I may not have blogged much lately, but I've still been scrapping

If you have kept with me this far, thanks. Sorry for the crickets around here. I'm coming back with a bunch of eye candy though because even though I have not been blogging, I have still scrapped a little bit.

Today I have 4 pages to share. Three of them I started on Christmas break up in Montana. My mother-in-law and I had to get some craft time in while we were together. :) Of course, you never have everything when on the road though, so the last touches had to wait until I had some time here at home before they were truly finished.

This first one is a fun page about 5 years with my husband. We happened to be in the same spot in July 2010. I thought it was a great way to reminisce.

 This second one is actually a 2011 page. My husband and I ran in the 100th running of the Bay to Breakers race. We got nice medals for finishing too. That is probably one of the heaviest embellishments I've added to a page! But we'll enjoy it more on the page rather than in a drawer.

This one was the oldest 2010 page I needed to do. This was quite the celebration to launch RunMonster out to the App Store back in May 2010. I had made a RunMonster for a different page way back when and it seemed only fitting to try it again for this page. So after finally getting my Silhouette software up to date and reinstalling Illustrator, I was back in business. And to add more fun, why not cut the letters and glue each one separately too...hee hee!

And the last page is another one that I did just this weekend. Since I was using my Silhouette for the RunMonster page, I figured to keep going (keeping with the green monster theme too) and do this Pixar page. I made the "patterned" paper myself with coloring pages found in the Internet set in a collage. I found Mike Wazowski at this site with great SVG files. It was a fun page to create.

And this batch helps me finish my 2010 group of pages...yay!

Well, hopefully that makes up for some of the lack of posting around here. Thanks for stopping by.
