Another one of those

I decided to finish the page that came together totally unexpectedly. I was cleaning the surface area of my creative corner and was so excited to begin our challenge last week that I just started placing pieces of paper together. Colors and patterns that reminded me of my childhood, without a picture or story in mind. I didn't even sit down. (new pictures. Forgot my key sticker the first time. Not a big deal, I know, but now it's there)

Half circle has some stickers on from my new pack I got at Jo-Ann's. Title came from the same sheet. I love when stickers have very common and often used words in an often used color. These are chocolate. (Doesn't it sound better than brown? Well, it is very dark brown, which makes it chocolate. Right?)


This is one of my very favorite color combinations - shades of pink and peach with browns. Have to use new color combination for this week's challenge. I do have a few options, but now I have to decide what picture or story could go with one of them.

I hope you have a great day!

  1. I really like this color combination as well as the layout. You know, as I was trying to take a picture of the area where I like the color combination, I really thought of your camera...

  5. Just wanna say, I Love this layout!!! It just makes you realize how small the world actually is... having mommy and daddy there, anya & tanya and their freinds as Misha Savin, Nikolenko, and D.Borya & wife, who lived in different citys but came for 1 picture... and then ALL leaving to a compleatly different contenent and STILL reconecting, i think is just really neat! By the way... this picture "almost" could be retaken with all those poeple again.. like a before and after... just thought i'd share my thought

  7. I took out my scrapbooking stuff, and tried to come up with a layout from what i had. Nope...i don't think I can do it. I started thinking about stuff that i want to buy, then i count how much money i need, so i just decided to stop there...

  8. Lora, i don't know how u manage to do it all..do u sleep at night?

  9. Anonymous :) - I thought it was you... who else would talk about Mufasa in such a way :)
    Katya - we are all willing to lend you things, I don't have much but whatever I do you can use and Anka also said the same thing. Try again :) ask us for anything and we'll share (at least I will ;)
    Yea, school keeps me busy, and yes I do sleep at night :) and sometimes even nap during the day :) it's hard, but time management is the key and I have become better at managing my time. Especially at times when there are unpredictable things that life throws at you...it's a bit harder then, but your prayers and support are always welcome!!

  10. Katya, it all depends what do you want to get out of this. If you just want to record your life's little stories and blessings, nothing should stand in your way. You might want to visit blogs by Ali Edwards and Cathy Zielske to see that you DON'T need much stuff to do that. And, also, there are a number of sites that make scrapbooking kits (that have enough material to make a page or two). You don't have to sign up, I'll make you one. So, whatever our challenge will be for next week, I'll bring you your kit to participate with us.
    Lora, we'll keep you in our prayers.

  14. hi..its 2 11 am and i cant sleep. I i shouldnt have had that strong tea at 11 pm at anka's house. Well..as u all know i am very creative at this time of day. So i decided to switch my blog name to Dus'ka.

    ОтветитьУдалить
  15. You mean "at this time of night"... And by the way, I didn't pronice to glue everything for you with instructions "place photo HERE". I'm only willing to make a kit. Designing would have to come from you Katya-Dus'ka-Sister-in-law :))

    ОтветитьУдалить
  16. hehe, Dus'ka, you crack me up :) And why wasn't I invited for the tea time? well, no, that would have been bad too, I would have probably been writing weird things on my papers for school lol So, you are taking it a notch higher, not only do you want the supplies and paper, but a ready layout so you can only glue the picture :) hmmm...Anya can you do the same for me while i'm in school :) ;)

    ОтветитьУдалить
  17. Lorachka, the reason you weren't invited is because girls just let me know that they were coming and I had no idea who was coming. Basically, they visited me! And Dus'ka, same here, I couldn't fall asleep either. I really shouldn't have any caffeine after 5pm or so. How was Danik? Any better? Or worse?

