I'm still here!

I know, I know, it's been forever since I posted on here.  It's just that I really haven't done anything crafty in quite a while.  But, I've cleaned off my desk and I've done a little bit of reorganizing, so I'm hoping that will help me get my mojo back.  Meanwhile, here's a card I made a couple of weeks ago that I never got around to posting here.

Aldo and I are in the process of SLOWLY redecorating our room and we've gone with a corral and grey color palette.  I had pulled out some of my copics to help up decide on shades and those colors were the inspiration for this card.  I embossed a piece of Smoky Shadow cardstock with my Seeing Spots cuttlebug folder, stamped a piece of Berry Sorbet with my Newsprint stamp in Vintage Cream, layered some velvet ribbon and bling over the layers and added my butterflies from Blue Skies last. 

Earlier this week, I visited Archiver's while I was in Austin and I found tons of inspiration for my scrapbook for the cruise we took 2 years ago.  Yes, I'm that far behind. :)  I purchased a kraft 8.5 x 11 binder from Hampton Arts.  It's meant to be one of those everyday life journal/scrapbook type things, but I like the size and I like that the binder itself can be customized.  I took plenty of pictures, bought lots of paper and embellishments, and I am now ready to start scrapbooking our trip.  I already did one page, yay me!  And, I'll post it on here as soon as I remember to photograph it.

Thanks for stopping by!
