Slow Week

I had tons on my to do list and didn't get but one thing on the list finished!!! School this term is a bit tougher - I am actually having to study this go around and not knowing it all so trying to get a study routine down is kicking my butt.

Anywho, I made one card and one LO this week.

Here's the card:


This LO is for my BFF from high school, Julie. She has been through some rough stuff in her life and I fully believe God will not give you more than you can handle and she is proof of it. I am so proud of her and happy for her right now as I truly believe she has finally found her soulmate!!! This is one of their engagement pics I snagged from her and turned BW so I could scrap it - I really love the pic and thought it needed a girly feel to it. Of course I turned it BW because they are wearing Longhorn jackets (Hook'em Horns)and the orange would have def clashed with the papers!!! I plan on doing another pic of theirs just looking for the perfect papers to use!!!

Here's the LO:


So, what do you think????

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Happy Scrappin'!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
