August Smashbooking SHOCK!!!

I completed a total of 4 smashbook pages this crop and was shocked to realize I have caught up to real time!!! I have finished Halloween of 2013 and have a 2-month rest before the 2014 Halloween photos can be printed on Nov 1!

I found some really lovely Anna Griffin papers that have that perfect smashbook feel to them! And got to use some more of my ephemera stash!

Here's what got done...

Smashing out Halloween in July


I had to stop and pick up my pictures at WalMart, so I was a bit late to the crop. I usually photoshop my pix and upload them to walmart.com and have them shipped to the house, but I ran out of time this month and had to do the 1-hour photo, lol. I thought my kids were busy during the school year, but summer time seems to be even busier!

Being late to the crop, I didn't get as much done as I was hoping. After I got home and got everyone to bed, I stayed up and spread my scrapbooking stuff all over the floor and cropped until I thought I was going to fall asleep on my embellishments, lol!

Happily, I completed 8 pages, a personal best record for 1 day of scrapping!!! I'm really enjoying using all the fun ephemera in this smashbook-type project (and I have quite the stash that needs to be used up, lol). The hands on, tactile experience is most enjoyable for me, although I struggle with the aspect ratio due to the fact I am so used to Photoshop where I can easily make anything smaller or larger. Digital flowers are easily made smaller, real life silk flowers are not, lol! Eventually I got everything to fit on the pages...
