Every Day

I finally conquered one of my scrappin' fears....an 8.5x11 layout! Yay! I see so many cool layouts in this size and finally got the courage to do one myself. I like how it turned out for my first one too! And, this is the first time in a little while that I have done a layout without a sketch. Everyone knows I love sketches, but letting your mojo flow is fab too!

The photo was taken last week while I was sitting in traffic driving home at rush hour. This is my daily commute. UGH! For some reason I decided to pull out my camera and snap a pic, despite the odd stares from a few drivers! LOL! I get sooooo tired of dealing with this on a daily basis but there is not much I can do about it. I work an easy 30 minutes from home....in good traffic. My morning drive is usually not this bad, but evenings are always crazy. I totally identify with the song, How Far We've Come, by Matchbox Twenty. I like to listen to the part about sitting in traffic...when I am sitting in traffic. hehehe If you haven't ever heard it, take a listen to it HERE.

Most of the products I used are Reminiscence. I won a small kit when I went to a crop at my LSS quite awhile back and finally decided to use it. I also used some thickers and some random letter stickers from my stash. The black chipboard arrow is also from my stash and I inked the edges of the papers with StampCraft black ink. I also used a Uniball Vision Elite black pen (my fav for journaling and such) to draw all the lines, the circle and to journal. Thanks for taking a look and I hope you like my first stab at this size! It is pretty simple but I kind of like that too. And although it was cloudy, at least it wasn't raining again and I got outdoors to take my pics! I do love rain, but not so much when it interferes with my scrappy photos! LOL! Happy Scrapping!
