I finished a layout and was going to post. Then unthinkable happened. My camera is not working!! Can't believe it. I've been using it everyday and it worked just fine yesterday. I am mad. I am sad. I am upset. I guess I have to either have it fixed or buy a new one. I suppose Economic Stimulus Payment will really be used just as expected. I have to file tax first though. It's time to do it anyway. If my camera is not working tomorrow and I don't post anything (not that waiting for a day will make my camera work), I will be doing taxes.

This is for sketch #12 of 52 Sketches...52 Weeks. The shape (I don't know what it's called) that a chipboard letter"d" is on is something I wanted to use. You would see them a lot on any galleries. But I haven't seen them at the craft store I go to. So I hand-cut it myself. I am pretty happy with the outcome.

I made a change on the layout I did yesterday. Took off yellow card stock and used a patterned paper. I didn't think I could do anything else without damaging the ribon frame so that's all I did to it. But I think it looks better. 2nd layout is of the last photo taken in the hotel room. And it is for A Scrappin' Friendsy's this week's challenge.

Happy Easter!! It's a little cold to me, but it is sunny and looks very pretty outside. We had Easter dinner at home just ourselves this year. I've eaten a lot of ham and am still very full.
Too bad that scrapbooking doesn't burn as much calories...
Here are two LOs I have completed so far today. On the second layour, I was going to tuck the ribbon on all sides, but as I was doing so, I realized I didn't have enough to do that. So this is how I did. Also, I was going to use a patterned paper on background. But I changed my mind and that turned out to be a bad choice. I really don't like this one. I couldn't sleep last night and I am too tired to do anything about it now...

I like to scrapbook Friday evenings. During a week, I have to go to bed at reasonable time, so that I wouldn't be too tired at work the next day. But I don't have to worry about that Friday nights. :) So I usually stay up late. And that's what I did tonight. I have done 3 pages and am posting 2. I will retake a picture of the last one tomorrow morning. It's always hard to take pictures in my room at night time.
Now, the first one is really nothing. In fact I almost didn't post. I am not sure it could still be called a layout. But I have pages like this every now and then or I will never be able to scrap all my photos. I was going to put these 3 photos and 2 photos of Lombard Street on a same page. But I decided to do a separate one for those 2 photos.

The layout, "Smile" was done for gettin' sketchy, sketch #9. This is my first entry to that challenge blog. The second layout is a continuation of "Fisherman's Wharf" I posted yesterday. The last two are photos of San Francisco Bay. There is this challenge on A Scrappin' Friendsy to use multiple photos and I happened to have that many photos :) Besides I always stick in as many photos as I could.

The circle on the first layout had been cut already. I cut it when I was working on the layout, "Hollywood Baby" the other day. It turned out a little too small and I didn't use it. I normally arrange everything first, then start using adhesives. This time I just started putting them on from the beginning. I put a sticker on the big tag. It was right color and right size. I applied ink around the tag, around the circle and around title circles. (52 Sketches...52 Weeks #11)

I spent more time scrapping this layout than I normally do. That's because of the beads I threaded. It was a sunny day and she was wearing shades. I got this title from that. I don't have a circle cutter, so I wouldn't be able to make a perfect circle. I hand-cut the circle and distressed all around it. (PL #75, MP)

I had to charge the battery before uploading the pictures tonight. Since we are losing an hour, I didn't stay up this late, but here I am.
I also added some buttons to the flowers below.
I did just one layout today. I used 2 snap shots from a drive to Big Bear. (Pencil Lines #74)

All I can say about today's layout is that it's still a page that goes into the album and I can move onto next photos. I was so tired and sleepy I just wanted to finish. I used some paper strips and patched like you do quilting with fabrics. I pasted 5 strips of papers side by side on a card stock, then turned 90 degrees and cut into 5 strips. After that I turned tham 90 degrees and pasted them on another card stock moving one square to the left on each strip. What got outside of the card stock was cut and pasted on the right space of the same strip. The horses and other pictures are what I had cut out from baby cards received when she was born.
