The P52 post that wasn't

This post was going to be devoted to Project52. I had four weekly photos to share. They were beautiful too. But then I went and participated in a highly successful bloghop the other day (thank you sooooo much everyone for participating, it was a blast) and the amount of visits here made the bandwith on my Photobucket account max out. Bwah! Who knew? Not I. Not that they had a limit. Not that I would ever be in danger of surpassing it!

So if you are new to this blog, and there are just a bunch of ugly little squares where my colourful and glossy photos should be, I am terribly sorry! I am currently looking into going pro - on Photobucket that is - but I am usure if I want to make that commitment ... It feels awfully big. Like getting married almost ... Not that I have had any other (again, online photo storage that is) for years and years but I do admit to eyeing other potentials from time to time. I have to say, Flickr is and has been since the beginning very tempting. I have just been too settled, and quite frankly lazy lol, to move everything over.

So, what I really wanted to say was "I'm sorry, but no photos today".

I can, however, link to a layout I scrapped for one of the Birthday Challenges over at this past weekend.

The challenge was to use the quote

"Everything you can imagine is real"

by Pablo Picasso. I created the wordart as a freebie for the challenge and also asked everyone to use a colour in the green colour family and use circles in the LO. Here's my own take on that challenge.
Imagine LO

I used papers and the pearl buttons from my Make a Splash kit and one of the templates in the It's a start 2 set.

It's been ages since I scrapped last. Mostly when I sit at the computer, and I admit that happens quite a lot lol, it's to work on my designs. To just play and put something together was so freeing. I loved how  much I enjoyed working on it and accomplished I felt when I had finished the layout. I really must do some more scrapping!

OK, so Friday is a big holiday around these parts of the world and I will be off celebrating Midsummer's Eve all day. So if you don't hear back from me in a couple of days, you know what I'm up to. Hee! I promise I will work on those photos too.

  1. Have a great 'midsummer' celebration. A friend from Finland just wrote me that they are celebrating Juhannus. Also, love your layout for the challenge.
