Simply scrapping...

Am taking a short break from all that typing for my dissertation, and thought I'd just pop in here to update some of the scraps I've been doing this December:

An album for Junior J's sunday school mate (inspired by all those 6x6 mini-albums that Pooi makes):

I realized that I hardly scrap girl stuff, so I tend to pile on the pink when I do... :p

Some of the inside pages (papers from Echo Park's "Life is Good" collection):

And Junior J's scrappy version of a birthday card for that same friend:

I punched the shapes, he chose where to stick them and glued them on. :)

Then there's this LO I did for a crop with some of my DG girls:

I think the LO's rather sweetie-poo, and a tad different from my usual brown, brown and more brown ink layouts... :p

I really like the Basic Grey Curio papers... especially the flowers!

And I think the title is also a reminder to me to slow down and enjoy the beauty around me... :)
Did you see the title of the book I used?  Matches the theme, yes?

And me and my ex-colleagues did 2x2 inch Christmas-themed magnets and swapped with each other (again, we were inspired by Pooi's swaps!)... and I just got them today:

This was mine... My Mind's Eye papers, and glimmer misting all the way!

All 4 designs together (clockwise from top right): E's happy pinwheel, my poinsettia, P's really cool version that unfolds to reveal a happy Santa, and S's vintage trees with those cute tiny stars!

Ok. I'm off to eat some raspberry ice cream.  Whoops, I mean more typing.  Have a good day! :)
