Don't You Just Love It...

...when everything is organised in your scrap space? You feel so "light" and happy. :) I never really have my room in an extreme mess or anything...but I do have 2-3 "hot spots" where things tend to pile up. I can't really do too much about it as my room is so tiny (I stretch out my arms and I can touch the opposite walls - no joke). Storage is very limited. Anyway, if I don't put new stuff away when I get it or stuff when I have it out and use it...it tends to create one of these little "piles" over time.

As of this morning I would say I had 3 of these "piles of stuff" and it's been bothering me for days now so I got down on the floor and dealt with the stuff that I had leaning against the door. I had to be ruthless and throw some old stuff so I could fit everything in. Anyway I'm rambling...LOL! I got two piles cleared and it feels soooo great :) I have one minor thing to deal with...my window sill where I just piled some old packs of Heidi Swapp chipboard and some developed photos as I was scrapping the other week, for lack of other space, and then it's all good again :)

Got this layout to show you too. Done for the Cathy class. I loved the look of the sketch when we got it, but as I started to scrap I wasn't sure...not until I started playing with some stamps and rub-ons and it suddenly worked a lot better. I have found that I love Cathy's style, but for *me* to be happy with what *I* do I need to take it just that step further and add a little more :)

Looks great! How do you emboss the entire 12x12 piece like you did? I seem to get a weird edge with my cuttlebug when I tried a few test pieces. Maybe I need to practice a bit more.
