Okay, let’s all let out a collective gasp.
I know, I’m doing the same thing . . . right there with ya.
It’s been weeks since I’ve scrapbooked anything.
Yesterday I thought to myself, “I’m going to scrap a page!”

However, this morning when I woke up (at 5:30 to get my daughter off to Idaho!), I was feeling less than inspired. I was just going to share the photos themselves because I just couldn’t muster up the creative scrapping energy to do it.

Granted, I am feeling motivated to create, but just not with scrapping.


Today. On my way to get my Diet Dr. Pepper/ 1″ Real Dr. Pepper combo with pebbled ice so I can drink/eat it like Dr. Pepper slushy delight. My new favorite thing. Must have been what inspired me.

Yes, it took me most of the day to twiddle through it. My intent was to use stamps with paint because I constantly look at those things that I cannot give away, yet never use. But it had been so long since I’d used my black paint that it was all dried up.

Sad. I know.

Ink didn’t cut it either, so I ended up redoing the page with my Silhouette and a font. It was suppose to be a more “what to use”, but didn’t end up that way. It’s the thought that counts, eh?

Instead, I used my usual, American Crafts cardstock along with a lovely Loni Stevens border design. The file folder is one I created for Silhouette as well. A little 7gypsies photo anchor and my trusty punch label and voila.

And here’s a closeup of those photos. Ya just gotta get the real affect of the middle photo. In case you haven’t read the journaling, Jordan had gotten her wisdom teeth out just three days before. That middle photo is so that she won’t feel so out of place with her chubby swollen cheeks. :)
