Non Sketch Layout!

I don't think I've completed a layout without a sketch in YEARS. I like the idea of having a starting point and somewhere to turn when I get stuck.

BUT... I also missed feeling "free". I missed the feeling of just creating. So I made this layout from ideas I've had stuck in my mind for some time. I'm feeling pretty happy about it.

Now I'm off to work on a mini album. I'm not sure what the theme will be yet, but I have been wanting to start one for so long now, its about time I get on it!

Oh, and I've decided I am going to start Project Life late. I make my own rules ;)

Amethyst 4 (and one from forever ago).

Hello all!

I know its been awhile, I was on hiatus! I wanted to share this week's MWM Amethyst 4 by the talented Kristy Lee.

This was the sketch:

And this was my pretty much EXACT interpretation:

I'm happy to finally be back scrapping again! It feels so good to create. I was looking through the albums  I've created so far and I can't tell you the accomplishment I feel. But then I just got 300+ photos in the mail from Winkflash from over the past year and now I'm back to stressing about being behind. (For those of you who just caught on, yes, I haven't printed photos in almost a year {GASP!!}). 

Do you ever feel super excited to have new prints? How long does the urge to scrap last? Mine is still going strong and I still have another 300+ prints to order before the sale is up (only6cents!!!). 

So anyway, as I was looking back through albums I came across a layout I made back in Nov (or somewhere close) and never had pictures for! I just now printed the Halloween pics! When I made the layout I didn't realize that all my photos of the night were vertical so I had to switch my 2 horizontal placements. I really love how this one turned out!
This is the original that I had (I can't for the life of me remember which MWM it was):
and this is the updated version:

While I'm thinking about it, I also had a question for those of you who do Project Life... would it really be too late to start now? I'm so intrigued and I have a TON of pins on my Pinterest. (Which, btw I'll be adding a follow me button soon). Where do you get your page protectors and what kind do you use? I really just wanna dive into it!

Well, thanks for stopping by!!
