Layouts, Scrapbooking

Holy heat wave, Batman!

Things are amiss here in the gray land of coffee and rain: Seattle broke it’s all time recorded heat record today by reaching 103 degrees. Gaahk! Our house is 94.3 at the moment and my viking body is not happy about it.

It’s pretty much too hot to do anything else but go swimming or collapse naked in front of a fan, so I went for one of the least active activities I could come up with – scrapbooking! Unfortunately the upstairs office (where all my scrap crap lives) was baking in the sun, so I had to drag some paper and supplies downstairs. I quit after this one layout because the process of cutting things was making me sweaty and, as it turns out, fans and paper don’t mix. Sure felt good to make a page again though. Scrapbooking, I missed you!

This is a lift of a page by the wonderful Jessica Sprague from the September issue (I love how you get the September issues of magazines in July) of Creating Keepsakes. I got to use my new favorite font, Reuse by Quickutz.

I’m off to go take a cold shower (and I should probably force the pups in there to cool them off a bit) and then go to the movie theater to take advantage of their air conditioning. When it’s cold outside you can at least put on more clothes; this is torture!

    Gorgeous layout, as always! Boy do I love your scrapbooking style. We’re getting hit by the same heat wave as you, up here in Vancouver, Canada – today was supposedly the hottest day for us though – tomorrow’s a couple degrees cooler. Hooray!

    LOVE your page so much! I’ll be scraplifting YOU!! My husband is a huge backpacker (he is in the Bob Marshall right now) and your pages are so perfect to use for tons of inspiration when I finally scrap his. THANKS!
