Creativity Overflowing

I don't know what it is but lately I've been feeling really creative. I'm not sure if it's the results of having a clean scrap room but I love that I can go in and just scrap and not have to deal with a huge mess.


In the last three weeks I've probably scrapbooked 12 layouts. Keep in mind I haven't scrapbooked in years (I've just collected the supplies). Another thing I know that has helped is Logan's 2 1/2 - 3 hour naps.








































Also I've been wanting to buy a bunch of fabric. I recently purchased this book and can't wait till I make one of these bags. There is the cutest picnic bag made out of a astro turf and lined with a vinyl tablecloth. Most of the bags require no or very little sewing. They use staples and duct tape for a lot of them so they should totally be ones I could do.

I also read a really cheesy romance novel in just 3 days. I'm too embarrassed to share the name but it was so good and I'd recommend it to everyone but it's out of print. It was good though. Now I'm reading Pride & Prejudice. I read it in high school and hated it but since I love the movies I figured I need to give it a second chance. So far I'm loving it.

I love your layouts...very simple, but nice.
I'd love to see your astroturf bag - if you decide to make it.
I must know what your cheesy book is. Despite it being out of print, there are these things called libraries... :)

HOLY CRAP. These are the kind of layouts I see in magazines and think "Who has time to do pages like this." AMAZING! I'm very impressed...and Logan looks dang cute on every page. I am very tempted to tell everyone the name of your book since you emailed it to me...

You are so good that you are scrapbooking! I go on spurts. I will do it faithfully for like a month and then I don't do it again for a year. To say the least, I am about two years behind on Max's book. If you know of anyone who scrapbooks for a living....let me know. I am to the point where I just want to pay someone to catch me up! Your pages are so cute and I am jealous that you have a scrapbooking room. Maybe when we get a house someday, I can get a scrapbook room and that will give me motivation....yeah right!!

Sabrina,
Your scrap pages are adorable. I love them. For having a five year break I am really impressed with the creativity. I am a collector of supplies also. I hope I get to use them before they are out of style.

Oh come on Sabrina . . . just name the cheesy romance novel . . . I mean how cheesy can it be?? Oh wait, it's The Velveeta. Hee hee . . . it will be our little secret. Oops, I've let the secret out already to a few people?

I just looked at your pages again. I am a 8x11.5 girl, but I might have to steal some of your ideas and adapt them.

Those scrapbook pages are so cool. I'm glad you got a chance to get those done. P&P is the best. Now you have the images from film or A&E to fill your head while you read.
