And the World's Slowest Scrapper Award goes to...

**drum roll please!**

...ME!

I printed this pictures 9 days ago.  
8 days ago I cut the title and some embellishments.
7 days ago I set up my camera and gathered papers, embellishments and all the other *stuff* that I thought I'd need.  That was last Sunday night and I hoped that when I came home from work on Monday I'd have enough juice to play a little. 

I don't know what I was thinking, but I wasn't thinking "Hey, I tutor tomorrow after work."  Doh.  And you'd thinking "Tutoring. Whoopee do.  It's a whole hour."  True that.  But there's also showering involved, commuting, stopping at the grocery store afterward for dinner stuff...  It's exhausting. :P

So not Monday.
Or Tuesday.  
And Wednesday was another tutoring day.  Which means showering and all that stuff.  

(Please know that I shower every day.  Actually, twice a day on word days b/c I come a sweaty, gross mess.  I'm mostly just kidding about the showering, but it does seem to suck up a lot of my time these days.)

So Thursday I got up at 7 a.m. (showered) and then scrapbooked.  HALLELUJAH

And I made this:


Clearly, this is not a layout that should have taken so long, but alas...  I need more RockStar and less...I dunno...work. (just kidding)

If you're the kind of person who likes to watch another person scrapbook, then, boy, do I have a treat for you!


And because I said I have some detail shots, here they are:


This is Magic Scraps drizzled over Glossy Accents.  I think that maybe I was a little heavier-handed with the glue than I meant to be.  Note to self: you really need to wear your reading glasses when you do this stuff. :P


 If you ask an 11th grader what the quadratic equation, your answer is "?"  Most appropriate use of this embellishment.  It's just a picture of the windows in the school cafeteria, but...whatever. :P



It's a cement post in a parking lot, and someone had put a shiny red party hat on it.  Add some snow and a perfectly situated dark smudge and you get a exotic concrete bird.  

Okay, this was not an especially exciting post, but the men folk are itching to go grocery shopping.  Because there's food at the other end of that trip.

Catch you next time! Thank you for stopping by!


p.s. December's Instagram collage page is here and January's page can be seen here.

  2. Great idea for a layout! I don't always have a big story about everything I post on Instagram... this would be a great way to record the random pics!!
