The Perils of Having A Scrapbooking Blog

I was telling a friend about how infrequently I was updating my blog, and she said, "You should start a food blog instead. You eat out way more than you scrapbook." Ha! So true. So true. But what I need is more exercise, not more food. So scrapbooking it is.

Here are some layouts from recent Creating Keepsakes issues.
I really love this one. It was a limited supply assignment: five things! FIVE! Including the font I used. But it is one of my all-time favorites. (Click on the pictures to get a bigger view.)

Well, I love this one too. I think it's the sewing that makes them my faves. This is a layout about the kind of candy flavor I love: cooked sugar! I don't eat dessert all that often, but my husband calls me Sugar Bomb because I'd rather have cotton candy than chocolate. There, I said it. I don't like chocolate. Don't judge.

And this one might be simple and grid-y, but it's the subject that I love most: Cindy and Keisha. Damn, how I miss those girls. Come visit me! I have many places I want to take you guys. To eat. Of course.

(Be warned: if you come visit me, you'll eat a lot. And then I'll make you visit the La Brea Tar Pits. That's a fact.)

I'm not sure I can visit you... I couldn't handle all that eating. This whole changing metabolism thing is making me crazy... no matter how much I run or how many tennis balls I hit, I just cannot eat like I used to without having to buy new (stretchier) clothes.

LOVE your layouts... esp that first one with the simple but oh-so-effectively placed stitched partial-frames. LOVE! <3

Oooh! Loving all the stitching--the mushrooms...the meringue...so good.

Laughing about your intro. Eating...*sigh* Maybe you just need a blog about all the crazy things you see on a day to day basis!
