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...

Smash in a flash!

This crop was fruitful! I got 5 pages done, talk about smash in a flash, wheeeee!!! I also bought myself a new goodie: the Sakura Gelly Roll 08. It's that white pen in the very bottom of the first photo, it writes white opaque ink so you can see it on dark paper (you can see that I wrote with it on the bottom of that first page).

I love opaque gel pens. I had the entire Pentel Milky collection of opaque gel pens, but they dried up so fast, and I was really disappointed to have wasted my money on them. But Sakura is one of the best names (right up there with Copics and Marvy Uchida) so I'm convinced it was worth the investment this time, however I was cautious and only purchased one instead of the entire collection, lol!

You will notice some papers from my Quote The Raven kit HERE. Also, I did some hand-written journaling on the pages after the photos were taken. More smashbook entries HERE.
