Dirty Scraps : Pet Peeves

DirtyScraps - Just Say No

I just did this layout for the first challenge over at Dirty Scraps! The challenge was about a pet peeve, but also to put a positive spin on it of sorts.

So i journaled about dealing with friends who are just full of passive aggressive crap. my positive spin is mostly about learning how to stand up for myself, instead just letting them pull this on me again and again.

January Commit2Paper Layouts

Jan C2P: Where we go

This page actually means a lot more to me then I would normally let on. I found this photo in my things and it made me catch my breath a little. My friends looked so happy here, and so young. We used to be so close, but things have changed so much. But as the title says, no matter where we go? We were there. we had that moment and that friendship.

Jan C2P: Williamsberg, VA

Some old photos from a band trip in high school.

Jan C2P: K&C
Wedding photos!! My first wedding related layout.

Jan C2P: Destination
I love the way this kit lends to traveling photos.

Sharing: Plus 3 Network

My friend Meag clued me in to the Plus 3 Network website.

The main idea of the website is they donate money for the workouts you accomplish. While the website seems to attract the really hardcore athlete (the 26+ mile trail run type) Meag and I have joined in an attempt to raise money, as well as for an extra motivation for doing some well needed exercise.

Plus with all things, it's come down to a friendly wager. Whoever raises $10 first owes the other a $10 iTunes card. I think she's going to wind up beating me, but she's always been more focused.

Check it out if you're like us, and make sure you add me as a friend if you do join! Hey we all need every bit of motivation we can get right?

Fun Finds: Add it to my kit list

I was trolling about on my scrapbooking blogs, and found this kit (sadly it's sold out!) It's done by a Noel Mignon, and I believe I've found another kit I want to add to my list of wants and desires. Look at all the fun little bits! Especially the vintage twinge!!

The design blog is full of great ideas. So much fun!

Mosaic: Faith

Faith Mosaic

1. Truly Madly Deeply, 2. the cross i bear, 3. God forgive me....i'm about to sin..., 4. ANGEL STATUE - Infragilis, 5. One Faith, 6. Notre Dame at Twilight, Paris, 7. ANGEL STATUE - Silence, 8. Il mio credo in un tatuaggio., 9. A Believer, 10. Wish, 11. The Holy Quran, 12. In Praise of Women, 13. daily reminder ..., 14. The Beginning of Faith, 15. Faith, 16. Faith...

faith –noun
1. confidence or trust in a person or thing: faith in another's ability.
2. belief that is not based on proof: He had faith that the hypothesis would be substantiated by fact.
3. belief in God or in the doctrines or teachings of religion
4. belief in anything, as a code of ethics, standards of merit, etc.
5. a system of religious belief
6. the obligation of loyalty or fidelity to a person, promise, engagement, etc
7. the observance of this obligation; fidelity to one's promise, oath, allegiance, etc.

I'm not sure what prompted me to choose faith for this week, but it was the word that popped into my head.

I hardly would call myself a religious person. The last two times I was in church were for my wedding and Christmas, but I do believe that faith is beautiful. In all forms. And faith is more than just religion and spirituality. It's faith in others, trust, and love.

Sometimes, faith is just taking that leap.

Pretty Monday: Rockstars

Who says pretty isn't sometimes wearing guyliner and completely rocking out?

Boys Like Girls

Boys Like Girls

Boys Like Girls
(all photos are by me)

Boys Like Girls are slowly becoming one of my current obsessions. I'm desperately in love with their music, and honestly the put on a really good show when I saw them.

So maybe it's true
That I can't live without you
Maybe two is better than one
There's so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
And you thought that it got me coming undone
And I'm thinking two is better than one

Starting again


I've separated myself from blogging here for too long. I think most of it is to blame on the wedding and the lack of time I've had to scrapbook, but more than that, I've just been away.

I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, and I'll try working on posting regularly. With that in mind, I'm going to try and work on a few themed posts.

Monday - Pretty Monday (everyone needs something pretty on Mondays. Expect photographs, stories or layouts. Something to jump start your day.)

Tuesday - Mosaic Tuesday (collecting themes for those interested)

Friday - Share something (either a new website, or product or something cool I found.)

Throughout the week expect posts on layouts or other scrapbooking things, as well as a few general observations on life.

Can't wait to get going again!
