Had SUCH a awesome time with my girlfriends this past weekend. We went to a 2 day crop, and it was so nice just to catch up, talk eachother’s ears off and CREATE! We haven’t done this all together in a long time, what with Christmas just ending. There were times where we would be laughing our heads off, and other times where I’d look up and we’d all be so engrossed in our work that no one was speaking.
Here’s one of the layouts I completed.
Thanks for looking!
Had a pretty productive weekend as far as scrapbooking goes I went to a fundraising crop in Cooks Creek yesterday, as well as participated in the MSS Online Crop.
I made this LO for Challenges 4, 6 & 9 (challenge #4 seems to be missing, but it was to use a technique you’ve been wanting to try – mine was to mist over those letter stickers and then remove the stickers)
This LO was for challenges 3 & 5
Hoping to get some more done today – thanks for looking!
It’s been a loooong time since I posted – I’m in beautiful Vancouver for a conference for work, and thought I would post on my blog before heading to bed
We had a wonderful day last weekend at my friend Lora Leigh’s – she and her husband just built a beautiful new house in East St. Paul and invited us over for a day of scrapping! She fed us amazing food and we had lots of laughs. I pretty much worked on Project Life 365 the whole day, but I did get one LO done using a few things from my latest Studio Calico kit.
Hope everyone has a great week and thanks for looking!
Alright, well we weren’t in Miami, Florida OR Vegas, but we were in Miami, MB for a Vegas themed crop. A great time was had by all, lots of food, scrapping and socializing. Love is in the Details put on a great weekend for us all!
Here’s what I got done!
A Week off of Life:
Take Note (using my scraps from KP Sketch #12)
Had a GREAT time, can’t wait to do it again next weekend – Scrappin’ Studio style!
Thanks for looking!
Scrapbooking… it’s this thing I like to do in my free time. It seems I have forgotten that lately, caught up in keeping caught up on Project Life. I was very glad to spend a nice day in Cooks Creek yesterday with my scrappy friends and get some LO’s done.
This one was just for the fun of pink. I think I need to make like Thelma and have a bag FULL of pink
And this one was for the MSS online crop… the challenge was to use 4 or more photos.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Thanks for looking
Thought I would post a quick one before I finish my packing and ride off into the sunset to Minneapolis… I AM SO EXCITED!
Here’s a layout we worked on at Sketches on Monday – this is a class everyone should attend! This layout was dreamed up by Kim of the Scrappin’ Studio. Check out her version and other layouts at http://www.thescrappinstudio.blogspot.com…
; the idea usually is that she gives us the sketch and that we would use our own choice of colors and papers… but this paper just went so well with the corrugated cardboard that I just had to use it! Check out my version:
Here’s one of my own that I worked on at the Halloween Hall Crop
I just love being inspired by other people’s work!
Anyway as I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I am off to Minneapolis tomorrow with Lindsay, Allison and Yvonne! We are going to head out Thurs night and spend all Friday at the Mall of America. Saturday, we will be going to IKEA in the morning, and then off to Albertville! I’ve never really been shopping there. I was in the parking lot and went into a few stores, but I was with someone of the other gender (ahem) who might have a slight aversion to giant outlet malls, so needless to say, I didn’t get very far! I guess I can’t really blame the guy…
Christmas shopping begins! See ya when I get back!
Okay OKAY, so it’s been awhile. SORRY! Last week was insanely busy… and it makes this week look just peachy! HAHA! I’ve given some thought to the art of blog posting and have decided that, particularly in this case where I have lots to say on multiple topics, that posting in point form is most appropriate. It’s more to the point, don’t you agree? Alright, so here goes.
New Moon. I’ve have been WAITING and WAITING for this to come out. For those of you that might not know me that well…. I am pretty die hard about Twilight. I tried to fight it when it first came out… but I gave in and have never looked back. I’ve never really been into the Vampire scene… but these books aren’t really about Vampires per say (although it sure makes it interesting!). It’s really more about the love story. I think it all boils down to this… who wouldn’t want to be loved like Edward loves Bella? ANYway…. my fellow Twilight fans might find this a tad offensive… but I am really hoping they knock it out of the park with this one, and do a better job than they did with Twilight. I mean, everyone knows that the book is always better than the movie, right? But in this case, the book was SO much better than the movie. As in, a hundred times better. In the book, Edward and Bella were more like best friends. They spent more time together, they cuddled, just closer as a whole – there was so much chemistry! But when I saw the movie the first time, while the fan in me “liked” it, I was hoping for sooo much more. For starters, it felt documentary-ish. Edward and Bella seemed to have a weird chemistry onscreen, completely different to what I felt in the book. Even their faces… I mean I know they’re vampires, but are you telling me that if you were walking down the street and saw someone that blatantly pale, you wouldn’t think it was weird? So now they have a new director, and I’m hoping to feel sort of like I did when I read the book. I know it will still not be the same, but that’s okay. Which also leads me to knowing that New Moon is my least favorite book in the series – I was SHOCKED when Edward left, and then pissed the rest of the time as Bella fell into a depressed oblivion, and spent more and more time with Jacob. Bah! Needless to say I’ll be waiting for the scene in Italy where Bella finds Edward and makes all the madness stop! Very excited for the movie to come out!
Check out my Halloween Cupcake lab… I had volunteered to make festive cupcakes for Kim`s Scrappin’ Studio Hall Crop… so I figured while I was at it, I might as well make an extra batch and bring them into work! Took me two evenings, but well worth it!
These next few shots are of us at work! Can you believe five Halloween`s and I`ve never dressed up at work??? Well, we sure made up for that this year!
I think Chris might be enjoying this…
