the proof

i've spent the month in a calvinball contest with paula and doris to see who could scrap the most. points were awarded - 1 pt. for every card, page, and mini-album page created between february 1st and today february 28th.

i have a grand total of 239. my cohorts are still furiously plugging away. doris is currently at 93 and paula has a whopping 156. check out their blogs tomorrow for details. i might make a few more cards tonight. we'll see.

i did 124 layouts and mini-album pages. i'm sharing a few here - but can't show all - some are for assignments and some are just not anything i would share - super simple layouts that just tell our story.

one was digi.
supplies: template (two peas in a bucket) + patterned paper (digi ki memories) + tab (two peas in a bucket) + font (got milk?)

and here's my pile of 95 paper layouts...














i did one mini-album courtesy of aly dosdall on write.click.scrapbook for 28 pages.


i made 114 cards here are most of them. some i sent out as thank yous, valentines and birthdays this month.

i did one altered item for the bella blvd blog crawl on friday...come back to see the whole thing and for your chance to win it!
i spent over 32 hours cropping at new england scrapbook during the month of february and made at least 2 layouts every day. as well i sat in front of the tv a couple nights and cranked out cards. i can not wait to go back to a more normal pace tomorrow. i'll tell you one thing though - this process reinvigorated my love for this hobby. i'm currently 100% back in it - refreshed and obsessed! we usually do this about once per year. next time i'll invite you to play along.
