A LO just because I can!!!

It's been a while since I scrapped. I was actually thinking about packing everything away for a while so our bedroom could be clean and so maybe I could just let my creativity simmer on a back burner for a while. Without actually doing anything. But then I had a surge of mojo and did three LOs today!
This one is my favorite I made of the three:

Love the bright colors!
The subject is reels. DH used to purchase these monsters, which I personally think of as giant spools of thread =). They're used for sub-sea cables and measure, at least these ones, 35 feet across. Hence the title; "35 foot reels".

For Pencil Lines sketch #167 by Donna Downey

I found this to be a very challenging sketch. Tried my best to work with it and this is what I came up with:

For Skissedilla's sketch # 40.

"Is this really winter wear?"

I've been so bad about taking pictures this winter that I decided to use a photo from last year for this LO.

For Skissedilla's sketch #39

It's been a while since I joined in on the fun over at Skissedilla. Been kind'a busy...
But now it's Christmas and I have two weeks off work! And I'm finally back in the mood to scrap. So I did and here's my take on sketch #39:

The little strips are cut-offs from the photos for my Christmas cards this year. And the red tag was a to/from tag on a present from my sister. Just flipped it over. The little lady at the bottom is from a tights package from Anthroplogie. =) Trying to re-use and re-purpose as much as I can these days. I have to say I'm really good at re-cycling! And now we'll have separated trash too! Yeay! I've been waiting eagerly for that.
