Continuing to LOAD

The computer hasn't been cooperating in the last couple of days. I struggle with hard drive space constantly, and digi scrapping takes up a lot of room. I was putting the finishing touches on a layout and the computer froze. I hadn't saved my file in a while, so I lost an hour's worth of work. Love it when that happens! Here's the page, finally finished. I used the Chit Chat kit from Shabby Miss Jenn. (It's on sale right now for just $2.50!)

Two more pages done for the Disney album as well. Finally finished the pages for MGM Studios, and I've moved on to Animal Kingdom. I used sketches from the great book Page Maps by Becky Fleck for this spread. Paper is from Rusty Pickle, and stamps, ink and cardstock from Stampin’ Up!

What's a LOAD?

I've got my May LOAD blinkie goin' over on the left. You may be wondering "a LOAD of what?" (Be nice, now.) LOAD stands for Layout A Day. I've taken the LOAD Challenge for the month of May to try and jump-start my scrapbooking. In case you haven't noticed, it's been awhile since I posted any pages. Thanks to the great Lain Ehmann for getting this going again. If you don't know Lain, you should get to know her! She does a great scrapbooking podcast called ScrapHappy that you can find over at iTunes (for free, of course).

So here are my first two layouts for the challenge. Still working on the album from our Disney trip back in 2007. I WILL finish this scrapbook if it's the last thing I do! These two pages feature Cosmo Cricket papers, and the photo strips are from Katie Pertiet at Designer Digitals.