  18. Hey, Marusya! I decided to give celery a try with peanut butter, I absolutely hated celery before. It's not so bad with peanut butter! And, Dus'ka, those stuffed mushrooms were the best!

  19. Ha-ha-ha... Who needs email these days anymore :)
    I didn't drink that "tea" you were, but I didn't sleep very well either. My kids wanted to have sleepover, and four of us slept on the floor in the living room... I know. It was fun for them. Comfort? That's another question. At least, I was waiting for morning to come sooner. :)

  20. Anya it so funny you actually did it, I was planning on doing this kind of sleep over myself and kept putting it off. I guess it it not as bad sleeping on the floor when it's warmer in the living room. And how do kids come up with such an ideas.
    Anka I am glad you actually tried it, I told you it wasn't bad. I used to hate celery myself and only after eating it with peanut butter for a while I started to like it in other dishes too.

    ОтветитьУдалить
  21. O, Dus'ka I really like your new name. Dus'ka and Marus'ka sounds good isn't it?
    And by the way if you end up getting a packet with some papers from Anya, you better make a page so we all can enjoy. Your DD turned out very nice, so I think you can do it. Plus you can get all that help from some special neibors.

  22. Yea, Katya! You live not so far from scrappaholic, lol. And guys, I found out in my nutrition class recently that celery actually has negative calories. That is, it takes more calories to digest it. That's a very interesting fact, I thought.

    ОтветитьУдалить
  23. Ohh I read so many comments i don't know what to write first.
    Anya, thank u for my future pack ..
    Marusya, i tried celery and peanut butter last week...it was disgusting...the calery is still sitting in my fringe..
    Lora, sorry u werent at the tea party, but see it this way at least u were sleeping at night not like the rest of us.
    Anka, watch out...i can start stopping by every day for supplies

  25. And yea, dus'ka? What do you eat? It seems like you don't like anything, you picky girl!

    ОтветитьУдалить
  26. Wow, again I've been missing a lot! :) Anka, that's very interesting about celeraly. I can eat anything but I'd rather have my other fruits and veggies :) Stuffed mushrooms....yummy!!! Now that's my type of veggie :)

  27. So Katya, now when you are not at home, I'll know where to look for you...at Anka's house lol

  28. I left a comment earlier and it wasnt posted :(
    Anka, do u drink milk? no do u eat meat? no do u like sweets? no
    I think u r much pickier than i am.
    About what i eat? peanutbutter sandwiches and about 2 cups of cinnamon toast crunch cereal a day. Those r my late night cravings.Anybody else having sugar cravings?

    ОтветитьУдалить
  29. Anka, I mean I didn't see you in church.
    Duska - I crave everything :) but most of all I love pizza (from the unhealthy foods department :) I can eat that every day :) I'm not that crazy about sweets, I love them and have them almost every day (a little something) but I'm much more about the real deal :) the main stuff :) although some might argue about what the real deal is.... ;)

  30. Dus'ka if you have sugar cravings then you really belong to Vdov family, we all strugle with it. And there is no easy way to get rid of it. So the solution I can offer is after having a big piece of cake or whatever sweets you crave, have some celery with negative calories in it, and you will be fine.

    ОтветитьУдалить
  31. I don't know how you, Dus'ka, came up with me not liking sweets. I love then as long as I have the salty stuff before them. And yea, I love everything that's made out of milk, but don't drink milk, lol. And I agree with Lora, my absolute favorite stuff is pizza and chips, yum! But, as a future dietian, I shouldn't be saying that!

    ОтветитьУдалить
  32. yeah, pizza is good. Marusya, i wish it was that easy. But if i had to eat celery after i had a cake, i wouldn't probably eat the cake then.

  33. Anya, can't wait for those layouts to be posted!

  34. hehe Dus'ka, absolutely right!!! Anka clarified everything, yes, sweets after sour, must have the sour!!! And I love bread too, eat it with almost everything. Chocolate chip muffins anyone?
