A Second Start

In March of 2010 I ordered my very first Studio Calico kit.  It was called Quilting Bee and I don't know that I could have been any more excited.


I also picked up two add-ons called Wedding Ring and Honeycomb.



I'd recently done a massive overhaul of my scrap room with the help of a wonderful (and super organized) friend, Rose.  The clean up had allowed me to actually get at my supplies and I was inspired to start creating.

It also inspired me to start shopping, hence, the new SC kits.  Below is the first layout I made with those kits and the first paper layout I'd made in about 5 years.

I'd been collecting paper and embellishments throughout that time, but I'd neglected to use much of it.  I'd been bitten by the digital scrapbook bug and had created almost exclusively via digital products.  But now, my inner paper maven had been released.  This was the second start to my paper scrapping career!

I thought all of you might enjoy seeing what got me going. And my first layout.  Here tis!







I was so happy with my start and I couldn't wait to continue.  I haven't counted but I'm pretty sure I've made at least 100 pages since this one!

Maybe I'll get brave and show you my actual first one day. That would have been almost 10 years ago with a very definite Creative Memories feel!

Have a fabulous day!
