what do you think?

This is my first attempt at a contest entry. It's for Corina Nielson's printers drawer contest. I'm really not sure I should even bother entering it, given the entries that are already posted. I think I'm WAAAAY out of my league.

Here's the link to her blog and the contest entries:

I've been agonizing over this layout for almost a week. The sketch was from Club Scrap and I liked the idea of "framing" the pictures with the lines of paper. What was hard was I had my pictures printed too large! At least it's finally done and in my album.

I'm still not happy with this new med for my headaches and migraines. I'm still having horrible dreams and I'm not sleeping good at all. I can't tell if the headaches aren't improving because of the meds or because I just can't sleep. Thursday will be two weeks, and the PA told me to come back if it wasn't better in two weeks. *sigh*

Page in my Club Scrap mini album made from the Collections kit. The brackets I had were too thick for this album, so I traced them on thinner cardboard.

I went to the dr Thursday after work. I told them I had to have something, anything to deal with these daily headaches and migraines. She gave me a med to try. So far all it's done is make me so tired I can barely keep my eyes open and I've been having very disturbing, vivid dreams that I can't get back to sleep from. Something has to give. :(

We are fortunate to live in a small town that has a Briggs & Stratton factory in it. Briggs generously sponsors a fantastic fireworks show each year. Now that we live in town, we can walk over to the park (literally next door to our house) and watch the fireworks from there.

This is a layout based on a Becky Higgins sketch of the fireworks this year.

Assembly Line Scrapbooking with Club Scrap +one

These first two layouts are curtesy of the Assembly Line Scrapbooking class Tricia from Club Scrap held on Thursday night. We sat down with a Club Scrap kit of papers and goodies and premade layouts. Then after, all you do is slap the pictures on. I did have to rearrange the mattes on the Determination layout. I didn't have enough vertical pics for it. Seems I don't take that many pictures with the camera tilted. I need to work on varying my shots more. As it is, they tend to all look the same.

And this is a quick layout with the Paisley kit from Club Scrap. We took this picture Friday night after the Squeelin' on the Square festival downtown. It was hotter than hot and we walked down to the square AFTER both giving blood. Idiots.
