Scrapbooking is something I've always been interested in, but life is always so busy. For years I would pass by my black bag of scrapbook stuff and hear the paper and pens and embellishments calling to me. Unfortunately, I rarely found the time to listen.

Well, thanks to a friend of mine (that you can find at Carrie's Alley) I have finally gotten [back] into it again. I have also found many helpful blogs for making layouts and cards (you can find those by going to my profile and seeing who I follow).

Due to the inspiration from others I made the following birthday cards for some friends earlier this month.

Here are both of the cards I made. Similar in design with their own personal touches.

To personalize them I went with the initial of the first friend and age of the second.

Here is a close-up of the second.
(the stamp hit the paper sooner than I expected on this one - oops!)

I'll be posting some recent layouts soon. I meet with some friends once a month now and I'm actually getting some stuff done.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll be back!
