I went out to lunch with some friends today and found out that one of them is pregnant...with TWINS! So as soon as I got home (after I called the boiler man because my house is freezing and that's an amusing story I will probably share on my other blog) I made her a congrats card.
She won't find out boy/girl for another six weeks at least so I thought this week's Splitcoast color challenge might be good since it's blue *and* pink. I wanted to put something in on the card base, a background stamp or something, but then I decided to go more CAS and leave it as-is. I used the soon-to-be old Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch (new SFF sketch tomorrow):
Slightly modified, because how often do I actually get it 100% right. Anyway, since the new mommy-to-be is one of my few really good friends here in England, I suppose I shall soon be back in production on baby books. I'd had this goal this year to do 100 pages (so, 50 double-page layouts) for OUR scrapbooks, but so far I've only managed two pages...
And there they are! It felt so good to be back to scrappin', so I need to figure out how to balance my card-making, scrapbooking, baby book production, reading, and cross stitching time (thank goodness classes are done with). I can't have any more hobbies, though I would love to learn how to quilt, I don't think I should add anything else in here! This layout was interesting--there was so MUCH red in the photos that I wanted to do a more neutral background so that red could pop, so I ended up with Night of Navy, River Rock, and Garden Green, because Okinawa is all Garden Green. Yep, these pages are from 2008...I'm way behind, BUT I shall never be bored!
Thanks for stopping by today!
