I scrapped!

Can you believe it? I can't. How long has it been?? AGES!

I've amassed a lot of pictures since the last time I made any layouts but none of them were inspiring to me so, I decided to make a little album instead.
It's made out of brown paper bags and it's about a 6.5X7" size. Ten inner pages, front & back, and three pocket pages to fill with mementos and such.

I am doing it all in the Stella Ruby patterned papers by Basic Grey. I started on it around 8:30pm and worked on it straight through until about 3:30AM. For my seven hour investment I got the book almost completely finished. All that's left to do is decorate the front of the book, make a few tags and note cards for the pockets, and tie fabric and ribbons on the binder on the side.

My scrapping style is vintage Shabby Chic and that is why I think I have a hard time getting inspired to scrap all guy stuff all the time. I am visually and creatively drawn to the floral, inked and aged papers soo much more that masculine papers.

Anywho, I will take pictures and come back and edit this post so that you can see the book later today or tomorrow. -If anyone is interested.

Of course your readers are interested, at least those of us who know you from your scrapping days, lol. I was wondering if you'd ever scrap again. I can't wait to see your updated post.
