1. Clear layouts rock! thank you to Catherine at Playground of Memories for the cool challenge. I think this may be very addictive. I used a Fancy pants transparency as the base for this layout. Here’s the front. Keep in mind the green is the wall in my scraproom. I also used a sketch from Lynne at Playground of Memories for this page. Love double dipping the challenges.
I used some pics of our cabin for the back of this page. the journaling kind of makes this into a front/back two pager.
2. I have been eyeing these divided page protectors from WRM for awhile. I’m intrigued by the idea of scrapping + storage. This page is going to be after the aformentioned clear layout in my album. I definitely see me using these alot, they are a quick way to store lots of not so great photos. Not sure if the scan or the photo looks better so I uploaded both.
Finally some jewelry I made for the store. I got the design idea for the wrapping from Beadstyle mag. th first one is made with aluminum wire, jade and some gorgeous porcelein beads.
This one is made with 20 gauge stainless wire, a carnelian ball, and swarovsku crystals. The necklace is leather.

Hmmm, the only thing I can think of off the top of my head is books. I read alot and people often ask why I buy books instead of just checking them out. The truth is I love to see them on the shelp. If I love a book I’ll read it over and over. I have a distinct fondness for books that have sequels. Some of my favorites are the
Kushiel series by Jacqueline Carey
Voyager by Diana Gabaldon
The Mayfair Witches and Vampires by Anne Rice
Twilight, of course
Earth Children series by Jean Auel
The Uglies series by Scott Westerfield
Anything by Philippa Gregory
to name a few.
