Ready, Set, Scrap!

Hi everyone!

I'm always envious of fast scrappers because it's something I'm not. Just imagine being able to crank out gorgeous page, after page! My endless pile of photos might actually get smaller!

Well this month's challenge with True XOXO Scrapbooking asks for just ONE thing: ONE hour! That's right, print that photo, get your supplies ready and then SCRAP for one hour!

I really enjoyed this challenge because it took me to the core of how I scrap...what are my go to supplies? What techniques do I turn to? I'll be honest, I thought a lot more than an hour about my page before putting anything down on paper but that's the way I work! My page took 1 hour and 4 min to actually make...

What are my go to supplies? Over and over again, I turn towards my paints, inks, and mists. 
What techniques do I turn to? I love to...wait, NEED to splatter, spray, or drip color to feel good about a page...weird? On this page I took my Faber Castell gelato sticks and mixed them with water to paint and splatter on my paper.

Here's our youngest (then 5 months old) attending her
first luau in Kauai.

So plenty of time for everyone to join in the challenge but, hey, we're only asking for one hour so why not join in and get it done now;)

Well that's my page for today! Thank you for your visit and comments!
