Following up on my 2012 scrappy goals

So, as I wrote in this post I have some new scrappy goals for this year. One of the goals was to keep a file for each Studio Calico kit on my laptop, and photograph every single layout I make. That way I can go back and see what I've gotten out of each kit, and which ones should give more. Today I've flipped through all my albums and taken out all the layouts that I hadn't photographed before, because I wasn't planning on sharing them. Then I sorted them into my laptop files. This is the number of projects from each kit:
  • Paper Moon: 13 (killed)
  • Mind the gap: 13
  • Boardwalk: 14
  • Glee Club: 17
  • Field Guide: 11
  • Handmade: 10
  • Brooklyn Flee: 7
  • County Fair: 14
Glee Club keeps resurrecting itself! I made two more yesterday:

This is not as far from my scrap style as you can get, but at least half way there. Let's just say there's a reason why I prefer placing my elements crooked from the beginning... But I still had to try this one out when I saw Stephanie's insider tip on the SC blog.
I can't figure out how the straightening tool in Photoshop works, so it looks to be leaning to the left. (Feel free to share tips!)

Then I have a photo I absolutely love, but that I haven't been able to scrap. I've tried many times, but I'm never happy with the results. I think it is the colors in the photo that makes it hard to scrap. Then I remember a layout by Tina Aszmus in the Glee Club gallery, so I ripped her off completely. Not a thing my own here, but I love the result!

Tomorrow's Monday again, so back to work!
