Why, yes I DO...

...scrap, that is.

I just haven't had time to scrap as much inbetween my cards, lately - and the LO's I HAVE been making (there's a bunch) have all been for one secret project/assignment or other. I promise. This hasn't become a card-only-blog just yet! ;)

I'm a bit annoyed with the postal services. (Emphasis on the "VERY".) As I might have mentioned, I was going to make some stuff for Petaloo's booth for CHA! I was thrilled, excited and over the moon with pride! So I waited. And waited. And waited. Finally, we talked about it (I have the sweetest, most supportive & understanding bosses!) and I sent over some of my previous work in a box that was supposed to take a week. Max. I signed for that service, and paid extra to make perfectly sure it'd get there on time.

The box Petaloo sent for ME arrived in their own mailbox yesterday. The one I sent for them took two weeks to arrive and showed up a week after CHA.
"Well, forgive me for not leaping for joy. Bad back you know..." (Scar/The Lion King)
Oh well. I guess it wasn't meant to be, and at least no one had killed or stolen the boxes.
Silver lining, right?

So, anyhow... I thought I'd prove to you that I DO scrap. This LO came together from things lying on my scraptable. Guess that proves I need to start a good spring cleaning in here? ;)
Better get going.

Have a wonderful weekend!


Flowers: Petaloo! :D

Oh life just isnt fair is it? It really isnt! I have to say I feel sorry for you, because onle a fellow addict could understand how extremely frustrating that is. So just telling you that I get it. On another note, this is a stunning layout. If you create this with scraps on your table I wonder what you can create with proper collections etc. You should scrap more.

This layout is just fabulous! The composition and bits and bobs just just blow me away. This is why I don't scrap. I see gorgeous work like this and find it way too intimidating. LOL xxD
