Daisies and A Secret

Back in June when the daisies were in full bloom we couldn't stop picking them for our table. Each walk we'd pick some more. And finally I remembered to bring the camera along. Which turned out being the last walk before they mowed the path and all the daisies down.

I had daisies on my mind so I made a card at work using the Fiskers punch "Oopsie Daisy", the Slice and some May Arts ribbon. I'd be more specific if A. I had posted these when I made them and B. I wasn't sneezing my brains out due to allergies. Which I've not had any troubles with till this morning. Yes, I'm taking meds to help but they make things a little fuzzy along with curbing the sneezing.

So, here's my dirty little secret. The only "scrap booking" I've ever done was my wedding album ten years ago and that was because a dear friend gave me a complete kit as a gift. I had no clue what to do and at the time no idea where to find help. I know I'm a creative person, I've been fortunate enough to attend college and earn a BA in Studio Art. Focusing on sculpture, jewelry and print making. I lean towards 3 dimensional art. I felt obligated to complete my album and I'm glad I did in all it's basic-ness. Though I'm not sure it falls in the realm of today's "idea" of scrapping. Which I love and am now dipping my toes in. Working at Paper Studio I should have known it was only a matter of time. Without further ado... here's my first official layout in 10 years (or ever) depending on how you look at it.
I used a sketch found on Pencil Lines from Anna Bowkis. I find sketches very helpful. I like having some structure or boundries.
I've finished two more layouts in the past week, both using sketches as guides. Looks like I've found yet another creative outlet to enjoy!
