The page I decided to scrap today was less about the scrapbooking and more about getting rid of items in my "to-be-scrapbooked" drawer.  This is the first article I ever wrote for my campus's newspaper and I decided to scrapbook it to keep it from getting lost and eaten by my room.  The page is simple and to be honest, just tossed together, but it serves its purpose.  And I got to use a bunch of scrap paper and paper that I'd totally forgotten I even had, so yet another bonus.

I had fun doing this page today because I was able to use a lot of different textures.  I made this page for a Pixels and Paper challenge.  The challenge was to use the following image as inspiration for your page.  I was mostly inspired by the way that the balloon in the photo really stood out and popped with fun colors against a much more neutral background.  I took that concept and started playing around with different papers and such that I had and created my page which features pictures of a girls night from a year or so ago when we went bowling.  Of course, being the nerdy English major I am, I couldn't resist making a pun for the title.  The page isn't very fancy embellishment wise or anything but I did like playing with the layout a lot.  I am pleased overall.

I made this page a week or two ago but haven't had time to post or update this blog really so I thought I'd share just to get back in the habit of blogging again.  The items featured on it are a ticket and the sleeve that held all the tickets from when my family went to see I Don't Need To Show You No Stinkin' Badges at my college after I helped work on the set and props and such.  It was a very odd show and very...interesting?...but I was still quite proud of my contribution.  The plot and directing may have been bizzarre but that set looked awesome!

I hadn't scrapbooked in awhile and had quite a busy weekend but I did get to cleaning out my room which is where I found a newspaper from my school with an article I wrote in it.  I had the most fun writing it out of all the ones I did and I decided to scrapbook it!
