First, if you haven't seen Adrienne's and Ronalyn's layouts below, you need to check those out, just awesome
Okay back to my post
Today is July 09, 2007 at now we are well into the first month of the second part of the year, my question is, Where are you now?
When is the last time you did a layout that just displayed you life right now?
No elaborate photos, no crazy design, just a checkin sheet on you,, NOW.
Are you happy, are things going okay, are things not working out, what's going on with you.
Well, I'm working on mine right now, self portrait and all, why?
because it begins with me, every scrapbook, every note, every post and then everyone else.
Next topic,, PHOTOS, I hope you guys have been taking some beautiful photos since the summer has began, I just went around my apartment getting some ones with some green it, working on my angles, yada, yada, yada, lol
I promise, I can scrap everyday for the rest of my life and never have to buy any supplies. Seriously. I went waaaaaaaaaayyy back with some KI paper, Scenic Route, and some A2Z. I used MM velvet stickers, HS Frames, mailbox stickers, and ghost letters, and 7 Gypsies stickers. I even tried a little machine stitching, which was NOT easy on all that plastic....and don't worry, I did NOT use my good machine lol. My mom made me promise not to sew paper with it! Tee hee!
And a little closeup. As I said, my machine did NOT like the layers of plastic lol. My thread kept breaking lol.
Alright guys, let's get scrapping!!!!!!

It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark green is also commonly associated with money.
Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision.
Green suggests stability and endurance. Sometimes green denotes lack of experience; for example, a 'greenhorn' is a novice. In heraldry, green indicates growth and hope.
Green, as opposed to red, means safety; it is the color of free passage in road traffic.
Green is directly related to nature, so you can use it to promote 'green' products.
Dull, darker green is commonly associated with money, the financial world, banking, and Wall Street.
Dark green is associated with ambition, greed, and jealousy.
Yellow-green can indicate sickness, cowardice, discord, and jealousy.
Aqua is associated with emotional healing and protection.
Olive green is the traditional color of peace.
GO GREEN GO!!!! I'm getting excited! LOL
Okay, how is your summer heating up,, do you have lots of photos already?
Because I do, just Sunday I took 41 shots watching my dsd and dh play softball and everyone one is a keeper, I'm feeling ambitious and I want to scrap all of them.
so my goal is to push my creativity to the limit and do some multiphoto layouts, simple, clean and meaningful
is anyone game?
and because I'm loving my summertime outdoor photos, we are going GREEN, because........well, just cause, lol
Lets have fun, go search your hard drive, pull out those photos, reach for some green cardstock or pattern paper with a little green in it, I want to see some embellishments, fun journalling, some funky titles and lots of happy faces.
and I will post a prize,,, yes,, because I'm feeling a little generous,, more details to follow
And using Doodle Bugs Paper frills and Making Memories Vintage Chipboard Buttons and my new favorite green, Chartreuse by Making Memories! (In fact, this entire paint collection, is YUMMY!)
Just thought I will let you know that our new color for July is GREEN, I will get the keynote and new banner up as soon as I get some time, this week my family is arriving from Trinidad, so its a little hectic on my end.
However,, if you have some layouts with green or words, or inspirations, feel free to do your thing.
I got a cool layout in mind,,, can you say multi photo layouts, which is the focus for this month,, MISSION: GO TO EXTREME LIMITS,,, get as much done on your layouts as humanly possible
Can you do deal?
