omg! blogger has been really weird lately! i have been trying for 2 days to get on here and update something but argh!!! it wasn't letting me! so sorry about that, but heres youre update!

first things first! the winner of our No Doubt contest was Niya! i hope she had a really good time at the concert this past wednesday! Congrats Niya!!!
as for the rest of my post....remember how i gave you a tour of my crop bag? well...these are the projects i worked on using all the material you saw! all that paper ribbon and fun other stuff!
these layouts are just a few from what i did that night, as the rest are not as near done as these are. the night of that particular crop, i just glued down pictures, ribboned them and maybe stuck a flourish or die-cut on there. the next day off i had, i spent putting flowers on and choosing titles. for me, the flower/title part is the longest process and i save that part for when i get home so i can feel like accomplished something at the crop! on to the pictures!

all of these photos are from my senior year of high school. these first 2 layouts are from a group project in sociology class. we had to make a PSA commercial using only photo stills and voice over. our subject was something like divorce and its effect on children. i want to keep these 2 layouts on the simple side because the journaling will take up most of the page.
it was a really fun project! i cant wait to finish these layouts!

this page is alllllllmost done. i just need to put a journaling block in that upper-left blank spot and a flower on the pointy end of that flourish. i cant figure out the flower part yet...i know i want it to be red, but i cant decide if i want a cluster of flowers or one giant one...
the photos are from one random day at school. we never took pictures for a particular reason, we just loved to goof around and document it!

this next layout may be a surprise because its a layout about one of my guy friends, but it has a bunch of flowers on it! what??? flowers are girly!!! hehehe, i know flowers are girly! but the way i see it: this is my scrapbook, i like flowers, in they go!
meet john. he is a really goofy character that can turn your frown upside down by making this face:
this layout is a little bittersweet for me. i really love the colors, the pictures, the paper, the flowers and the font of the title, but it takes me back to the day these pictures were taken.
this day was the last day that i ever saw my old boyfriend, chris. he moved to texas the day after these were taken and that was almost 3 years ago. :( we've stayed friends, but i still miss him.
this layout was one of the first i ever made...which means i've been scrappin for almost 3 years! woo hoo!
this is the first version of this layout. i made a second one for another album. why? this version is supposed to be about my senior portraits and how much fun it was to take them. the second version is more about the dress i wore, and how its the best dress i have ever owned.
this layout feels kinda boring to me. i want to add something to it, but i have no idea what is missing...what do you think?

this is another boring one for me. i love the photos, but i am not sure how to compliment them. let me know if you have any ideas for this one, cuz i am STUMPED!

this is a reeeeeally simple layout. one flower. a title. two pictures. what more can be said about blue bangs? ok a little more than that. like i dyed my hair purple for spirit week at school, but it turned out blue instead...i still liked it! i might just make it a hidden journaling apot on the back of the page.

i'm not sure what i would journal about in this layout. we went to ala moana. i guess this is another time that we just goofed around and documented it!

this is the last layout i have for you today. one day, i did my hair with a curling iron, got dressed for work and decided to pick up my bass for a little bit. i felt like such a rock star, i had to take a picture. one day, my hair will get long enough to style like this. who knows...i may just update my rock star profile!
these layouts were all really quick for me. i like to coordinate the colors in the pictures to the colors in the papers. i knew that most of my high school photos sported lots of blacks, browns and reds so i just grabbed a bunch of paper from my stash that qualified! after that i pulled out ribbons that met the same requirements and my bag was ready to go!
we have another crop tomorrow night, and if you're lucky, i will take more pictures! i just cant decide what to work on! i have more senior pictures...maybe i'll do that! operation using stash is in effect! see you later!
