Not as Organized... & Lovin' It

April 27, 2009

At the scrapbook layout swap that I went to Saturday, many of the ladies were so more organized and prepared than I was. Most of them had brought pictures to add to the layouts that were being swap... Not me! This time, I wasn't as organized so I took that time to work more on my Silver Bella Journal. Here are just a few pages that I got finished.... I just love doing this journal. It gives me the freedom to play and experiment with new things: layering vintage papers, using charcoal pencil and using bits and pieces of things I have collected. The beautiful embossed envelope was from a beautiful thank you card that Stephenie had sent me. I had saved it just knowing that I loved the embossed envelope flap and knew I could put it to use somehow. Now I have a reminder of a dear blogging friend in my journal. I just love using things that mean so much. Tucked inside of the envelope is a mini album filled with pictures from my adventures to Rusty Chandelier.

These pictures are a sweet reminder of all of the fun and lovely treasure that we found.

I am so glad that I wasn't as organized, so I could play and add some more pages in my journal.

Wishing you all a creative day!
