I am away for the weekend with lots of stuff on my creative agenda; completion of layouts, creation of new layouts and creation and assembly of my Scrapbook on The Road project.
I started off a little rocky yesterday afternoon. I realized when I got here that I left my tool tote and my trimmer behind at home, and I live about 45 minutes away from where the crop is in Danbury. I tried to bribe both of my sons with gas money to bring the stuff to me but they wouldn't take the bait. Interesting,because money usually always talks with those two!I called my husband so he could get everything together for my friend Barbara to pick up on her way today and he actually asked,"what's wrong with you?" I laughed and said, "I'm one hot mess!". He knows I always make a "to do" list before I go away. Apparently I shouldn't deviate from that routine. Its all good though. I borrowed a trimmer and a pair of scissors from 2 people (thank god we all know eachother, and thanks to Ruth and Julie for helping my out) and then had to buy 2 monoadhesives.....to the tune of $6.99 each. Ugh, that hurt. I usually buy Tombo refills in bulk from Ruth for $2.00 each!
At any rate, I finally settled down to get to work at about 4 or so and tackled completing 2 layouts that needed photographs. Easy peasy..
This was a Basic Grey kit from the kit club in 2010. I wasn't crazy about it when I made it and I'm still not now. Maybe its the photos? Maybe its the lack of embellies? Maybe I expected more since it costs a significant amount of money per layout each month?
This layout is a design from The Scrapbook Diaries . Janine does beautiful, detailed work and I am always pleased with the finished projects she designs.
This layout is also from the Basic Grey kit club 2010. It was originally a travel theme designed by Greta Hammond. She had created a 2 page layout about visiting Chicago, but I modified it a little to tell a story about a trip to the Stride Rite shoe store. I think the Wander collection worked out ok for this.
Next on my list is my Scrapbook on The Road project. I am looking forward to getting this done and ready for my trip to Tanzania in August.
And I won a raffle!! Woot! Woot!
I'll be back again with more to share!
Thanks for stopping by!
