This week, though, I decided to stop procrastinating and actually get these into my album!
As I was flipping through the paper pads for Cosmo Cricket's newest collections that Julie so generously sent over (I am super bummed that Two Peas won't be carrying these- luckily Scrapbook.com is stocking them), I came across the new Honky Tonk collection and the nostalgia just hit me. You see, I grew up near Nashville (my parents and brother still live there), and while I don't really enjoy country music, the guitar and cowboy motifs in this collection definitely remind me of home. I remembered that one on my unscrapped weeks included photos from a trip I took to visit my family and see my niece's Christmas program, and since the reds, greens, and woodgrains in this collection just happened to match the Christmas-like colors in my photos, I ran with it!
I love Cosmo Cricket's new collections and definitely plan on doing more than just Project Life with them! This seemed like a good place to start, though- especially with the 8x8 pads in the collection, which I really prefer for cutting down for Project Life- and as soon as I finish up two little rounds of projects that are in the works (which should happen by the end of next week- yay!), I'm going to start scrapping with these papers for sure! And maybe if I have time I can do a Back to the Future series with one of them- I'll have to see how it goes!
