Who says it needs to be in order.....and some exciting news

August 4, 2010

So if any of you have ever found yourself thinking...."better scrapbook in order", "can't do this layout, before I do that layout"....THINK AGAIN, MY FRIENDS.
Look carefully at my layout....picture taken the day the kids went back to school last fall, scrapbooked and journalled August 2011. Yep, almost a full year later. AND GUESS WHAT???There are NO scrapbook police (contrary to what you may believe). I am not a firm believer in too much should always have the freedom to pick and choose what makes one happy. Who said, that as as scrapbookers, we have to do layouts in chronological order. We don' is just the pressure that we put upon ourselves. So, around sometime last fall, I put this picture, along with the papers and embellishments in my favourite zip a file pockets, knowing that the time would come, that I would work on the layout. Here it is....I like it, and I hope that you do to.
I am so super excited....I mean REALLY excited.....very, very excited. Like, I can't believe it excited. STUDIO CALICO PAPER IS ON THE WAY TO STAMPING BELLA.
You got to be excited about this too. It is definately one of my very favourite papers in the world. Never looked forward to a Monday as much as I am looking forward to this coming Monday.
Enjoy the rest of the week.....


  1. I love this layout! And I'm very excited to hear that Studio Calico is on its way...I may have to drop in for a visit on Monday. Because you know I don't have nearly enough paper. LOL. (and I'm a chronological scrapbooker most of the's just the way my mind works).

  2. Another great layout. Keep the ideas coming.

  3. shut UUUUUUUp...thats awsome..I just got a nice lot of Studio Calico from a publication least I know where to go once I've used that up

    I am a total random scrapbooker...I know right!

  4. I love that you said that - it's so liberating. Fabulous layout.

  5. I need to learn to be a random scrapbooker - its so hard to break the pattern lol. I love your layout :)
