When I Can't Sleep


Right now I am working on my Road Trip scrapbook. I don't have any of the pictures yet, they should be in by next Thursday... as in Saturday to Thursday... so I have OVER A WEEK to wait for them. In the mean time though, I am working on my M&M's page from when we went to M&M's World.

In true scrapbooker fashion, while we were at the store, I picked up an extra bag for the scrapbook!

I got the idea to punch out a bunch of circles and glue them onto a sheet of paper to then slide into the bag, making it look like there were a bunch of M&M's inside! The said dots were pretty tiny!

I figured the best way to do it was to scatter them around as I placed them down. You don't want too many bunching in the corners or anything!

I did a few red, a few yellow, a few green, a few orange, a few blue and so forth and so on to get even coverage. You don't want too many of one color!

I still have so more to do, but I don't feel like punching out anymore dots tonight, so this is what I have so far. I think it will be finished tomorrow! YAY! I'm super excited about it!

The kind of scrapbook I got has a photo opening on the front, and I'm not sure if I want to do a picture there, or a title. I'm going with the title for now. Then I think I'll work on the cover page as well. Those are things I don't need pictures for, so that's what I'll be working on until I get them in!

Look out for updates!

That is such a cute idea I love it.
I want to start scrapbooking but I have so many pictures, I have no idea where to start!
