cousins and friends

since last saturday's scrap session, i still was in the mood for some more cutting and pasting considering i had photos printed out that i intended to scrap. unfortunately, work had to get done first so i had to put scrapping on hold. i finally had a few moments to myself last night and here was the output.

i vowed to make my scrapbooking more simple these days so i would get more pages done. unfortunately, i still couldn't just cut and paste. i have a compulsive need to turn paper and embellishments round and round my layout before i commit to glueing it down for an extended amount of time. weird, i know! is this indicative of something psychological/freudian/jungian?... indecisiveness, fear of commitment, fear of making mistakes, making mountains out of molehills. i don't know. at least i attempt to understand myself, even through something as inconsequential as scrapbooking. i do believe we will all benefit if we occasionally analyze ourselves and our hidden motivations and underlying emotions. i don't think we serve ourselves well if we think we are always right. a healthy dose of self-doubt is sometimes just what we need. ok, i'm rambling again. but who knows, this will probably make sense to someone out there.

back to the layout. this one still took maybe a couple or so hours. yup, fast scrapbooking is still an elusive goal for me. i just have to keep trying.

ok so i've missed a couple of S3's (or 4?) but i'm back and i've been up to some scrappiness even then! went to a mini book/techniques class the other Saturday with Cabbie and Ime teaching and discovered the wonders of molding paste. but since i have no photos for that one yet, i'll hold off on the story for another day.

yesterday was one fine day with regards to scrapbooking and, of course, eating! how can one keep sugar and calories away with friends like Tin and Mitch! because we were a bit "bitin" on scrapping the previous Saturday, we agreed to meet at Mitch's again yesterday, Friday. it seems our Mitchgirl is on a mojo roll not only with scrapbooking but with baking as well. she treated us to her yummy homemade tart apple pie and heavenly freshly baked cinnamon rolls which we smothered with here mix of sweet cream cheese and butter spread. talk about fat and sugar! just to make you envious, here are some pics i snapped with my phonecam. :-D

so, we had all that while i attempted to scrap between mouthfuls of pastry. luckily, i was able to do a couple of layouts. Lee did 2 also while Cabbie finished 3 albeit coming in late. Nita didn't scrap but cut us some pretty Tim Holts diecut birds. however all that does not hold a candle to Mitch's whopping 9 layouts! it's even more amazing considering she would occasionally stop and go out to check on her baking goodies. i don't know how she does it!

here are my output for yesterday's session.

Mitch has some really gorgeous, glittered MME papers and these are what i used here. because they are already so beautiful, it made it quicker to move along with a page. i didn't want to load them with much more. so there... hopefully, i shall be scrapping some more this weekend. till next!
