since i'm fairly new to scrapbooking i decided to do 8x8 layouts because it doesn't seem as intimidating as 12x12. throughout my observations, i've noticed that some will do half layouts... 6x12 and i thought it was pretty clever. i looked around for 4x8 page protectors or really any other size pages for my 8x8 album to no avail, so this morning, i decided to cut a 8x8 page in half and make my own;)

here is my first attempt at an odd shaped layout and i really like the contrast to the full pages when it's in the album; it keeps you guessing;)

supplies used:
paper: my mind's eye; bohemia- boulevard "family ties" harlequin/green
chalk: colorbox chalk- cheastnut roan
letters: american crafts thickers; daiquiri black
embellishments: fancy pants; harvest felt shapes

what a ride!

massive update

i've done quite a bit more scrapping lately... i don't know what's gotten into me!
the next couple posts will be what i've worked on lately. expect a few;)

after getting our first ultrasound and realizing that my free days are numbered, i guess i've got a little fire under my butt. that and i've recently acquired some nifty details, etc. from work (archiver's). enjoy!
