Starting off slowly....

Well, due to the rainy weather, I was "forced" to stay inside today. It's seems like a million years since I looked at my scrap stuff. I've been really thinking about it lately, and I have pulled some pictures to work on. But then....when I started looking at my stash, I was sooo overwhelmed. I had no idea what to start, what papers to use, totally lost focus on what to do with embellishments.....
I decided I needed to start out slowly and work my way back into the whole process of putting pages together.

I loved this sketch from Frosted Designs! I really want to work on Spring pictures but unfortunately, the weather will not cooperate with us, so I have no pretty flower pictures yet.
But these fun Fall pictures will have to work for now.
These fun papers are from the Dollar Spot at Target from last year. Yes, I'm still chipping away at my stash. I love how the rosey pink compliments all the oranges and browns!

Scrapfit Workout #41 challenged us to use handmade flowers. I started out by using cupcake wrappers. I cut out the centers of each and used Barn Red Glimmer Mist on each of them. I punched out some circles for the centers and Stickled each one. Then I used some miscellaneous leaves to dress up the clusters a bit. The title was made from Pebbles Inc. letters....which of course had to be "doctored" up a bit since I didn't have all the right letters I needed.

Well, there is my effort for today. I really hope I can find inspiration to get more done. I really miss my hobby and my scrapping friends!!
