The Catwalk!

I made the SIStv Catwalk again today! I think this is the 3rd time...it's so super exciting though!

Bernadette Henderson picked this brand spankin' new LO of mine as her pick this week...
As far as the LO goes, it's my most recent...made it last night. Last week I realized my scrappy area was starting to get out of control. I had no room to work and no place to put anything else and no idea where anything was. Forget about trying to find my favorite pair of scissors under that glorious creative mess! So, I started to re-organize. Still not entirely done. But I did get quite a bit accomplished and managed to find things I forgot I had, but then again, doesn't it always go that way with all scrappy people? haha
So, last night when I sat down to make a LO just because I wanted to make a LO, I had a couple things in mind that I wanted to do. 1) I want to continue trying to work on making my designs bolder and my pages pop more and by doing that, I've been trying to do less on my layouts. I always feel that enough is just never enough...if I see empty space, I feel compelled to fill it, but then I'm usually not entirely happy with the outcome. So, like I said, I've been trying to do less, leave more space, cluster things more. I'm going to keep trying to work on this, too. And 2) I wanted to try and use some things from my stash I haven't used in ages that I re-discovered while re-organizing. On this layout, I used some old Hambly rub-ons, BasicGrey paint rub-ons (that hadn't even been opened), some Heidi Swapp decorative numbers tape, and an old piece of cardstock. The funny thing is, before this layout, I hadn't used rub-ons in almost forever and I mean really used rub-ons. I'll be honest...sometimes they scare me. I'm not a very good rubber and I'm so afraid I'll mess up the rub-on and then it's too late. Anyone else like this?

I will say it felt totally good after the LO was finished. I really like it. It's masculine, and funky and cool and it has some Love, Elsie and vintage elements on it. Really want to scrap another page now!

Until next time...
