Scrappy Sunday--Pre-bar Edition

The bar is now two days away, and I'm taking a brief break (in between Torts and New York Practice--mmm.....) to bring you a little Sunday scrapbook love.

I made this page for the newest challenge over at Who's that Girl--the other girls have made some amazing pages, so pop over at check it out!

This page highlights new favorite quote: At the worst, a house unkept cannot be so distressing as a life unlived" (by Rose Macauley). As someone who does not clean her house with any sort of inspiring accuracy, I fully appreciate quotes like this. Amen, sister.


This next one is a sweet little card I whipped up, with no particular purpose in mind. I am loving the yellow Dear Lizzy ribbon but trying to find more ways to use it--it has a lot of presence on a project, and I don't want it to be overwhelming.

How have you used this product?


I have many posts percolating in my head, but duty calls.....I will be mostly out of touch this week, since the bar is Tuesday and Wendesday, but I look forward to being back to blogging afterwards!

Have a wonderful week!

  10. Good luck on the Bar Keshet!! You scap and study for an exam like that...forget the cleaning girl, you've got other fish to fry!
    I love your projects, especially that little house you made. Brilliant.
    I am terrified of that Lizzy ribbon, I know I will not exercise the proper restraint as you did on your card.

  16. In my business we say, "break a leg!", or "don't suck!" lol! So, I wish you both of those. :)

    I love that quote, too. I have to admit that I have thought of that sentiment before, but never thought to say it so eloquently. :) I would rather scrap than have a cleaner bedroom. that's the truth!
