Finally Scrapped

I finally found time to craft. The church that we go to has a scrapbooking fellowship that meets the 2nd Saturday of every month. One of my friends runs it and has been trying to get me to go for a year, but I have always had a reason not to go. And it's free. I had a blast. I got 13 sides (pages) completed while I was there. I finally learned how to use my Cricut that I have had for almost a year. I used it on the Jade Factory lay out. I had started this album almost 3 years ago. As soon as we got home I had the pictures developed and I power layed out all the pictures. I then bought my consultant Pam out of all her Asian Myabi/Mysabi CM paper and stickers. I did about 5 pages and hated every single one. While I liked the paper and the stickers, none of it was my style. Last fall while on a trip to AC Moore I found a slab of paper called Far East. It was on sale for $9.99 and I loved all the papers in it. I bought 2 and then get some metallic mat stacks that matched almost perfectly. I love how the pages turned out. Now I just have to find the time to finish the album. LOL. And Pammy check out all the journaling. There is a ton on the shen lu page but it just blended in. The whole time I was there you were in my head saying, "Crop those photos! Write, write, write!"
