Happy Pages

Thanks again for all the support yesterday. I am trying to get over the shock of my test results and go with the flow. Like the lottery, you have to play to win. So I guess I will cycle in May and see what shakes out.

This past weekend I worked on scrapbooking some of my more upbeat blog postings for the multimedia 2009 diary project. I was in such a good mood this weekend. I loved working with the paper flowers, brightly colored patterned paper, and happy ribbon. Here's what I got...

The following page relates to this post. This page doesn't scan great. The idea was to take floral paper and make some of the flowers 3D with paper and felt flowers held on with brads. I don't know if that came across in the scanner.

This page is about our fun V-day we had this year.

By the way (for those who scrapbook), I was at Michaels yesterday and they had a lot of new cool things. If you haven't been for awhile (I probably haven't been since Christmas) it's worth a trip.

I love Michaels! We have one about 15-20 minutes away from us. I was just there a couple of months ago to buy silk flowers.

Love the pages thanks for sharing. Michael's is great and I just bought a whole bunch of Jolee's on e-bay- I have an addiction the scrapbooking.

I hope May is the month.

Hugs.

Love the pages and love it that you don't use photos yet they're still fabulous.

I will be near a Michael's next week and will definitely go in, plus I have two 20% off coupons from recent issues of CK and SBE! Yippee!

I had read in a couple of places that they were amping up their SB section--hiring more specialists to manage it, redesigning the spaces in the stores, etc. I can't wait to go in myself!

Would love to see more pages... especially if it can help you get happy again.

My weakness is Pat Catans here in Bedrock. They beat Joann's and Michaels in price!

However w/the IVF savings being at the forfont I haven't gone in forever!

Scrapbooking is a great outlet. I scrapbooked my trip to Italy, and it turned out beautiful. The only problem is it took me almost a year to finish it. :)

Glad you're moving forward in May. You don't know until you try.
