My poor blog!!!

2013 was NOT a fun year.  It was filled with many trials.  These "trials" had a MAJOR impact on my mojo and scrappy time.  If I was feeling the mojo, I had no time.  If I had time, no mojo.  And to be honest...neither was around all that much.

But, 2013 wasn't all that bad.  I made my favorite design team at The Scrapbooking Studio!  They decided to allow out of town designers.  I was soo excited to design for Stacy and Amy...they rock!  Amy's store is one of the best that I've ever been in.  I couldn't wait to get started!

Then Thanksgiving hit, I got sick, Wisconsin State gymnastics championships, move from IA, move into a new house in WI, unpack, and Christmas!  Sheesh...

Finally the scrap room is set up, tools unpacked, and the mojo was flowing.  Oh yeah!  Time to create!  I got two lines to work with and today I'm going to share the creations I made using the Crate Paper Flea Market line.

First up is "I was Robbed".  I participated in a chili cook-off for charity at my church in Muscatine.  It was a lot of fun and generated a story I wanted to remember.

Next is a photo of my dad and brother.  These are rare...really rare...and even more rare, my brother smiling.  I soo had to get this one down.  These papers are soo versatile and totally worked for this masculine page.  I even threw in the pink heart border!  bam!  perfect!

This line came with a little ring binder that has "Always Remember" on the cover.  That soo had a year in review written all over it.  The tag type pages were perfect for the smaller photos and adding little do-dad embellishments!

Lastly, a birthday card!  I had a ton of fun working with all these papers and embellishments!  Remember, you can purchase everything at The Scrapbooking Studio!  They have an online shop away!

Awesome awesome awesome creations. 2013 wasn't a banner year for me either after my daughter's accident, but I resolved to pick myself up and figure out how to work crafty time back in this year whether it was easy or not. Luckily I found that I was able to pick my mojo right back up where I left it and from the looks of these projects you certainly did too!! ♥
