A 10 minute LO!!!

Yay - Jess had a sleep this afternoon (usually a rarity at the weekends as the boys make so much noise!) so I grabbed these 2 photos to scrap. As per my resolution post I decided to scrap it without adding loads of bits and trying to make it look like it used all the latest papers and embellishments - this LO is for me!

I used some old dark green Bazzill which I think was from the Preppie pack, a pink Zig chalk writer, Cactus Pink seeds stamps and pearlescent beige Brilliance ink. The title was done with CI Sonnets Antique fleamarket stickers which have been sat in my stash for ages.

It won't win any awards but I like it and that's all that matters! I've also decided that from now on I won't be uploading my LOs to online forum galleries but only on to my blog and my own Webshots Gallery as to me it seems like forum galleries move too quickly and the only things that tend to get commented on are LOs which use either the latest products, are by well-known scrappers or have threads started by the OP along the lines of "ooh, look at my LO!" I know I scrap just for me and my family but it can be a wee bit disheartening when you do something you love and get very few comments. From now on - if I like it that's all that matters!

There! Jo will now step down from her soapbox!LOL!
