Wow, I actually have something new!

Yeah, I know I've been MIA lately. I wish I could tell you it's because I've been extremely busy but that's only half of it. I've also been a little lazy. I know what you're thinking; how can I be too lazy to scrap. Well I guess sometimes a person needs a break. So now that I have the excuses out of the way let me show you my newest creation:

I made scarves for most of the girls in my family last year for Christmas. My aunt saw my sister wearing hers and wanted me to make her one. I told her it would be a while and now 9 months later I have finally made one for her. I still haven't made up my mind if I am going to put tassels on it yet though. What do you think?

Before and After

Have you ever looked back through your scrapbooks and decided you just did not like the way the page turned out? Well today's post is my example of this. When I first scrapped this page I didn't have the stickers I needed to finish it so I went to the computer and printed out some clipart that went with the theme. I didn't really like the end result then but I went with it because it's what I had at the time. Here is the before picture. Don't laugh (okay, laugh if you want but don't tell me about it).  

These were horrible! I didn't even trim around the clip art. I just cut them into squares and stuck it on the page. What was I thinking?

Well, now I have this awesome new machine that cuts designs for me! I have never had the desire to go back and redo all my scrapbooks before and for the most part I still don't but this page just needed to be fixed. Here is the new and improved layout.

I had a hard time hiding the adhesive from the old clipart (that's why that cat is so crooked) but I think this looks much better. What do you think?
