I did, however, find time to craft...finally. I got a sudden urge to make a scrapbooking page about my first apartment. I moved here about 3 months ago (ack time goes fast). I printed out the pictures last night and tonight I measured and made the layered background. So I ended up with this:
I apologize for the flash orb in the center there. My pictures are haunted! No, i just don't have a fancy camera (totally wish I did). But as you can see from the picture, I did a good job layering the background. The detail doesn't come through but the base is a patterned purple piece of paper that actually started as a 12x12 sheet. I cut it down to 8.5x11 because that's the size I'm more comfortable working with. I layered on top of it black cardstock and then white cardstock. But these pictures...sized all wrong.
I could've just went back to my computer and reprinted them but instead I decided to use my square hole punches (favorite supplies ever) and punch them into squares. I didn't care if I cut off parts of the pics. It make it look more artistic. So I ended up with this (again I apologize for flash orbs/blurriness. I usually scan scrapbooking pages in so you can see the details but I was too lazy to pull out the scanner and hook up my computer tonight):
I did a non flash and a flash picture but I promise, the next page I post will definitely be scanned.
