Recent Scrappiness

I finished this layout last night for the Survivor challenge over at TallyScrapper. We had to use a poem for our journaling (hey, I like poetry), follow a Tim Holtz distressing technique (right up my alley), and use a frame around our pic reminiscent of vintage photos. Um, am I crazy or was this challenge MADE for ME?!!! Seriously! I LOVE how this one came out. Love it.


This layout is my first EVER 12x6! I followed the sketch from Challenge #97 at Lotus Paperie (where I believe they're introducing me today, yay!). These pictures are from 1999! Recognize them, Miranda? ;)

I figured I can include it in Alex's baby album pretty easily since the album is 12x12. I may even get crafty and sew down the approximate middle of a page protector, essentially resizing it. But that's not happening on THIS day. No, THIS day I have a headache. I'm pretty sure I've gone so long without my allergy medication that the sinus pressure has built until it's finally unbearable. I'll be going out today for drugs. Hopefully BEFORE my head explodes.

But first.....COFFEE! It just finished brewing, thank heaven. Have a happy Thursday!

Hi
Did you guys ever receive the print you won??? I just heard from Altered Route and she didn't get hers. Now I'm worried I set them down somewhere and only thought I mailed them. Please let me know.
Love your scrappiness :)
