Start to Finish

Every month, Erin Lincoln puts together one of my favorite columns over at CKOnline – Start to Finish – where you get a peek into a scrapbooker’s creative process. This month it was my turn to ramble on about my layout, you can go here and see it!



Grin and bear it

I even used…shock! Horror! Jolee’s stickers! I’ve never used anything like that before, so I had a lot of fun. I think I’m getting into themed products…

I was reading about Staci’s adventures in Diet Coke addiction and thought I should mention my own little victory – I quit the evilness (aka Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi) cold turkey last week! I had two and a half days of absolutely bitching migraines (and visions of babies crawling across the ceiling), but now I don’t even have any cravings. And get this – I sleep through the night. Eh? Eh? Yeesh, I’m proud. I haven’t slept this well in years.

Now if only I could stop eating chocolate and potato chips…

    Good for you on giving up the Pepsi. If you figure out how to give up the rest – let me know!

    You don’t “know” me – but you added me to your Flickr contacts yesterday! :) (Invincible_Summer) I first saw your Flickr page when I was looking at photos posted in a Harry Potter group – I saw the pictures of you, JK, and Bobs at the HP party. Bobby was so cute, that I looked through your photo set for him – then I noticed that you had a scrapbook set. I *loved* your scrapbook pages, and added you as a contact so I could see anything new that you added.

    I was so thrilled when I saw your post about CK (SoY) – and I voted for you! :)

    So, I guess you could say – I am a big fan, and it really made me feel good when you posted comments on some of my pages, and added me as a contact. I just wanted to tell you that. :)

    I loved reading about your scrapping process! And that layout rocks, even with the Jolee’s. ;) I’ve been bugging Linda to do a Jolee’s challenge with me for weeks now, but she refuses! I’ll show her yours and I’m sure she’ll change her mind. :p

    Now, I have to say, only you could make Jolees look as cool as you did on this amazing page!!

    Tusen takk for flotte tips! Jeg har gitt opp scrapping, men her gir du meg inspirasjon til nye løsninger og form!

    Du takler Jolee’s også du!!! ;-)

    Skulle gjerne hatt et fotokurs hos deg! Digger bildene dine!! Du forklarte meg en gang hvordan du gjør bildene skarpere og klarere, men det holder ikke… he, he

    Ha en flott uke!!

    I just discovered you from the Start to Finish article. I just love your style and have enjoyed seeing your other scrapbook pages on twopeasinabucket. I am a simple, clean scrapbooker too. I bookmarked your blog so I can come to it for inspiration. Thanks for sharing your process and your pages.
