MacGyvering a 'T' and a new size

With the advent of oh-so-nice weather, I haven't been scrapping all that much. Most weekend time lately is spent outside whipping our yard into shape or on other endeavors. Thanks to my general poor blogging habits though, I have many, many projects I have not shared here. So time to reach back to a crop I attended at the end of January for some cute pages!

First is a page I got to get a little creative on. I'm getting to the point where I am *gasp* running out of Thickers! The horrors! So I combined two fonts. Not exactly a great artistic achievement, but I don't think I'd done that yet and I really liked the way it came out. the bigger deal though is the fact that I ran out of Ts! Yes, I apparently use that particular consonant quite often and had a hard time getting the statement 'grad night' out, so since I rarely crap about quince apples, quiches, or quarks, I sacrificed a Q in the name of pupular scrapocity and MacGyvered myself a T. I also just learned how to correctly spell MacGyver.

I also tried out 8.5x11 for the first time at this same crop. I like this size a lot- I had been getting somewhat tired of single pictures on a whole 12x12. Sometimes I still like it (as in the page I posted just above), but other times it's too much white space, but 6x6 is too small to write much. So 8.5x11 is the perfect compromise!

In case you are wondering, yes, the lacy page is hard to cram into a page protector, but not impossible.

WHAT?!?! A POST?!?!?! Woo-hoo!

Love your pages! BTW, you got the MacGyver part right, but you typo'd s-crap and pupular. :-) I am your worst nightmare.

Welcome back to the blogoshpere!

Pupular and scrapocity are actually the intended words. They just aren't real words.
