A New LO and a Mini-rant...

I'll be the first to admit that I haven't been scrapping near as much as I'd like to be right now.  Partly because of my job and how draining it is working the hours I work-(8pm-4am), and the fact that all of the part-timers seem to keep getting scheduled full-time hours over the last couple of months.  Don't get me wrong, I have no problem working 40 hours a week...IF you want to give me full-time status & benefits...but if you don't, I shouldn't have to.  Sorry if that makes me sound selfish when the economy is struggling and there are lots of others out of work, but that's just how I feel about it.

Anyhow, the few pages I have scrapped, have mostly been Design Team work for the If It's Groovy Blog. For May, Groovy Deb asked us to photograph some shadows-which was totally fun doing I might add!! Here's what I came up with.  Come check out the IIG Blog & see what the rest of my Groovy Sisters came up with!

This is the first time I scissor distressed the edges of a LO and I LUV how it turned out!  Will definitely be doing that again!  I also used a Prima Screenprint Canvas by Donna Downey on this page.  It was so easy to work with I think I just may have to get a few more!  To age the look of my canvas and pp's I inked the edges w/some of my favorite Tim Holtz Distress Inks & spritzed  them w/a mixture of walnut ink & water.  I also tore, crumpled and stapled.  I was even able to use up some old wire words from Making Memories that have been in my scrappy stash since the first or second year I got into scrapbooking, no joke! LOL!!  The bling swirl is my own creation made with Queen & Co. black pearls and the felt flowers I added are actually a dollar store find from a few months ago.  I have to say I think I have a new favorite LO!!! TFL everyone.  : ]
