From "Desk" to "Done"...

I scrapped again. It felt so good. I never realized how two handed an activity scrapping is until I broke my arm {for those of you who missed it - I broke my left arm in five places in early March, which is why it hasn't been very crafty on here lately}. I have so many amazing pictures I need to scrap...I kind of feel like I have scrapping A.D.D.

I had a morning to explore in Tokyo & I headed off on the subway to the Harajuku district - the Japanese punk capital of the city. I loved it!!!! I bought the pink skull & crossbones decal in the upper right corner of the page while I was there.

The style over there is to do a lot of layering of prints and colors with with ramped up pastels & black.

I sanded the letters on the title & cut out hearts from Luxe's Color Me...Loved paper. I included a piece of origami paper I picked up there too. I also cut and stitched a felt heart and used ribbons to add additional textures to the page. The stuff in the shops was outrageous {check out the smaller pictures}.

I have so many great Harajuku photos, I'm sure you'll see more pages, maybe even a mini album...
