Posting a little eye candy today.....

No, not my husband.  Johnny of course.  Ha ha.
This is probably the closest I will ever get to a famous movie star and it's not even him, it's his wax counterpart!  If it wasn't wierd and prohibited I would have taken him home with me because seriously, the wax figures are CRAZY realistic.  And I gave him a really close look too.  Bizarro.
Here's a close up...

Now off to find my Pirates of the Caribbean dvds, I feel a Johnny Depp movie marathon coming on.....

New Adventures in Scrapbooking

In January I had the strange urge to scrap an 8.5 x 11. 

I am a traditionalist-lets-not-stray-from-the-routine kind of a girl and have solely been scrapping 12 x 12 for the last 3 1/2 years, yet when the idea got into my head I jumped right in.

Well, maybe jumped is not quite the right word, more like I dipped my toe into the water with this first layout. 

Honestly, I was stumped by the page size.  It is not square and there is less space.  Ha.  To save myself lots of stress and wasted time thinking about, I chose an 8.5 x 11 layout that I had pinned and used its design as a starting point for my own layout that way I could get a feel for the new size.  (You can see the layout that I pinned here.)


Hollywood & Vine.  Very famous intersection in Hollywood and the subject of my very first 8.5 X 11.
