It's spring. I know it's only February, but today it was sixty degrees out. The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and my cherry trees are a-blossoming. Thus, Spring.
The week actually began a little grey and rainy. But this is a normal thing, for us people in Seattle.
Still working on the Europe book. I'll do another post later this weekend on that, but it's really not as fun to blog about because, let's face it, blogging about the process of digi-scrapping is a little pointless unless you are doing a tutorial. And I'm not. Because I totally gotta crank out a ton more pages by the end of next week.
So let's talk about pretty paper instead, hmmm?
Despite myself, I ended up liking the Dear Lizzy line quite a bit. I thought it would be too girly and wouldn't really go with my style/photos... but when it popped up at the local Ben Franklin I just had to have a little of it. And before I knew it, I found some other coordinating items had just popped themselves into my little basket. And then I went home, and pulled a few other things from my stash and put myself a little minibook kit together (are you really surprised?).
Anyway, here are some detail shots.
I think I'm going to do this book themed all about the loveliness of being a girl. And, hopefully I'll get to this soon. Like, you know, before Spring is over.
Yet, I still have to finish the Europe book, and I've gotten some art journaling started again... and I want to do a few ATCs this month too...
Good thing I'm doing a half-week of stay-cation the first week in March. Totally going to veg out and spend all day making stuff. It's going to be soo good. (The other half of the week will be spent on a little trip to Portland. I decided to get in touch with my inner hipster and booked a room at the Ace Hotel. Very much looking forward to it.)
Anyway, that's pretty much all I got for now.
Hope you are having a happy Friday and that you are getting a little sunshine. ;)
