choices always amaze me!

This Victoria Garden line by Echo Park had the perfect colors for my Charleston pictures =)
