Every once in awhile, I figure I need to stop blogging about cats and other random subjects and post a layout. It would help if I were actually producing more layouts these days! I've been busy with class projects and kits, so time for personal scrapbooking is limited right now.
Good thing we have our monthly book club at the store, as it forces me to make something to show for myself. We've been reviewing the book Scrapbook to Cards for the last quarter (good book, by the way, AND it has spiral binding...ahhh). Each month we bring in projects inspired by the book. Usually I forget to even look at the book. Good thing you can't get kicked out for not doing your homework!
Anyway, I put this layout together yesterday before book club (nothing like doing your homework right before class, huh?). I usually don't print photos at home, but this time I was in a big time crunch. After printing the photos and seeing my that DD's arms were a funky shade of purple, I discovered that my beloved Canon was out of yellow ink. I raced to Office Depot, bought a cartridge, zoomed back home, installed it and THEN realized it was the wrong one, even though it fit perfectly and was identical to the original in every way (except for that tiny little number on the side...).
Back to Office Depot I went, this time to pick up the correct yellow cartridge and a magenta one, too, since I noticed upon installing the yellow one that magenta was almost empty. Well, I could not return the yellow one ($11.99) and I could only buy the correct yellow and magenta cartridges in a ginormous combo-pack ($59.99). What's a scrapbooker to do? I swallowed hard, swiped my credit card, and drove back home with the goods. Then, as if to add salt to my wounds, when I walked into the house I found the green Prima flower I'd intended to use on the kitchen floor, partially chewed and slobbered on by Lily.
All told, I figure this little layout cost around $78.
