I'm here, really!

I know it has been quite a while since my last post. Not to say things haven't been happening, but sitting at my craft desk took a back seat to it all...

Today I had a little time (even though I should be doing homework) to get a few projects I wanted to do done. Of course, DH wanted some scrapbook pages, so happily I got two of those done. The first one you'll see below. The other, you'll see soon. :) And, as was the cause of my great want to get to my craft table...I got my new WMS stamps! I went a little crazy with Claire's latest release and many sets came to my little home this time. (In celebration of my new job starting Monday!)

AND...I got a card finished for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz taking place tomorrow! So woot! Two posts right in succession from me!

This layout I want to share today is another from June 2009. I'm getting ever closer to finishing 2009! This was our trip to Alcatraz. The great thing about taking the tour of Alcatraz is that it also includes a ferry ride so you get to see SF from the bay too. For this layout I focused on the pictures from the prison island.

This great paper was a find on a different trip to SF. I cut up the 12x12 sheet so that it would better fit in placement with my pictures. I kept to the yellow-tan tones, but brightened it a little since our pictures were not completely dreary. I had our tickets and the brochure too, but for this page, I thought it was better to let the pictures do the talking. I always stick the brochures behind the page at the very least for safe keeping.

Thanks for stopping by! Remember to come by tomorrow for my card for the WMS blog waltz!

The paper you found for this page is just what it needed to give the page the right feel. It is fun to see what you have done with the pictures we took that very full day.
