Getting back into the swing of things!

Hi all you wonderful craft loving peeps!  I am really excited about a recent fun crafty thing I have done.  I have gotten back involved with Scrapbook.com.  Yay!!!  I was VERY active in swaps many years ago and I absolutely LOVED it!  I ended up winding down my swaps and stopping swapping (say that 5 times fast) because at the time I was going thorugh a divorce.  I lost my log in info over that time but was able to get back on there with help from them.  So here we go!  I am back on there.  I have started siging back up for swaps over there.  I am really excited to get that rolling again.  I am hoping to reconnect with my old virtual scrapbooking buddies like before.  If you are involved with the community over there look me up.  I am MissScrapsAlot.  :)
Happy crafting all! 
Love - Amanda

Live Laugh Love

Hi all!  I have been continuing to use up some of my left over Close to My Heart paper.  This is my most recent creation.  I hope you enjoy it!  :)

For this creation I used the CTMH Love Life stamp set along with other goodies for my stash over the years. :)

For these flowers I used white flowers that I inked with Sunset and Twilght inks from CTMH so they matched the paper. 

On this second page I have a hidden journaling box tucked behind the photo mat.  I hope you enjoyed my newest creation.  As always I'm just a message away if you have questions.  Craft on my friends!

Hi all!  I have missed blogging. The holidays kept me busy however all is back on track with my creating and crafting.  :)  What I have been up to is using up some of my old left over Close to My Heart paper.  As you know I love to make 8x8 2 page layouts.  Here is what I came up with.  I hope you enjoy it!  :)

For this project I decided to use up some of my old supplies I had on hand.  Might as well use up the stash to make room for more!  :)

Well I hope you enjoyed my creation.  As always if you have questions about things I used or techniques I am only a message away.  :)
Happy crafting all!
