Am I Done or Not?

As I've mentioned before...I am a very slow scrapbooker.  I can spend hours and hours fussing with a layout.  I don't complain though because I don't mind.  I love fussing around with things...adding things...taking them away...trying other things...moving things around.  Matting...unmatting...inking, cleaning up ink.  I also admit I spend a lot of time locating things (which are usually right in front of my face!)...
but again...I love just about every single second of creating...and if it takes me hours and hours...well, so be it.
Sometimes I leave a layout and then come back the next day and finish it off.  Sometimes things might not look quite done to me but with a fresh eye I'm often happy with the result.
I worked on this layout on Sunday and think I'm done.  I may play around with a few more embellishments but I think I'm pretty happy with the look.
I used a bunch of different things on this layout of my cute grandson being all serious about something.  I love this photo I took of him.  He's not angry here...and only had this expression on his face for a few seconds but I loved it and just knew I had to scrap this photo.  Here is my layout:
Most of the paper was from the Close to My Heart pack called Elemental. I also used Techniques Tuesday stamps for the word "Sweet" and  Unity stamp that say "You Make Me Smile" and also one that has tiny hearts on it. I used some paint on the CTMH arrow and bracket, some CTMH buttons, a CTMH star stamp, a Spellbinders sign hanging thingy and some off white cardstock.  I also used the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge to cut that tag out.  I love mixing prints and colors on is easier when you use papers from a certain line as these papers are designed to coordinate.

So there you go...I think it is DONE!


  1. Oh, Susan! You have described me. I'm a slow scrapper, but truly I enjoy playing with layouts. And I often misplace things right in front of my face. =)
