a little bit of scrapbooking.

Today was trash day. It was a sad day. Why? Because the trash can under my desk was empty. Empty because I haven't been doing much scrapbooking or creating in general lately. And that makes me sad. (and sometimes grumpy!)

But, all of that is about to change. Tomorrow I'm once again participating in a LOAD (layout a day) challenge...31 layouts in 31 days. I almost didn't sign up, but I couldn't stop thinking about all the layouts I wouldn't get done if I didn't at least try. I couldn't stop thinking about all the inspiration I would be missing out on by perusing the Flickr LOAD gallery. I couldn't stop thinking about all the fun I would be missing out on by interacting with other scrapbookers/LOADsters. I just couldn't stop thinking about it period, so I signed up! This will be my fourth LOAD and I can't wait to get started.

It's not to late to join in. Go to ScrapHappy for all the details. There will be prizes! :)
You'll need to scroll down a bit for the info.

Looking forward to a full trash can for the next month!

You can see my layouts from two other LOAD challenges in my Flickr gallery.

A little bit of blog hopping...

I have my favorite blogs and don't think a day is complete without going the rounds, checking them all out.

Two of the regular blogs I visit are Yeah, Write (Angie Lucas) and ScrapHappy (Lain Ehmann). Angie and Lain have teamed up and started a new publishing company, Ella Publishing, producing scrapbook related e-books. This week is their grand opening cELLAbration so they are hostessing a blog hop, featuring prizes. Yeah, for prizes!

So, that's what I'm doing this evening, blog hopping and finding some new favorites.
