Long Time, No See.....

It has been quite a while since I updated the ole blog. Not that I haven't been scrapping, just that I have been scrapping less. This girl has been pretty busy! In March I was promoted to a new position and it has been super fun, demanding and mentally exhausting. These are all good things! I really LOVE my new job! I have learned and grown so much in these last few months, it's crazy! So, now you know why I have been absent.

Now that I got all of the excuses out of the way, how about some creativity!

Young Man Layout
I created this layout using Bella Blvd products! You may have already seen it on the Bella Blvd blog a while back. I love pairing the black and white photos with colorful patterns, it gives the photo an extra pop!

A closer look..
I trimmed down the feathers to a smaller version so they didn't overpower my photo.

And yes, I am still loving flags! I may use them forever!

So much has changed in the Scrapbooking world since I last updated! We said goodbye (sadly) to Archiver's stores and 2 Pea's. Today I also received notice that Hannah's is closing as well. If you are near the Wisconsin/Illinois border you are probably familiar with Hannah's. It is really sad to see businesses closing doors, please please please support your local Scrapbook Store's if there are any in your area. While I do shop at the big box stores, they just don't have the latest/greatest products that are out there. 

Thanks for stopping by and listening to me preach a bit! But really, support local business!

Till we meet again...

These are great Sheri. Yes, it is sad that we are losing our scrap stores. I really miss Archiver's. Living as close to the MN border as I do, I had quite a few to visit, depending on which side of the Twin Cities I was in. HL, M's and J's just don't have anything worth while. I was up in Door County a few days ago with a friend and there is a scrapbooking store in Green Bay called Creations Galore, I think?? They don't have a ton of variety (lot of WRMK's lines mainly) but it sure was nice being able to peruse. Of course I spent more than my share. LOL
