onwards, forwards, & scrapping

Thanks for your kind comments & support. The woman probably does belong in a loony bin somewhere, and yes, many people who have heard the story suggested punching her. Let me tell you that at the time I just barely resisted. Next time I'll be sure to put some phone calls in to my best SCRAPPIN buddies! God I love you guys.

SO...onwards, forwards and yay for scrappy goodness in the form of my monthly kit from Memory Creators (aka MC)!

You know, when I first started on a DT for a kit club, I struggled. It was difficult for me to scrap my style, without being influenced by the "matchyness" that is a kit. Tons of people love that...and kudos to them. Me? Not so much. I'm not a matchy scrapper...to say the least. But for many months now, I have relished the little box of goodness that comes to my door step and opened it with artsy anticipation...wondering and imagining what possibilities it might hold this month. I like using the supplies in different ways...using bits and pieces in my OWN way. I've learned to take it as a creative challenge...how can you use this kit to make layouts and projects that are YOU? I love it.

So here's what I did last night with the September kit from MC. Lots more to come. Yipee!
