The first of my Everydays!

As I said in my previous post, thanks to a video of Shimelles, I want to capture the everyday moments in our lives ... and well, this is one everyday moments that happens throughout my day!

Yup, Google reader.  I'm a firm believer in that if you blog, you should take the time to check out, and reply to other peoples.  We all like to get comments, and I like to give a little thank you back to my friends that inspire me.  So here it is the first of many everyday moments from me.

The layout was actually created for a challenge over on UKS, where you had to scrap in blue, use products you'd been keeping for special and in a size that you don't normally scrap in. Well, 8.5 x 11 was totally new to me, but do you know, I really enjoyed it.  I think, I'll be shopping for that size album soon :)

Ok, back to clearing up and sorting out my craft room for more scrapping ... goodness, what has got into me :)

  6. Me too. You are right - it's only becomes a community when everyone contributes. So hurray for this page and the time you spend with your Read (I know I appreciate it!) And I love this size - are you going to do more?

  8. Lovely 8.5x11 page! Google Reader is most decidedly a part of my every day life. I agree, blogging is really the most fun when it is a give and take proposition.

  10. Loving the layout, ESP the different stamping emellishments. It's nice together a comment or two and meet like minded crafters. Blogs are great for this.

  11. This layout has a really strong graphic appeal, Sandra - it's beautiful! I like scrapping that size - the albums are a lot less bulky, but sometimes I just scrap in A4 size. Glad you've found some mojo! :)

  16. I love when people scrap their everyday lives! I started with 8.5x11 and reluctantly went to 12x12 when they start offering so few albums that size. I have been happy to see them being offered more and more the last two years. The layout is lovely. Cannot imagine a blog life with Google Reader. I am trying to work into daily life bec if I don't I find myself with so much to catch up on.

  21. I think your layout is fabulous! I do use this size every now and then, I like my D-ring binders for this very reason, you can make whatever size lo you want and add it. I agree as well about the commenting, it sure gives a community feel when it's reciprocated.
