Joy's Life Altered Composition Book Blog Hop

Happy Friday!!  I am glad you are here for this Altered Composition Book Blog Hop hosted by Joy!

I decided that I needed to have a book that I could carry with me to and from work to help keep track of my sketch ideas and color combinations that hit me throughout the day.  I work in the printing industry so fresh layouts and color combos come across my desk almost on a daily basis.  Sounds great right??  Well it would be great if I had all my supplies with me at work and I could crank something out as the ideas hit me, but sadly that is not the case and most of my ideas get lost somewhere in my head by the time the weekend comes and I am able to be crafty.  This book will help me be more organized with my thoughts.  I can quickly sketch out a card or scrapbook layout or even tape down color combo swatches throughout the day and have everything available in one place when I get the chance to play!

Patterned Paper - Graph Paper
Diecut Images - Lettering Delights Fonts = SNF Sketchy and LD Chaplin

Every 2nd Counts - Just Saying Hello

It has been a while since I have been able to play in my craft room since my daughter is testing her new found independence with crawling and pulling up.  Before she would play quietly with her toys in the middle of my room while I knocked out a card or project.  Not anymore...little miss grabby hands wants to touch everything and be in the middle of what I am doing.  I made this card quickly using scraps on my work station before she could do any real damage!  Talk about making every second count!
